We have a little information on William John Merrell.. He entered Moore College in 1943 at the age of 21 years. He graduated in 1945 with a Licentiate in Theology (ThL). The admitting principal at that time was T.C. Hammond.William was ordained deacon by the Archbishop of Sydney on 10 March 1946 and priested on 21 December 1946. His ministry on exit from Moore College was at St Anne’s Anglican Church at Ryde

Thank you Albert Richard Merrell for your enquiry regarding your late uncle Rev William John Merrell.  The only information I am able to find regarding William is that he was at St Annes Church Ryde between 1946-47 serving probably as either a Catechist or Curate

Information obtained from Moore College Sydney

Some time after the death of Maude Constance Gladys (williams mother) he and his bros Albert Stanley and Ronald Gordon were sent to Roylson boys home in Glebe, I do not know where their sister Dulcie went. However it seems that some family took William in, so he got an education and later went to Moore College.
