Featherston camp

Page 2 – Featherston camp death register 1915–19

This transcription of the Featherston camp death register (Archives New Zealand, Ref WA 232 22) lists soldiers who died during their four months’ training at Featherston camp (January 1916-November 1918), either at the camp itself or any other place. It also includes men who died while the camp was being built (August 1915-January 1916), camp staff, and those who died there after the war when the camp was a military hospital and prisoner of war camp (November 1918-December 1919). Many, including the nurse Mabel Wishaw, died during the flu pandemic of November 1918.

You can download a spreadsheet with more information from the register about those listed, this will also allow you to sort the information by different fields.  Extra information has been included from Cenotaph, Commonwealth War Graves Commission and PapersPast. Links on a person’s surname generally go to their record on the Cenotaph database. A digital copy of the orignal death register is also available from Archives New Zealand
