The Kaimata and Waitui rolls of honour are housed in the Kaimata-Waitui Districts Hall. The original Kaimata hall was built in 1901 but demolished in 1988. The present hall was opened in 1990.

The Kaimata First World War and Second World War rolls of honour are wooden tablets which list 33 and 39 names respectively. Compilation of the First World War roll of honour evidently ceased with the departure of the 28th Reinforcement in September 1919, therefore the list of those who gave their lives is incomplete (the memorial tablet in St John’s Peace Memorial Church records a larger number of deaths).

The Waitui First World War roll of honour is a wooden shield to with a brass plate inscribed with 17 names: Albert Hunt, Robert D. Bakewell, Roy Clarke, Wilfred Thompson, Leonard Hunter, Murdoch McRae, Duncan McRae, Albert Hunter, Charles Rowson, Robert O. Williams, Charles Sattler, Robert Hunter, Cecil Randell, Lionel Bishop, George Morgan, Frank Sattler and Stan Rowson. The Waitui Second World War roll of honour is a plain wooden tablet which records 28 names, including the name of one woman, Lillian Bannan, who served overseas as a WAAC.
