Bishop Short brought with him funds from England to buy land and to build the Cathedral. The Cathedral was built in sections as money became available. Some well-known Adelaide people, including Robert Barr Smith, Sir Thomas Elder, Sims, Sir John Bonython, Mortlock and Pope were very generous in their contribution to the building of the remaining sections of the Cathedral. In the late 20th century Mrs Colleen Beinl and Santos have been very generous benefactors to the Cathedral.
