Description / Background

The carillon of Strathfield Uniting Church can be heard each Sunday morning at 9.25 am. A plaque attached lists the names of those members of Strathfield Methodist Church who died during the Second World War. Their names along with the names of others who served, and details of their service, are listed in a book kept below the plaque.
