More than 80 British soldiers who died while serving in the British army between 1879 and 1898, are buried in the Fort Eshowe Military Cemetery. A granite memorial at the entrance to the cemetery identifies 48 of these men, while 34 graves belong to unknown soldiers. The men died not only from battle wounds but also from enteric fever, dysentery, typhoid, bronchitis, pneumonia and sunstroke.

Continue on past the site of KwaMondi and after ± 50m turn to the right to reach the Military Cemetery.
