The construction of a residence for the Sexton in 1892 was long overdue. The founding trustees in 1855 ambitiously foresaw the need for such a residence but for government intransigence were they left disappointed. The English Domestic Revival (Queen Anne) styled building was designed by the noted architect Percy Oakden (q.v.) at a cost of £694; the office, boardroom and strongroom were later added in 1929 for an additional £1,144 then finally the service wing, wash house and brick kitchen the following year for £797.
