Wellington Field of Remembrance
A Field of Remembrance is established in the Botanic Gardens each ANZAC Day. The crosses are provided by the Trust and bear the names of the men of the Wellington Regiments. Every effort has been made to identify men from the wider Wellington region who served in other specialist units e.g. the Machine Gunners and include those who served in overseas forces i.e Australian and Great britain. The numbers have increased progressively each year as the men who died one hundred years ago are added to the Field.
Visit the Community Fields of Remembrance in the Wellington Region
The Wellington military district included New Plymouth, Hawkes Bay, the Manawatu and the Wairarapa. Communities from these regions are establishing Fields of Remembrance honouring those who never returned from the First World War. The major regional field is placed in the Welington Botanic Gardens each ANZAC Day. Schools are also establishing a Field or joining with their community.
