Wellington provincial war memorial

The Wellington provincial war memorial in Karori Cemetery lists men from the Wellington Military District who died in the First and Second World Wars and 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, but the Depression and Second World War delayed work on the Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin memorials until the 1960s. Most of the men listed on the Wellington memorial died at sea, including many who succumbed to influenza during the 1918 pandemic.
