Rolls of honour and obituaries

Page 2 – Public Service Roll of Honour

This Roll of Honour lists 218 men from the core Public Service who died in the First World War. It was originally published in the New Zealand Gazette on 29 April 1920. We have linked each name to that soldier's page on Auckland War Memorial Museum's Cenotaph database. From this database you can also find links to the full service records for each soldier on Archives New Zealand's website. We have not yet been able to find three names on Cenotaph (M. McCauley, A. McNeil and W. Robinson). If you can help us identify these men, please email info@nzhistory.net.nz

Available to download: pdf of original NZ Gazette notice and a sortable spreadsheet of this roll.
