  • APPEAL FOR RELATIVES - 17 MARCH 2021

    Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture and Heritage is the New Zealand agent for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC). As agents for CWGC we are responsible for graves of personnel who died between 4 August 1914 and 31 August 1921 and 3 September 1939 and 31 December 1947.

    Private Rangi Tiaure has an official Commonwealth War Grave. Private Rangi Tiaure was added the Commonwealth War Graves New Zealand Roll of Honour in late 2019. We wish to discuss maintenance we would like to undertake on his grave.

    If you are connected to Private Rangi Tiaure please email us at info@mch.govt.nz so we can discuss our proposed plans.
