Napier's War Memorials

Napier and its people have a proud history of honouring those who’ve passed away fighting for our freedom. ANZAC Day service turnouts are testament to this sentiment and so are our war memorial monuments, located throughout Napier as memorials of our forebears.

Cenotaph War Memorial Napier.The building and the ceremonial memorial, next to Mothers Rest across from Clive Square, were both erected in commemoration of the human sacrifices in the First World War. Later dedications honour participants in other wars.

Picture of the Roll of Honour at the War Memorial Conference Centre.Inscription

Located on Marine Parade.

The original War Memorial Hall was built by public subscription in 1956 in memory of those who lost their lives in the Second World War conflict. It was renovated and enlarged by the Napier City Council in 1995 to continue as a living, working memorial, befitting those Napier Citizens who served and died in this century's conflicts.

Originally, the Roll of Honour included only the names of those who lost their lives in the Second World War, who resided in the Napier Borough. The City now has wider boundaries, and three additional plaques now record the names of those from the wider Napier City area, from Bay View to Meeanee and Taradale. As the city's permanent inscription of World War I losses was destroyed in the 1931 Earthquake, the new upper tier of names has been added. Another plaque records those who died in the post World War II conflicts.

This extended Roll of Honour was re-dedicated on 30th September 1995 at the facility's reopening as the War Memorial Centre, in the 50th year since the end of World War II.

The creation of this new and complete Roll of Honour was a joint project between the Napier City Council and the Napier and Taradale Returned Services Association, assisted by grant allocation from the New Zealand Remembers fund.

The bicultural dedication service was conducted by the Napier Council of Churches, attended by the Seventh Battalion (Wellington (City of Wellington's Own) and Hawke's Bay) Regiment Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment.

Regrettably, due to the disrepair that the Hall had fallen into, the Memorial Eternal Flame was extinguished many years ago. At the rededication ceremony, the Eternal Flame was relit by Napier's oldest soldier, World War I Veteran and former Mayor, Mr E.R. (Ron) Spriggs M.B.E.

May future generations ensure that the eternal flame is never again extinguished.

VJ Day 15 August 1995 - The 50th anniversary of the end of World War II 1939-45: In tribute to all those who served New Zealand overseas and at home throughout those years and in memory of those who laid down their lives.

VE Day 9 May 1995 - The 50th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe 1939-45: In tribute to those who served and in memory of those who gave their lives.

In grateful memory of those who died in war and those who suffer as a result of war. May our respect for all who made such sacrifices strengthen our determination to achieve a world of peace, based on peace and justice for all.

Blessed are the peace makers (Matthew 5:9)

He tohu whakamaratanga ki nga hoia i hinga ki te pai o Tumatauenga E mihi ana hoki ki te hunga i raru i aua pakanga Ma tenei ahuatanga o ratou e tauira ki nga whakataupuranga e whai ake nei, kia kaua e warewaretia te kaupapa i hingi ai ratou ara te rangimarie kia horapa ki te ao katoa.

Ka koa te hunga hohou rongo (Matiu 5:9)

South African War Memorial on Marine Parade.

Marble and Bluestone.



This memorial was unveiled by Lord Plunkett K.C.V.O. Governor of the Colony, 10 February 1906.

Committee: S Carnell. Mayor, M N Bower. Town Clerk, C H Edwards. A E Eagleton. Hon Secretary Clerk

These tablets were erected by the people of Hawke's Bay to commemorate the part taken by troopers from this District in the South African War 1899-1902, and as a tribute to patriotism shown by them in offering their services in the empire's cause.

This monument was shattered by earthquake in February 1931 and was re-erected by citizens of Napier in February 1947.
