The Soldiers' Corner: Waikumete Cemetery's general military section since 1918 with Lisa Truttman.

The first municipal soldiers' cemetery in New Zealand, after the area set aside for the deaths from Featherston Camp two years earlier, Waikumete has the second-largest number of military burials after Karori Cemetery in Wellington.

As with the rest of the cemetery, there are stories behind not only the simple layout we see today but in the lives of those who find their final rest today on the clay slopes at West Auckland.

A brief history of how the Soldiers' Corner came to be, and just a few of the tales behind the headstones.

Booking essential. All welcome.
