Hi Nimleon

I have been unable to find anything more than you have on the Solomon's. However I have sent you a PM in this regard.

Hi Nimleon

I have been away so apologies for the late reply. Unfortunately I only have copies of the Brixton Registers from 1910 - 1926. The actual registers are kept at the office at the Braamfontein Cemetery and the Registers for Westpark are kept at the office at Westpark Cemetery.

There is a Cemetery Recording Project on the go and a DVD available to buy, however I have no idea as to whether or not the records from Brixton or Westpark have been captured - here is a link in case you want to make enquiries: http://www.genza.org.za/index.php/en/projects/cemetery-recording/cemetery-recording-dvd

Also, and forgive me for presuming, but if Barnett Solomons was Jewish, you could try looking for help here at:   http://www.jewishgen.org/SAfrica/formal_sources/index.htm#BURIALS


Hope this helps

Brixton Cemetery Johannesburg

Hi, I recently found the grave of my great grandmother, Mahala Clara Sandilands, buried in 1915, in the Brixton cemetery register (through familysearch). It says "Reopened 21/1/34" at the end of the entry. Does this mean the grave was re-used (and body exhumed?)? Would there still be a grave stone? There is no record of her in the eGGSA graves register.

Barnet Solomon's grave can be found on a Find a grave - a search on familysearch will give you the link - he was buried in Westpark in the Jewish Section https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/243478653/barnett-solomon

No photos available - cant find an entry for his wife
