The hall was built in 1922 as a church hall and dedicated as a memorial to the Australian, particularly local soldiers, who died in service or were killed in action in World War One.

The Governor-General, who was accompanied by Lady Forster, laid the foundatlon stone of a war memorial hall at St. Thomas' Church of England at North Sydney on Saturday afternoon.  The Rev. H.N. Baker, M.A., informed his Excellency that great numbers had gone to the war from the parish including a former rector, the Rev.Horace Crotty, and 100 had died, among them the curate, the Rev. W.L. Ford who was killed at Jutland.  The new hall will cost about £5500, and the memorial vestibule £500 more. About £1600 had been collected towards the cost during the past 12 months.
