War Memorial Centre

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

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 (Mathew 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)
