Welcome


The Auckland War Memorial Museum’s Armoury Information Centre, provides a rich resource for the study of New Zealand’s military history.

The main research tool provided by the Museum is its Cenotaph Database. The Cenotaph Database contains biographical records and some photos for over 135,000 deceased New Zealanders, many of whom gave their lives as a result of war. Although the main focus is World War One, there are entries for men and women who served in South Africa in the 19th century, through the First and Second World Wars to Korea, Malaya and Vietnam in the 1950s to 1970s, and even recent peacekeeping deployments.

In addition, the Armoury staff can assist with further reasearch using a wide range of other resources that are available. This site is a consolidation of the internet resources available and provides an associated methodology for researching individuals who served in specific services and conflicts.

To use this resource, follow the methodology defined for each conflict and service. Each step will often provide information required for the next step.

Enjoy, and please “give back” by posting a blog of a website that should be added to this resource. In this way the value of the repository will increase.

Thanks and Enjoy !!

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a
    blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit
    the nail on the head. The issue is something which
    too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something relating to
    this.

  2. Everything is very open with a very clear clarification of the issues.

    It was definitely informative. Your site is extremely helpful.

    Thank you for sharing!
