The grave of Commandant Ferdinand Potgieter in the Roodewal cemetery. He was killed with 43 boers at the battle of Roodewal on 11 April 1902. His last wish was to be buried as he fell and that is why his grave is north-easterly and not in the same direction as the rest of the graves. He was buried on the same spot as he fell.
Andries Petrus Hendricks was not married and somewhat of a recluse, he lived in fear of the black race. His fear became reality when he was murdered by his house help in 1981. He left no heirs and his will specified that all his money must be spent on the biggest monument in the grave yard. The inscription reads Andries Petrus Hendricks 3-10-1910 – 3-10-1981 “Gone and Forgotten”.
This grave in the Renosterriver military cemetery is of a boer P. Myburg. He is the only boer between all the british soldiers. Very strange because the boers and britons were not buried together.
