Crosses will be placed on the war veterans' graves in the Pioneer cemetery as well as the RSA sections of Kopuatama Cemetery in the lead up to Anzac Day.

Recognising that many veterans are buried in other sections of Kopuatama Cemetery, crosses will be available for people to place on those graves on April 22.

People are invited to meet at the front gate of the cemetery at 1pm to collect crosses to place on those graves.

Everyone is welcome to participate, and crosses will be there regardless of weather at the time.
