  Nationwide

The New Zealand Remembrance Army is a charitable trust set up to foster volunteer groups across New Zealand to restore the headstones and memorials to our service men and women to a high national standard.

Thanks to product sponsorship from Bio-Shield, Resene Paints and Topflite, all restoration is free and volunteers carry out the work within their local communities. We also work in conjunction with the Returned Services Association NZ, veterans and other community groups.

There are over 350,000 estimated service graves in New Zealand. Many of these sit uncared for in public cemeteries.

The New Zealand Remembrance Army has one vision, to see all service headstones and family memorials cared for, wherever they may lie. In its first year, our army of volunteers is already transforming cemetery sites all over New Zealand.

We have completed an estimated 12,000 service headstones and family memorials and we have around 3,500 volunteers across New Zealand nationwide.

Local Councils and Veteran Affairs have no mandate to restore any unmaintained graves and often families are no longer able to look after these final resting places themselves.

When you walk past these graves it becomes clear that these men and women have been forgotten. The New Zealand Remembrance Army is committed to fixing this problem.

By donating to the New Zealand Remembrance Army you will be helping to respectfully preserve their memory for future Kiwis to pay their respects - Lest We Forget.
