To commemorate the centenary of the First World War, Auckland Council Archives has developed this exhibition and timeline featuring material from the Council Archives collections. In addition, our volunteers have transcribed and researched the names from several WWI memorials and rolls of honour from across the Auckland region and these are available here to search. Please use the tabs on the panel to the left to navigate and explore these resources.

About the exhibition

This exhibition contains images and descriptions of records held in the Auckland Council Archives that portray council activities during and after the war, including involvement in relief funds, provisions for returned soldiers, commemorative events and the construction and placement of war memorials.
