Brakpan Memorial Park is the site of a cemetery containing the remains of mine officials that died during the 1922 Rand Revolt. The site has been overrun by squatters, graves have been vandalised and the site is terribly overgrown as you can see from the photos above and below. Members of Brakpan Museum are willng to volunteer their time but they need financial support to buy materials to rehabilitate protect the site. Click here to view on google maps.
