The memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One. A marble tablet was added to the memorial at a later date to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War Two.

A loyal demonstration took place at Yandina on the 7th June 1924, on the occasion of the visit of Senator Sir Wm. Glasgow to unveil and dedicate a memorial in honour of those who paid the supreme sacrifice in the war. This memorial was subscribed for by residents of Yandina and district and the gathering was the largest ever seen in Yandina.  Sir William Glasgow was met on arrival at the railway station by Mr J McNab, the citizens of Yandina, and members of the Returned Soldiers' League.   Sir William Glasgow then unveiled the memorial saying "This stone is in memory of the dead, to commemorate the deeds of the living, and to remind us of the duty to King and Empire."
The Brisbane Courier, 9th June 1924.
