The monument was erected by the staff to commemorate the men from the Tempe Tramway Depot who had died in service or were killed in action during World War One. 

This monument was unveiled at the Tempe Tramway Depot on Sunday by Brigadier-General Lee in memory of the men from that depot who have fallen in the war. The General said that 89 from the depot had enlisted, and eight of them had paid the supreme sacrifice. The tramway service had contributed 1157 men to the Australian army; 139 had either been killed or were missing.
