          Unfortunatly you will need a car to get to Isandlwana you may be able to get a driver + car to take you there maybe from Durban.Its a magical place and well worth a visit+ the Battlefields etc.

          Hi There . I believe Richard Wyatt Vause is buried in the St Thomas Church Cemetery , do you know if his grave can be located , and does the church have burial records from 1935 and 1936 . Vause was a survivor of the British massacre at Isandlwana in 1879 , I'm attempting to locate his grave along with a couple of others who also survived Isandlwana , and may possibly be buried in your cemetery . Thank you in advance for your time and effort . Regards Gary.
