Description

Lismore Memorial Baths were erected in honour of those who fell in the First World War. The foundation stone was laid on 1 October 1927.

Inside the main entrance to the baths are two marble wall mounted honour rolls listing the names of the fallen from Lismore and district. Collection of the names began around 1928.

Their status codes have been given as killed in action (KIA), as that is what is indicated by the memorial.

  • A R Pavey may be Arthur Richard Pavey who was KIA.
  • F X Walsh may be Francis Xavier Walsh who DOW.
