Known Burial Locations of Border War / Police / Non World War graves = 2000 + approx.

For Border War lists see our database listed on home page, however known numbers included in listing below.

***Note it is quite apparent that the South Africa listings do not match our current Border War and extras listing. Please note that we have an additional 10000 listings in our Post War pages.


There is also approx. 25000 Boer War, Angola-Border War, Freedom Stuggle and Rand Revolt graves. So keep an eye out in all cemeteries, as to date we have no lists to work off for those that are not CWGC graves. Border War and Rand Revolt databases are available to view on the home page.

The National Coordinator Terry Cawood can be contacted for all lists. He may also have extra details of Boer War cems.
