The marble honour roll commemorates the men and women of the Memorial Church who served in World War One. The roll was originally located in the Memorial Uniting Church, Elizabeth and Brisbane Streets in Hobart.  

A large congregation assembled at the Memorial Church yesterday morning on the occasion of the unveiling of a roll of honour to commemorate the names of those members of the church who served in the great war. Owing to the presence on the roll of the name of the minister of the church (Senior Chaplain H. S. Perkins) the ceremony was conducted by Chaplain Rev. H. A. Overend, B.A. The note of thanksgiving dominated the service throughout, whilst tender reference was made to the memory of those who had made the great sacrifice.

The memorial takes the form of a marble tablet designed and executed by Mr. Charles Watson. The rising sun is carved at its head, and below are inscribed 40 (sic)  names, three of those being those of nurses. The lines of the tablet are of Gothic design, thus being in keeping with the architectural features of the church itself.
The Mercury (Hobart), 20 October 1919.
