The honour roll commemorates employees of the butter factory who served in World War One.

Newstead Butter Factory.
The local butter factory still continues to turn out a good quantity of butter, despite the dry season. Cream is received here from the farthest towns in the mallee. The new factory is nearly completed.
HONOR ROLL.
An honor roll of Harcourt granite has been built into the wall of the Building, and it bears the names of fourteen men who were employed in the factory prior to enlistment. Eight of them laid down their lives.
