  • Edwin and Manfred Kupli
    Born 18 October 1878 Edwin and his brother Manfred had emigrated to New Zealand 12 years before Edwin was conscripted in January 1917. Edwin had served for 3 years in the London Rifle brigade before emigrating to New Zealand. The brothers ran a furniture manufacturing and retailing business in Manners St. When Edwin was conscripted Manfred decide to volunteer and they closed down the business.

    Both he and his brother left for France at the same time while Edwin was injured on 3rd February 1918 and returned home in July 1918. His brother was Killed in Action. After the war Edwin did not return to the furniture trade but found a job with the pensions department.

  • Manfred Alphonse Kupli (11 JUL 1876 - 29 MAR 1918)

    We stumbled across his name by chance when visiting the Field of Remembrance crosses commemorating WW1 casualties at the Wellington Botanic Gardens in 2018.
    Due to the uncommon surname we wondered if he might be related to my wife's Godmother Noeline Kupli.
    We set about researching the genealogy of both Manfred , and Noeline to establish whether they were related, and have been delighted to establish that they are uncle and niece.

    To our knowledge Manfred has no living relatives, so we have taken it upon ourselves to remember his contribution in the ultimate sacrifice for his adopted country.

    Manfred was born in London, England to Swiss parents.

    We have established the connection between Manfred and his niece just in time for ANZAC Day 1919, which is just over 101 years since he was killed in action in the Somme.

    Lest we forget.
