Sunbury Memorial HallPrint Page
Sunbury Memorial Hall commemorates those who served in World War One .
The Sunbury Memorial Hall has its origins in the Sunbury Mechanics' Institute, which was erected on the same site in 1885. Remodelled in 1922 and renamed the Sunbury Memorial Hall, an act which expressed the desire of the community to commemorate local participation in the First World War. In March 1938, a fire destroyed part of the Memorial Hall and much rebuilding was required.
The soldiers' memorial hall was gutted by fire last night. The alarm was given shortly before midnight, and the Sunbury brigade was quickly on the scene. The hall and rear buildings were destroyed, but the brigade made an excellent save of the shire office and the returned soldiers' clubrooms. The cause of the fire is not known.
