The roll contains the names of 37 soldiers and was unveiled at the Mechanics Institute by Mr Barnes, Minister of Railways. Several of the soldiers won distinctions and 13 were killed.

The roll is normally located in the Cowwarr Public Hall, but is currently on loan (2016) to the Cowwarr Primary School while renovations are being carried out at the hall.
