Online Cenotaph is a comprehensive online hub for stories of New Zealand service personnel; Containing the records of approximately 140,000 men and women who served for New Zealand from the 19th Century through to today, Auckland Museum is requesting the help of communities throughout New Zealand to enhance these records further.
Contribute to Online Cenotaph in your community
He Pou Aroha Community Cenotaph provides portable digital access to Online Cenotaph using innovative purpose-built digitisation kiosks. The digitisation kiosks allow you to search Online Cenotaph, lay a virtual poppy against a specific person's name and contribute additional information to the database.
Each kiosk contains an object photo booth that enables you to digitise your family's war related items such as medals, diaries, letters and more. The digitised objects are uploaded to the relevant service person's Online Cenotaph record for the world to see and future generations to remember.
