Until fairly recently, I was under the impression that just three bodies were removed from the battlefield at Isandlwana to be re-buried elsewhere;

Lt.Col. Durnford, buried at Fort Napier Cemetery, Pietermaritzburg
Lt. Anstey, buried St John's Churchyard, Woking
Tpr MacLeroy, buried Commercial Road Cemetery, Pietermaritzburg (grave badly vandalised)

However, having read Terry Sole's book and finding information elsewhere, it seems that several other individuals were also removed by friends or relatives.

1. Capt. Bradstreet (Newcastle Mounted Rifles) was buried in Newcastle Cemetery in Dec 1879 (photo of his grave on 'Find a grave' website).

2.  Tpr Deane (Natal Carbineers) was buried in Commercial Road Cemetery, Pietermaritzburg (confirmed in cemetery records, photo in graves section)

3.  Conductor Du Bois was buried on his family farm near Helpmekaar, the headstone since removed and located at Talana Cemetery (photo in graves section).

4.  Tpr Dinkelmann (Newcastle Mounted Rifles) was buried in the small cemetery at Beginsel Farm - other family headstones are there but no sign of one to him.

5.  Lt Scott (Natal Carbineers) was buried in Commercial Road Cemetery, Pietermaritzburg in Oct 1879. There is a large toppled headstone on the family plot which may be his, a contact of mine from the Natal Family History Society is hopefully looking into having the memorial turned around so it can be seen.


Just thought this may be of interest.

Regards,

Tim

Hi Tim
I'm fairly certain I got my mate Graves to post the Dubois Headstone after I was at Talana in May ?
