Memorials and Monuments in South Africa

Memorials and Monuments in South Africa.

It was never my original intention to create this page, but as I photographed for the South Africa War Graves Project I suddenly discovered that I was taking lots of photographs in cemeteries and of memorials during my travels. I have more or less completed my photography for the South African War Graves Project, and it has been a very satisfying project, but it can never end, as more memorials and graves still have to be found. My quest to photograph cemeteries became a sideline, and very interesting one too. I did discover that there is very little information about most of these memorials and cemeteries, many aren’t even on the map, but they are a part of our history whether we like it or not and as such worthwhile recording.

As usual this is an ongoing project and as usual some pics open in a new window. Special thanks must go to all my contributors, especially Terry Cawood, Ronnie Lovemore, Alta Griffiths, Peter Moss, Ken and Eleanor Garvie, Tony Wood, and James Houston-McMillan.
