ABOUT THE FIELDS OF REMEMBRANCE TRUST

The Fields of Remembrance Trust was established  in 2012 to honour those who served and died 
for our nation during World War One.

The Trust is made up of the Passchendaele Society, the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services' Association
 New Zealand (RNZRSA) representIng all local RSAs, and the Auckland RSA. It is a registered charity.

One hundred years ago in 1914 - 1918, more than 18,000 New Zealanders were killed. This from a population of barely one million.

 
  Communities throughout New Zealand are creating Fields of Remembrance with personalised white crosses to commemorate their service and sacrifice.

On Armistice Day 11 November 2018 there will be a National Commemoration ceremony comprising a Field of Remembrance of 18,200 White Crosses one for each New Zealander who died.
