Stratford Hall of Remembrance

Opened 3 May 1920 by Edward , Prince of Wales

The servicemen's portraits in the Hall of Remembrance were extensively conserved in 2000 and some of the original positioning was restored where possible. Puke Ariki holds large format copy negatives of all the portraits.

The bronze plaque acknowledging the unveiling was installed in August 1920 (See Taranaki Daily News 13 Aug 1920)

"This Roll of Honor to the men of the Stratford District who made the supreme sacrifice in the Great War, 1914-19, was graciously unveiled by H.R.H. Edward, Prince of Wales, on his visit to Stratford, May 3rd, 1920."
