The oblong book has a green buckram cover with a thin, gold tooled border and a gold tooled hollow cross at the centre. The opening page bears the badge of the school and a delicate border of foliage in pastel greens over the epitaph "Went the day well?" composed by John Maxwell Edmonds and written in black calligraphy with a rubricated initial. The next page bears a moving tribute in black calligraphy with an illuminated initial in red and blue. The third page bears the title, and each subsequent page bears one name, all in a similar style to the first page. The name pages each bear the name at the centre, the years of school attendance at the top and the service or unit at the foot. The book is displayed in oaken case with a glazed hinged lid and a small plaque is attached to the bookcase immediately below it.
