The entrance to the former All Saints Church commemorates Henry Croaker who was a leader in church activities.

Mr. Henry Croaker, one of the best-known residents of the Lower Hunter, died on Sunday at Woodville. Mr. Croaker, who was aged 71 years, was a native of the Manning district. He came to Woodville 60 years ago. He controlled Woodville estate, and was a practical farmer. He took great interest in breeding Ayrshire cattle, and his stock won many prizes at local and other shows. He showed great interest in the H. R. Association, and was a member of various committees, and was the second oldest trustee. He was also a keen supporter of the butter factory. He was one of the oldest members of the Church of England synod, and as lay secretary to the synod discharged his duties with remarkable ability. He was for 50 years lay preacher, and conducted his first service at Woodville at the age of 21. He leaves a widow and five children.
