Field of Remembrance

The SCRSA has over 1000 crosses that represent soldiers that never returned from WWI from our area.  These crosses were constructed during the WW100 Centenary and are displayed yearly at Caroline Bay during the week of ANZAC day.

We are working on providing a list of names on these crosses, so watch this space.

We have fantastic support from the community for the setup and pack up of these crosses, so thank you to those who help us!!  We are also supported by the Timaru District Council Parks Department,  who mark out the field for us so they are straight and quick to install.


The SCRSA would like to thank the members of the Timaru Community Menzshed who, in 2023, constructed boxes for the safe storage of our crosses.  This project was not possible without donations from the following generous organisations and individuals:
