The Glebe Town Hall honour roll is a cedar panel with a central brass plaque surmounted with an impressed copper armorial of the British Royal Coat of Arms flanked by a pair of arch crested copper pillars, each titled: Roll of Honour. Each pillar is impressed with the dates '1914' and '1919'. Below the dates are impressed panels containing crossed swords over laurel wreaths and a field artillery piece, supported on a bracket impressed with a NSW crest piece, supported on a cartouche and acanthus scrolls.
