Aberdeen Cemetery

This well-maintained cemetery is the final resting place of a diverse group of people, and attracts the interest of many visitors to the town.

One section is devoted to Anglo-Boer War graves, in memory of the officers, NCOs and men who lost their lives in the district, mostly in 1901 or 1902.

Of particular interest is the grave of Jan Vorster, who was the original owner of the farm Brakfontein, which later grew into the town of Aberdeen.

Adjoining the Christian cemetery is the separate Jewish cemetery with 25 graves, five of which have no identification.
