The memorial is inside the entrance to Joll Park and alongside is a marble bust of Thomas L Joll, the local dairy factory founder.

"At a meeting at Okaiawa on Friday evening, it was decided to erect a monument in Joll Park as a memorial to the fallen soldiers of the district. Close on £200 has already been collected, and steps will be taken to at once proceed with the erection, a committee being set up to interview the Park Committee in regard to a site."
