Mbaraki Cemetery, Mombasa

This entry is now a complete record of all names in the European register. Having made a very brief third visit to the cemetery it is apparent there must be two registers. One for European burials and one for Goan burials. It seems the Catholic burials started in this cemetery several years before the Protestant burials and certainly before 1900. I have not seen the Goan Register. In later years all burials were included in the same register.

There are additional photographs for approximately another 30 more graves, as well as additions of some full names where previously only initials were entered.

From March 1957 the register stopped recording the date of death and only gave the date of burial. I have therefore indicated a month and year of death estimated from the date of burial for entries after this date.

WW II war graves were not recorded in the register, although WW I graves were, and so they are not been included in this index. If you need information on the WW II graves please refer to the CWGC web site. I have however included WWII burials if the casualty clearly originated from East Africa or was enlisted in the East African Forces.

This register is unusual in that for many entries the cause of death is recorded. I have not included this information but if you wish to know if the cause of death is recorded for anyone in this list please feel free to contact me.
