These photographs of the Bedford Cenotaph, were taken by Ronnie Lovemore on 25 October 2012 and are used with his permission. Google Earth co-ordinates:  32°40’40.49″S,  26° 5’16.04″E

On 4 May 2016 it was reported that a truck carrying potatoes demolished the memorial when the driver apparently fell asleep at the wheel.  It is not know who will be responsible for the repair of the cenotaph which was demolished in the accident, leaving blocks of Bedford Sandstone blocking the one lane of the R63 for 3 days.
