All Saints War Memorial HallPrint Page
The All Saints War Memorial Hall was built by Parishioners in 1926 and dedicated to those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.
A new parish hall at All Saints' Church, Parramatta, was opened on Saturday by Major-General C.F. Cox. Bishop G. D'Arcy Irvine presided, and there were also present the Revs. S. M. Johnstone (rural dean) H. A. Barder (rector), O G. Dent, and John Patterson, Mr E. K. Bowden, M. P., and Mr. A. Bruntnell, M.L A. Bishop D'Arcy Irvine said the hall was worthy of Parramatta-one of the finest and most historic towns in the state. Halls of this nature were built to help mould the character of young Australians, and, consequently, to mould the destiny of our wondurful land. Major General Cox said that a memorial parish hall was an excellent institution, but there should be no hall called a memorial hall unless it had the names of every man who enlisted from the parish inscribed in bronze or marble in it. Those towns who failed to erect memorials after the Boer War had forgotten the men that enlisted from their midst, and unless the names were inscribed the same would happen again. He congratulated the parishioners upon their excellent work in building such a fine hall, and he dedicated the building in loving memory of Australia's sons who fell in the Great War."
