Otago provincial war memorial

Andersons Bay Andersons Bay Andersons Bay

Otago provincial war memorial in Anderson's Bay cemetery. It lists the names of military personnel from the district who died during the First and Second World Wars and who have no known grave.

Shortly after the First World War the government decided to build four provincial memorials for those 'denied a known and honoured grave'. The Wellington memorial was built in 1930 or 1931, though the Depression and Second World War meant that work on the Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin memorials was delayed until the 1960s. Many of the men listed on the memorial died at sea, including some who died of influenza during the 1918 pandemic.
