The bells at Bamburgh 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 Bamburgh Church 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 which is South of Perth. William 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.
William Hall we have remembered you
