Category:Memorial Dining Room, Christ's College

The Memorial Dining Room is part of Christ's College at 33 Rolleston Ave, Christchurch. New Zealand Historic Places Trust Category I; register number: 3276

The dining room at Christ's College was designed by Cecil Wood (1878–1947), a noted Christchurch architect, who had a long association with the college. Designed as a memorial to the Old Boys of the college who served in the First World War, it was built in 1925. Of the former pupils and masters of Christ's College who had served in World War I, 44 percent had been killed or injured. Numerous World War I memorials were erected by New Zealand schools, particularly by the large boys' schools. Such memorials were often elaborate and costly structures, with the Christ's College Memorial Dining Room costing more than twice that of the Bridge of Remembrance, one of Christchurch's major World War I memorials.
