The bells of this Cathedral Church of St. Nicholas were rung today as part of “Ringing to Remember” – the Durham & Newcastle Association of Church Bellringers First World War ringing commemoration. On this day one hundred years ago a bellringer from the Church of St. Aidan at Bamburgh was killed. We rang to celebrate his life and the ultimate sacrifice that he made.
Private William Hall
William was the son of Robert and Elizabeth Hall of Bamburgh. Three of their Sons emigrated to Australia. When war broke out they all enlisted at Jarrahdale, a major timber production area, South of Perth. William, who worked in the mill, joined the 28th.Bn. Australian Infantry on 8/3/1916 and he was killed in action at Pashendale on 20/9/1917 aged 37. He is remembered on the Menin Gate Memorial, and at the memorial in the town of Jarrahdale, Australia.
