This mass grave monument was erected in 1997 in memory of 14 Māori warriors who fought against British troops during the Battle of Te Ranga in 1864. Previously the site featured a circle of agapanthus and a concrete marker. Part of the inscription reads; ‘This mass grave monument erected in 1997 in memory of 14 Māori warriors who fought in defence of their lands against British troops in the battle of Te Ranga on 21 June 1864.’ It was unveiled in 1998. Photo: Debbie McCauley (July, 2011).
