This memorial is made of polished Queensland maple timber board. It is arranged in seven panelled sections, each framed by intricately carved columns. Across the top is a single panel with the words ‘Haberfield Roll of Honour’. It lists 430 names, including four nursing sisters and 48 men who died. All lettering is in gold.

It was repaired through a World War One Centenary federal grant by International Conservation Services Pty Ltd, and the restored memorial was unveiled by the Ashfield mayor on 27 April 2015.

After its relocation, the memorial remains inside the original 'School of Arts' part of the building, but is now on a different internal, south-facing wall.
