The Manchester Unity Order of Oddfellows was one of the English mutual aid organisations that soon became established among New Zealand's settler population. Members paid a regular subscription and in return received financial support from the friendly society in times of illness, or were provided with funeral funds in the event of death. Members of the Hawke's Bay order posed for a formal photograph at Dannevirke in 1905.
