Historical Information

Trentham Camp was the first of the New Zealand Reinforcement Camps; it ultimately contained accommodation for 4,500 men in huts, and 2,000 under canvas. In January, 1916, it became the training ground for Infantry, and Engineers in particular. The Remount Depot was at Upper Hutt, near Trentham. Burials from these camps were carried out mainly at Karori Public Cemetery, Wellington.

There are 3 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-1918 war and 2 of the 1939-1945 war here.
