The Cardwell War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.

An additional marble plaque was added at a later date to commemorate the fallen of World War Two. Additional commemorative plaques have been added to the memorial since 1989 with the plaque paying tribute to those who served in South East Asia campaigns being unveiled on ANZAC Day 1989.
