The monument was originally erected to commemorate those from the district who died in service or were killed in action in World War One. The names of those who died in service or were killed in action in World War Two were added at a later date. 

An additional plaque was placed behind the memorial to commemorate a soldier from the district who lost his life in the Korean War. The rosemary hedge was planted behind the memorial to commemorate the burial of the Unknown Australian Soldier at Canberra on the 11th November 1993. 

The Wanneroo War Memorial was originally unveiled on the 3rd September 1921 by Mr. H.P Colebatch, Minister for Education in front of the local Post Office on Wanneroo Road. Of the 23 men who enlisted from the Wanneroo District nine men fell and they are honoured on the memorial.
