Nationwide

Welcome to the New Zealand Remembrance Army - War Graves and Memorials Appeal.

‘At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them’. Thanks to the New Zealand Remembrance Army – Te Taua Manaaki o Ngā Morehu (NZRA) these are words taking on renewed significance.

Across Aotearoa New Zealand, our teams are honouring the sacrifice of those who served by returning dignity to their graves. Our vision is to have every service grave pristine, every service contribution remembered.

By donating to the New Zealand Remembrance Army you’re helping us to respectfully clean, restore and preserve headstones that symbolise the memory of our service men and women for future generations to pay their respects.

We are seeking donations to provide service people with unmarked graves a headstone. In cemeteries around New Zealand there are potentially hundreds of soldiers in unmarked graves that lack a headstone indicating who is buried there.

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

For the NZRA, remembrance is not just on ANZAC Day - its every day. The ode from For the Fallen sees renewed meaning through our work. Because no one that served should face the indignity of an unreadable grave, in an ill maintained cemetery, forgotten by time and compliancy.

More about us

The New Zealand Remembrance Army is a charitable trust set up to foster volunteer groups across New Zealand to restore service headstones and memorials. All restoration is done freely and volunteers carry out the work in their local communities.
