War Memorials and Honour Boards

This database contains information from a number of sources and will be added to over time. Auckland Council Archives currently houses two WWI-related honour boards in its research room in Central Auckland. One lists those members of the Auckland Mounted Rifles Club who served in WWI; the other is the Borough of Newmarket WWI Roll of Honour Board. In addition, we also hold records regarding war memorials that were erected with some involvement by the former local authorities in the Auckland region, and it is often these memorials that we have chosen to transcribe and make available via this database.

The database contains the following pieces of information transcribed from the memorials: name of soldier and an indication if the soldier was killed whilst in service. Additional research into those listed has also been conducted and this information is displayed where available.

The database is searchable by name of soldier, name of honour board/memorial, and war. Use the Browse button to browse the contents of these fields. The search will return those entries that match your search criteria. Links have been made to photographs from Auckland Council Archives and Libraries' Special Collections Heritage Images Online database. If you click on a serial number, you can view images and further information on a soldier from the Auckland War Memorial Museum's Cenotaph Database. You can also use the references provided to search Archives New Zealand's Archway Database for further information about a particular person. For some entries, there are additional references to other sources of information and online databases.

This database is a full transcript of entries from the war memorials and honour boards. For further information, please contact Auckland Council Archives Central.
