Plaque commemorates Stanley Carlton Taunton who was a parishioner and builder of the church.

The new All Saints Church, incorporating the stone elements of the former Rookwood Cemetery railway station, was designed by W Pierce and involved the transport and reassembling of 787 tons of stone. The builder, Stan Taunton, spent much time on site at Rookwood making section drawings of the railway station, supervising demolition of the building and numbering each stone block before transporting them to Canberra by semi-trailer.
