Manawatū Roll of Honour 2014 - 2018

This alphabetical list encompasses new research that collates the names of all Manawatū connected deaths during World War I, as can be best ascertained. The list was compiled from Manawatū War Memorials and Rolls of Honour based on the original Manawatū counties in 1914. Supplementary information and verification of names was obtained from the NZ History website, collections of the NZ Society of Genealogists, _“Communities Remember World War One: Memorials of the Manawatū Districts”_ by Peter Olsen and Janet Doyle, newspaper reports, school and electoral rolls, Commonwealth War Graves website and military files of Archives NZ, National Archives of Australia, and National Archives (UK). As can be seen on the list there are questions around some of the entries, e.g. some of the names on memorials have been unable to to be traced and confirmed, there are questions about their connection to Manawatū, etc, but the list has been uploaded in its entirety. ​
