Lt. Scott's grave is the large toppled one in the centre - unfortunately it seems that the headstone remains in this position so I'm not sure how much of the inscription you'll be able to see (if my memory serves correctly, the grave to the right is his brother Daniel who also served during the Zulu War with the Natal Carbineers).

I'll try to get some rough directions to you shortly, just need to ask a contact of mine who found the memorial for me - I did enquire into the possibility of the stone being turned around, but I think it's such a big memorial that this seems unlikely.

Regards,

Tim

Sorry it's taken a while - rough directions to Scott's grave from my contact in South Africa, hope they're of some use:

It's in the Anglican section. That is opposite the Old Greys Hospital and  backs on to Miller street.
From the Lych gate it is probably easiest to take the second pathway facing left (North) …walk right to the end boundary wall,(nearest grave is Buntine/Pinson…. face north- east and travel past 3 main blocks of graves and turn right,:
graves then are Matthews; Coates;Broome: The Scott graves are in a strange diagonal block, before William.
 
Regards,

Tim

I have seen a photo of the gravestone prior to it being toppled - as far as I can make out the inscription reads as follows:

F(J?) DURRANT SCOTT
LIEUTENANT
NATAL CARBINEERS
BORN 19th APRIL 1851
FELL IN ACTION AT
ISANDHLWANA
22nd JANY 1879
AGED 28 YEARS & 9 MONTHS

Best of luck with getting the headstone turned around, although it may well take a few of you!

Regards,

Tim
