Hi Louis... there are two cemeteries in Botrivier and Botrivier is a town in its own right, so you souldn't use Caledon unless in the District sense. I have opened cemetery categories for both cemeteries, and categorized all the persons listed above in the Botrivier Coloured Cemetery. I do believe this freespace page should be renamed "Botrivier Coloured Cemetery, Botrivier, Western Cape Province". Is it acceptable to refer to a 'Coloured' cemetery? I need clarity on this. I can also direct you to other freespace cemetery pages to see the layout we are using in Southern Africa, if you wish. Thanks for your work on this cemetery.

Happy to standardise. I realised I needed a freespace page because I kept referring to the same place. I also have a freespace page that is dedicated to an oral history book that I keep referring to. You haven't come across something similar?
