The honour roll commemorates former students of the school and those from the district who served in World War One.  The centre panels display the names of those who died in service or were killed in action.

A most impressive ceremony took place at the State School, Cambridge, on Saturday afternoon in the unveiling of an honour roll in memory of the young men of Cambridge, chiefly ex-students of the Cambridge State School who enlisted for active service. The unveiling service was carried out by the Director of Education, Mr W.T. McCoy. The board is made of blackwood in three panels.
The Mercury (Hobart), 16th June 1919.

Note : the “Tasmanian War Memorials Data Base” , compiled by Fred Thornett which is located at the State Library of Tasmania, contains a comprehensive listing of the names on this honour roll.
