Photo from eGGSA

Cemetery records adapted from Sue Fifer's. Surnames link to gravestone photos at eGGSA. Given names link to civil death records, obtained from the on-line images of the LDS Church (under Gordonia). There are some discrepancies between the death records and the tombstones, including in names and dates. There are also death records for Israel FINN (burial place not known) and Reneé LENHOFF (buried in Windhoek), who died in Upington but who do not appear in the cemetery records.
