Rolls of honour and obituaries

Page 4 – Railways Department Roll of Honour

This Roll of Honour lists 450 men from the Railways Department who died in the First World War. It was originally published in the Appendix to the Journals of the House of Representatives, 1919 and 1920, with some later additions. Military units are given as they appeared in the original roll and are not necessarily the serviceman's final unit.

We have linked each name to that soldier's page on Auckland War Memorial Museum's Cenotaph database (apart from three staff who served with British forces). From this database you can find links to the full service records for each soldier on Archives New Zealand's website. You can also download this roll as a spread sheet. We have linked names to obituary notices in the New Zealand Railway Review where these are available.

* This is Robert Arthur Hislop, believed to be the first New Zealand military fatality of the First World War. A sapper in the North Island Railway Battalion, he died on 19 August 1914 after falling from Parnell bridge while on guard duty six days earlier. Hislop had not enlisted with the NZEF at the time of his death so previously had no Cenotaph record or personnel file. Read more about his case here. It is interesting to note that he was included on the 1919 Railways roll of honour even though he was not added to the official New Zealand Roll of Honour until 2014.

** Added to Railways Department Roll of Honour after 1920
