A plaque commemorates Benjamin Francis Brazier, Rector of the parish from 1925 to 1930.

The death occurred on Thuisday night, after a sudden heart attack, of the Rev. Benjamin Francis Brazier, vicar of the parish of Wilston. The deceased, who is survived by his widow and two daughters came to Australia from Wolverhampton (England), and commenced work in New South Wales. Later he came to Brisbane as curate at St Andrews, South Brisbane, from whence he went as chaplain to Norfolk Island. He returned to Brisbane, and became curate at All Saints. He next went as rector to Gatton, and later took over the parish of Wilston. Although of a quiet and retiring nature he had won his way into the deep-rooted and lasting affections of his parishioners. The Church of St Alban the Martyr, at Wilston, stands as a memorial to his tireless zeal in the service of his Church.
