Tunnelling Company Memorial
The Tunnelling Company Memorial project is well underway. Official dedication of the memorial will take place on Friday 22 January 2016. We have raised most of the money required and construction is ongoing. You can follow progress here.

Tunnelling Company descendant and supporter sponsorship is now requested. A donation of any size would assist with our plans to deliver both a fitting Tunnelling Company memorial as well as a memorable event. Contributions over $500 will be acknowledged on a sponsor's panel in the memorial area.

Call for Remembrance Rocks for the Tunnelling Company Memorial Wall.

'Your children shall ask their fathers in time to come, what mean these stones.' Joshua 4.21.

New Zealand places associated with the Arras caverns were asked to participate in the NZETC Memorial Wall Project. We now have rocks from all over New Zealand, from places which have names on Arras cavern walls, from families who have ancestors who were Tunnellers, and from towns and districts where Tunnellers enlisted.

We have received over 50 rocks and plaques. Construction of the Memorial Wall has started. Thanks to the mayors, councils and their staff members who have gone out of their way to assist with this project. Special thanks also to groups, families and individuals who have contributed. Also making up part of the wall will be old mine timbers from Waihi and bricks from the original Thames High School built in 1880. We know that we will have something very special when all of these elements are put together.
Research into the NZETC would not be possible without the assistance and encouragement of Tunnelling Company descendants and supporters.
