After the First World War, the New Zealand government wanted its missing soldiers remembered on its own national memorials and chose sites on each of the major battlefields. The New Zealand Memorial Apse at Tyne Cot Cemetery can be found in ther centre of the Tyne Cot Memorial on the back wall of the cemetery where more than 34,000 names of Commonwealth soldiers missing in the Ypres salient after 16 August 1917 are commemorated.
