Get involved at Auckland Domain
At the Auckland War Memorial Museum
You can get involved and contribute to Auckland's First World War commemorations through Auckland War Memorial Museum.
Visit a war memorial gallery, attend a memorial event, or share and contribute to the Online Cenotaph records.
The building itself, a post war project, was built as a result of local fundraising, local and central government contributions.
The neo-classical design of the building was the winning submission of a design competition from the architectural firm Grierson, Aimer and Darffin, who were all WWI veterans.

Waikumete Cemetery influenza pandemic commemoration service
You can join us for a commemorative service marking the 100th anniversary of the worldwide Influenza Pandemic.
Following the end of the First World War the influenza pandemic arrived in Auckland.
The disease, brought back by servicemen returning home, resulted in the death of over 1,680 people in Auckland (over 8,000 nationally). A third of those who died in Auckland were buried at Waikumete Cemetery between October and December 1918.
Come along and learn how Auckland coped with the pandemic.
|When:||11am, 30 September 2018|
Waikumete Cemetery, 4128A Great North Rd gate entrance
There is a memorial located on the grass berm adjacent to the Anglican E section. However, most graves for influenza victims are not marked, with plots spread throughout the old part of the cemetery.
What would happen today?
An Influenza Pandemic is on the current risk register of Auckland Emergency Management.
