The Old Cemetery:

Over 1,000 names from the three cemeteries. Old: {10677}. The oldest of the three cemeteries, dating from 1871, is simply a small fenced off area of a public cemetery near the city center. It includes a few graves of several Jewish pioneers involved in the early days of the city who died serving on either side in the Boer War, 1899-1902. Each of the thirty or so tombstones of these pioneer families has been completely transcribed. Some of the gravestones are in poor condition; and some graves now are unmarked.
