I wasn't sure where to post this cause if I remember correctly it's against the rules to demand a translation without posting your own attempt. However, I don't know the vocabulary for the translation I seek (in latin). So possibly if someone with that knowledge could lend a minute or two to give me a suggestion, it would be most appreciated.

I'm trying to translate "Hall of the fallen" or "Passageway of the fallen" into latin.

A rough attempt: atrium casorum. The best rendition depends on your context. I assume you are thinking of a place where the dead, those who fell (in war?) are honoured. If I remember correctly the Romans used the atrium for this and they kept wax masks of the dead there.
