Roll of Honour Auckland Province 1914-1918

The Auckland Province Roll of Honour for WWI is an alphabetical list of those service personnel from the Auckland Province who died during, or as a result of injuries caused by, World War I.  The two parchment Rolls of Honour are on permanent display in the World War One Sanctuary at the Auckland War Memorial Museum, Auckland, New Zealand and duplicate the names held on the walls.

The Roll contains an alphabetical list of service personnel, including regimental number, rank, honours, unit and next-of-kin. The original Roll of Honour was handwritten on parchment by 2/832 Major Percival Beaumont Greenhough and then bound into two volumes.

The illuminated frontispieces were created using gold leaf by Louise Tilsley, and the bronze caskets the volumes are currently displayed in were created by English-born sculptor, Richard Oliver Gross.

The Roll was purchased in 1934 by the Auckland Institute and Museum from the Auckland Provincial Roll of Honour Committee.

This Manuscript has been transcribed and matched against  the Online Cenotaph database part of Auckland War Memorial Museum and includes 7,289 entries.

60 entries have not been matched including those who are unverifiable and/or have been listed as part of the Gisborne, Ngaruawahia and Opotiki Lists. Within this list there are examples of New Zealand personnel who served but did not die as a result of their service including Lieut. David F. Scott who died in the Solomon Islands during 1930. Or Frank Charles Roche (58360, 619520) who died in 1980 but is listed in the Roll. This means that some individuals are out of scope and not included in Online Cenotaph while other names are unverified. Note that 18 names are duplicated.

The Roll (MS-2016-2) was digitised in 2013 and transcribed by Auckland War Memorial Museum volunteers in 2020.

The full dataset can be found on Zenodo.
