The hall commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action in World War One. The foundation stone for the hall was laid by the Honourable H. N. Barwell, Attorney-General on 11th February 1920.

Brinkworth Soldiers Memorial. For many years past residents have been dissatisfied with the unfinished appearance of the local public hall. At a public meeting held to form a peace celebration committee on March 5 it was decided to add two rooms with a lobby to the front of the hall, the additions to be named "The Fallen Soldiers' Memorial." The committee, with a view to raising funds, arranged a concert and invited Mr E. W. A. Virgo (returned soldier) to make an appeal.

This resulted in £140 being collected. Mr.Virgo further offered his services for canvassing the district, and up to the present the magnificent sum of £510 is in hand. Promises of material and labor have been made. The committee aims at £700 within six months. If its hopes are realised a fitting and useful memorial should he erected by the end of 1919 in honor of the fallen soldiers.
