Lions Bush Private Cemetery

This Cemetery on Lions Bush Farm has the graves of some of the persons who shaped the history of Natal and KZN. My thanks to Chris Brown, the owner of the farm who allowed me to photograph the graves.

The grave of Duncan McKenzie, born Scotland (1826 – 1900) was the original Pioneer who settled in the area, and the father of General Duncan McKenzie K.C.M.G, who played a large part in the Natal Carbineers, during the Boer War , Bambatha Rebellion and WWI (S.W.A.).

This post also has the grave of Peter McKenzie Brown ( 1925- 2004), former farm owner, who was the Leader of the Liberal Party in Natal, prior to 1994. Peter Brown was at odds with the Nationalist Party prior to 1994 and spent time in prison and under lengthy house arrest for his political beliefs.
