Braamfontein Crematorium
« on: Monday 14 May 18 19:22 BST (UK) »
According to his death certificate my ancestor Stanley Chavasse was buried at Braamfontein Crematorium.  He died on 5 Jan 1953 (born 15 Aug 1873 in Walthamstow, Essex, England).  I wonder if there is some sort of permanent memorial and, if so, how I would find it.
Thanks

Unfortunately any memorial to him that might have been erected has not been photographed by volunteers who then submit them to eggsa.org

Do you have his estate paperwork?  If not, let me know.
