Alfred Luttrell was a member of the General Committee for the Tasmanian Exhibition 1891-92 and official architect. He drew the plans of the Albert Hall for general distribution and designed the annexes and the ticket office.

His architecture firm in Launceston later included his brother Sidney (born 1872) and the two brothers moved to Christchurch New Zealand in the early 1900s where they were responsible for a number of notable buildings.

Ellen Luttrell died in New Zealand on 8 Aug 1911.
