Location Information

The Harare Memorial is located within the African plot of Harare (Pioneer) Cemetery. The memorial now commemorates by name 38 men of the British South Africa Police and 28 of the Rhodesia Native Regiment who fell in the First World War. The nearby Harare Park Memorial, an obelisk erected to the honour of South Rhodesian native soldiers by their government, was the former commemoration point for those now commemorated by name on the Harare Memorial.

Proceed for a further 2 kilometres, passing over a large flyover. At the crossroads turn right and the entrance to the Cemetery will be found 200 metres further along on the right.
