Field of Remembrance for ANZAC Day 2017


The Field of Remembrance Trust has created a field of white crosses in the Auckland Domain in front of the Auckland War Memorial Museum. The 2015 Field was established in the Auckland Domain with 814 named crosses commemorating the men and women from the Auckland region who died in 1915. In 2016 a further 857 crosses were added named for the men who died in 1916. 

In 2017 another 1146 crosses have been added. Twenty four Remuera names were found with a cross: others may be included but the crosses are not placed alphabetically by surname or numerically by enlistment number, making it difficult to locate a particular serviceman or woman.
