This memorial is located at Devonport Naval Base. It commemorates 352 officers and men of the Royal New Zealand Navy, Royal New Zealand Naval Reserve and the Royal New Zealand Naval Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War and who have no known grave. Most of these lost their lives at sea, but some died in captivity at the hands of the Japanese. Nearly half of those commemorated went down with H.M.S. Neptune in 1941.
The text above the names on the memorial reads:
ROYAL NEW ZEALAND NAVY
THOSE WHOSE NAMES ARE HONOURED HERE DIED SERVING THEIR COUNTRY
AND THE CAUSE OF FREEDOM AND HAVE NO KNOWN GRAVE
