Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery was formally named the Field Herero Cemetery or the Non-Christian Cemetery. It sits across the road from S I !Gobs Senior Secondary School on Ian Scheepers Road just down from the cross-road of main highway to Karibib. Back when the country was German South West Africa anyone who had not been baptized were buried here. There are many unmarked graves in this cemetery. Many are Herero soldiers who died during the war with the Germans in 1904 and buried in mass graves. Some of these soldiers also fought as they defended Omaruru against various attacks by Swartbooi and Nama commandos in cattle raids before in war with the Germans in the 1800. There are only a few graves with markers.
