The marble honour roll commemorates those who served in World War One. The roll was unveiled at the opening of the Memorial Hall. 

The war memorial for Long Plains and district has taken the form of a public hall. Plans and specifications were prepared by Messrs. Rogers and Jefferis and it was unanimously agreed to do the work by day labor. The opening celebrations were begun on Sunday, October 21, when a commemoration service was held, and despite the unpleasant weather, a record gathering resulted.  Brigadier-General S. Price Weir D.S.O., V.D., unveiled a beautiful marble honor roll, and the photographs of four fallen soldiers.
