Thanks for this Linda. Also, we provide a Roll of Honour for Niuean troops who were killed here:

James Cowan's book "Maori in the Great War" originally published 1926 - republished 2011 lists the rolls of Maori who went to war 1914-1918, including the men from Niue (B company) page 190-194. He then lists the roll of honour 241-252. If you look at there is information on researching solders personel files and a link to archway at archives - go there and enter name of soldier to see digitalised personnel record (try Fanavai). Also helpful to try Cenotaph database at Auckland War Museum - advanced search - enter Niue - limit to World War 1 and search.
