If you are a historian or have an interest in graves of the Anglo Boer War then the Sutherland graveyards will hold an interest for you. The graveyards are unique for their gravestones etched using handmade sandstone tools.

War graves from the Anglo Boer war are in the English graveyard where one soldier is named on two gravestones! This soldier received a communal burial after drowning in a flash flood and a military cross was awarded later by the British government which was placed in the same graveyard.

A number of war graves, some of them unmarked are scattered in farms across the district. A Jewish graveyard is the resting place of some of Sutherlands business owners.
