Twyford Hall Memorial
Merimbula, NSW, Australia

Twyford Hall, whose foundation stone was laid in 1931 by Joseph William Twyford (1854 - 1933), after his gifting of the land for the establishment of a community centre for the people of Merimbula.  A Memorial Porch was added a short time later, the funds having been donated by Sarah Twyford (1860 - 1938), second wife of Joseph, as a memorial in remembrance of the soldiers of Merimbula who served during the Great War (WW1) and whose names are listed in a stone tablet set into the Hall's wall on Market Street, Merimbula.

Two additional tablets were later added listing those who served during World War II, also set into the wall on Market Street, possibly around the same time as the adjoining Soldiers Memorial Wing was added to the Hall.
