The information in these records was taken from a memorial commemorating the veterans who fought for the Empire and who died at the Auckland Veterans’ Home. The memorial is located at Waikaraka Cemetery and was unveiled on 26 April 1917. The death years covered in this collection are from 1902 to 1940.
Transcripts provide the following information about your ancestor:
First name(s) – in some cases, only first initials were recorded.
Age at death
Force or regiment
Wendy Leahy supplied these transcripts.
First names were not always spelled out in full. Occasionally, only first initials were included. If searching by your ancestor’s full first name (with variants) is not yielding expected results, try searching by the first letter of your ancestor’s first name instead.
Use the optional keyword field to search by force, regiment, or conflict.
