Taita Cemetery - War Graves

The Ministry for Culture and Heritage as agent for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC), looks after four WWI and 20 WWII True War Graves in Taita Cemetery.
To be recognised as a True War Grave, the person whose remains lie there would have died in active service between

4 August 1914 - 31 August 1921 (WWI), or
3 September 1939 - 31 December 1947 (WWII).

Those buried in NZ True War Graves would have died here having returned from the Front to NZ either wounded or sick, though some would have died while in training.
