The monument commemorates the reign of three monarchs, King George V, King George VI and King Edward VII. The monument was removed from its original site in 1939. 

The memorial lamp was originally unveiled in Bangalow to the memory of King Edward in March 1911. At the unveiling, tributes were paid to King Edward VII  where he was described as "Edward the Peacemaker". The tributes also made mention of his mother the late Queen Victoria. Mr Price of Byron Bay said "the lamp reflected great credit on the people of Bangalow and their feelings of loyalty". He also said that the late King had done much to encourage sport. King Edward died in 1910.
