The New Zealand Remembrance Army is a Trust set up to foster volunteer groups across New Zealand to remember and restore service headstones and memorials. All restoration is free for families and volunteers carry out the work within their local communities. We work in conjunction with the RSA and other veteran groups.
The New Zealand Remembrance Army has one vision. To see our service personnel's graves cared for, wherever they may lie. Our army of volunteers is transforming cemetery sites all over New Zealand.
The New Zealand Remembrance Army have already completed over 7000 service graves and we have 35 coordinators and 2000 volunteers established in 40 regions nationwide.
There are over 350,000 service graves in New Zealand. Many of these sit unmaintained in public cemeteries. Local Councils and Veteran Affairs have no mandate to restore any unmaintained graves and often families are no longer able to look after these service memorials themselves. When you walk past these graves it becomes obvious these servicemen and women have simply 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.
***Please note we are pending Charitable Trust status***
