It has been wonderful to have people come forward and let us know of their family’s losses.
We now have 700 families who lost more than one child in World War I with an additional family loosing three of their sons.
We are working toward adding them to the Brothers field and updating the lists.
As one of the family members said:
'these deaths could not even be spoken of until the next generation as there was so much pain felt by the siblings.’
A recent book has been published on those families –
Broken Branches, New Zealand families who lost three of more children in the Great War / Josh Scadden / fair Dinkum Publications.
