The South African National Monuments Commission site is:

http://www.nationalmonuments.co.za

It lists burials of soldiers eg Major WJS Rundle, but has no other details eg date of death or where buried. I suggested in feedback that they should say what other details they hold, and include a guide to other sources.

PS: Or try Steve Watt in South Africa (address avaliable)

Noticed on the Hagsoc site (www.hagsoc.org.au) that “Breaker” Morant and Handcock are shown as DOS ie presumably “Died of Sickness”. Lead poisoning maybe!
