The memorial obelisk was erected in honour of the 142 men who enlisted from the district for service in the Great War and in memory of 22 of them who were killed at the front.

The Roebourne War Memorial was unveiled on the 13th May 1920 during the visit of the Governor of Western Australia to the town. The Governor took part in the ceremony although the memorial was unveiled by the mother one of the soldiers killed .
