Dublin Methodist Church Memorial Hall Print Page Print this page

Dublin Methodist Church Memorial Hall was erected in memory of the fallen of World War One. The church is now a private residence and a cairn has been erected at the site.

In 1920 following the conclusion of World War One, an extension to the Dublin Church was planned for a Memorial Hall and Kindergarten and Mr Rossiter provided the plans and specifications. A tender was accepted  for Mr Jonathon Porter to be paid 95 pounds to build the extension.

On 24 April 1920 the foundation stone was laid by Mrs G Taylor to the Glory of God and in memory of the three soldiers from the district who were Killed in Action during World War One - Pte Norman Thompson, Pte Lloyd Habner and Liet. Cecil E. Patterson. The hall was also blessed for the use and well being of the Kindergarten children. Three round windows were etched in memory of the above named soldiers. The Dublin Methodist Church Hall extension was opened in 1921.
