Location Information

Mutare is a town about 250 kilometres south east of Harare close to the border with Mozambique. Approaching from Harare, turn right at the intersection of Robert Mugabe Avenue and Herbert Chitepo Street. After approximately 800 metres turn right again at the intersection with Railway Avenue. Follow this road past the bottling plant and bear left at the fork where it becomes Simon Mazorodze Road. After a further kilometre, turn right into Hampshire Road and the cemetery will be found about 300 metres along on the left hand side. The 5 Commission pattern headstones are widely scattered, and it is best to seek directions to them from the cemetery staff.
