In All Saints' Church, Kingston Seymour, Somerset. His birth would seem to have been registered in the second quarter of 1873, making his age at death 27, not 28.
.
Although resident in Brighton, his name doesn't appear to be on a memorial there.

....“There was a large attendance at the church on Sunday afternoon, at the unveiling of the tablet to the memory of Sydney John Hale of the Grenadier Guards, who lost his life in Africa. Special hymns were sung at the service, at which the Rev Preb. H. Vaughan, R.D., gave an address. Colonel W. Long, C.M.G., unveiled the tablet, which is in the form of a marble shield, set in Mangotsfield red stone, with the crest of the Grenadier Guards in alabaster. The 2nd Wessex Royal Engineers (Clevedon and Weston), under Captain J. F. Keen, Captain Fry, Lieutenants Lockett and Butterill, were present. Headed by their brass and fife and drum bands, they afterwards marched back to the railway, and were entertained to tea at the coffee house by Mrs Livingstone Ogilvy, the lady who had the memorial erected.

"marched back to the railway" presumably means they marched to Yatton railway station, that being the nearest station to Kingston Seymour, and trains ran to both Clevedon and Weston-super-Mare from Yatton. There's a Railway Inn at Yatton, but the report says they went to a coffee house.

Mrs Annie Isabella Livingstone Ogilvy (c.1851-1924) was also connected with the ABW peace memorial (1903) at Clevedon, on which Sydney Hale (as Sidney) is named.
