Dec 2nd, 2016 | By | Category: Radio News

A project is underway to clean up the graves of Spanish Flu victims ahead of the hundredth anniversary of the epidemic.

Wellington City Council is backing the efforts of volunteers who are clearing undergrowth, polishing headstones, and doing research into flu victims buried at Karori Cemetery.

Project director Barbara Mulligan says it’s about reminding Wellingtonians how the epidemic affected the city, especially those involved in the war effort.
