CENOTAPH DATABASE - The Cenotaph Database, operated by the Auckland Museum is a database of over 33,000 New Zealanders who served in war and conflict from the South African War to the present day, and who are now deceased. It is primarily a roll of honour of those who died as a result of war service, but also includes some personnel who have died since. Our end plan is to include all New Zealanders who served in all 19th and 20th century wars, but the immediate goal is to build on the records of those who died, especially those from the Auckland region and regiments.
