Find a Grave or Court Marriage Record

+3 votes

I am looking to find the grave of a passed relative (Surname James). Wife is living but frail and has requested to be burried next to her Husband.

Husband has passed but is buried in Port Shepstone, KwaZulu-Natal somewhere. But we have no idea where grave is. Besides name of Husband and approximate date of passing/marriage, we have no idea on the exact location of Mr James grave within cemetery.

Does anybody know where I can find this information?

Do death certificates say who the funeral director was, or place of burial? If not, you may need to contact all the cemeteries in the town, assuming he was buried there.

Thank You. All we know is that Mr James was born 30/08/1924. He passed 05/07/1979.

We dont know his id AND dont have death notice

He is buried in the Albersville Cemetery. Port Shepstone.
We did contact a large Funeral Director in the area bt they could not help. We then visted the Albertsville Cemetary and found that all the grave numbers had been removed. The manager in charge of the Cemetary in his wisdom had decided to remove all the grave numbers. For a fee (more correctly a BRIBE) he will provide the grave number and location.

We however declined his services and and found the grave.
