The exhumation & relocation of graves located on the farm Vlaklaagte 21 IS, Goedehoop Colliery, Mpumalanga Province
Archaetnos CC was requested by Zenzele Funeral Home to assist with the exhumation and relocation of a number of graves on behalf of Goedehoop Colliery located on the farm Vlaklaagte 21 IS. All though most of these graves are unmarked with proper headstones, most are known (through descendants) and younger than 60 years of age. They therefore fall outside of SAHRA jurisdiction. The extension of the existing mining activities necessitated the exhumation and relocation of said graves.
A total of 17 graves were exhumed and relocated during the process.
