East African Cemeteries and Memorials

Headstone inscriptions, memorial plaques and burial records in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

The purpose of this site is to make available information on those people who settled in East Africa during the last century by recording their final resting places and any memorials set up in their honour.

This is being done primarily for genealogical purposes , to assist those seeking such information on their relatives and friends.

Here, as in the rest of the world, memorials are deteriorating and even disappearing completely due to the effects of weather, neglect and vandalism. By recording them now it is hoped that the images and the information they provide will remain long after the memorials themselves have gone.
