  • Husband of Florence Mabel; father of Henry (Harry) Percival ( born 1902) and Zoe Francis Rowney (born 1912).

    Name is Greenhough. Surname mispelt on the Nominal Rolls, as Greenhaugh.

    Greenhough created the two volume leather-bound Auckland Provincial Roll of Honour for those who registered in the Auckland Province and died in World War One. This Roll of Honour can be viewed in the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

    Rolls of Honour at Auckland Museum
    Auckland War Memorial Museum has many Rolls of Honour in its collection. Auckland War Memorial Museum's Hall of Memories is a physical Roll of Honour - it forms part of the building itself.

    Many organisations have been digitising existing rolls and commemorating service people online. Auckland Museum's Online Cenotaph is an example of a digital Roll of Honour.

    The Auckland Roll of Honour

    In the World War One Sanctuary there are two parchment Rolls of Honour on display. They are housed in two bronze caskets. The Rolls of Honour were handwritten by Major Percival Beaumont Greenhough and include the names of those who died in the "Great War" who registered in the Auckland Province. It includes the regimental number, rank, unit and "honours the next of kin of the fallen".

    Louise Tilsley (1898-1983), a calligraphic artist, created the gold-leafed frontispieces for the books. She was also responsible for creating many illuminated addresses to Returned Servicemen. Mrs Tilsley was wife of Lieut. Col. Robert Tilsley, M.C., D.C.M.

    The caskets were designed and cast by local sculptor Richard Oliver Gross (1882-1963).
    Gross was a leading figure in the Auckland arts community and "made a major contribution to public sculpture in New Zealand between the wars" (Jock Phillips, Te Ara). His other works include the stone frieze that wraps around the Museum building and the bronze statue, 'The Athlete', on the Domain Gates.

    Auckland Museum's Documentary Heritage Collection holds the business records of the Auckland Provincial Roll of Honour Committee. This collection includes receipts and correspondence to Greenhough, Tilsley and Gross as well as correspondence between the committee and the Museum's Institute for the purchase of the volumes."
