Description / Background

St Andrew's Anglican Church in Tarago, NSW, was built on a new site as a memorial to honour the soldiers who fell in the First World War. The land was donated by Mr G E Reynolds and the building was designed by Messrs. Manfred and Sons. The construction cost £1,000.

The foundation stone of the church is a marble plaque with black incised lettering, mounted on a concrete backing. It is set in the brick foundation of the church. The stone was laid by the Archdeacon of Goulburn, Ven. Joseph Pike, on 31 October 1931.

The Goulburn Evening Penny Post on 30 October 1931 advertised the laying of the foundation stone and announced that the clergy and congregations of neighbouring parishes were invited to attend.

The church was consecrated on 27 August 1932 by Bishop Lewis Radford.
