Otago provincial war memorial

Andersons Bay Andersons Bay Andersons Bay

Otago provincial war memorial in Anderson's Bay cemetery, Dunedin. It lists the names of personnel from the Otago Military District who died during the First and Second World Wars and have no known grave.

Shortly after the First World War the government decided to build four provincial memorials for those 'denied a known and honoured grave'. The Wellington memorial was built in 1930 or 1931, but work on the Auckland, Christchurch and Dunedin memorials was delayed until the 1960s by the Depression and Second World War. Many of the men listed on this memorial died at sea, including some who succumbed to influenza during the 1918 pandemic.
