There were, still are, Godbolds in Natal.

I seem to remember a book.

Thank you to the two people who responded. I don't think a Death certificate
would help in finding the grave site
I have just arrived in South Africa and think the only thing to do is to go
to Rustenburg myself,
(if I can escape my family's Braais).
I was wondering if any knows anything about any Rustenburg cemeteries used
in 1949, for an Anglican
burial or which church would have been attended by English protestants at
that time. I have never been to
Rustenburg, so any help, in trying to find Harold GODBOLD's grave, would be

Kind regards,

I met a lovely lady on the train to London recently, we started talking and
told me her father who suffered with chest problems, had been advised to
emigrate with his family, (including her and her sister) to Rustenburg, just
after the war. She remembers going to school in Rustenburg and has fond
of her time in South Africa.

She is a feisty, elderly lady, who lives in the UK and her equally elderly
sister lives in the USA. Their one wish is to find their father's grave
they can still travel. She knows he was buried in Rustenburg, but can't
which church or cemetery it was. I wondered if SKS could help?

Kind regards,
