Memorial Cottage was the name given to the Sister Kate's Children's Cottage home during its wartime evacuation to Roleystone in the Darling Ranges outside Perth. This cottage was purchased with funds donated from England in memory of Archdeacon Lefroy, hence the name 'Memorial Cottage'. After a couple of years, the children and staff moved back to Queen's Park.
