The Heilbron Concentration Camp Memorial.

The original images on this page were courtesy of Terry Cawood. The Cemetery is interesting because it contains not only concentration camp graves, but a large mix of old and new graves as well as the an imperial soldiers plot. I took a lot of pics and need to cross reference them with the names on the memorials to see if any of those missing Burghers are buried here as well. More information on the Heilbron Camp can be found at British Concentration Camps of the South African War 1900-1902. The cemetery can be found at Google Earth Co-ordinates 27° 16.744'S 27° 58.177'E

  • The camp had 3986 prisoners of whom 1124 died in captivaty.

The object of reproducing the list here is to see if these people can be located on Geni and perhaps develop trees from them

At least 15 000 Blacks were used as combatants by the British, especially as scouts to track down Boer commandoes and armed block house guards, but also in non-combatant roles by both British and Boer forces as wagon drivers, etc. They suffered severely as result of the British "scorched earth policy" during which those who lived on White farms were removed to concentration camps, as were the women and children of their White employers
