Who was Nellie Payne?

Altar carved as a memorial to the Great War, St Raphael’s, Fern Tree, Hobart


There is no absolute evidence that this altar was carved by Nellie Payne. However it is definitely in her style and she did carve the prayer stall for Agnes Mault (DB22) in the same church, and also carved pieces for All Saints Church in South Hobart which is St Raphael’s parent church.
