The memorial is one of the two sites in the Bluff, Durban area honouring the Voortrekkers imprisoned during the South African War. It honours those who perished - mostly young children. The camp was the last one in Natal to close (February 1903). It is located near the corner of Thorn and Dudley roads (click here to view on Google Maps).

The site is currently a truck park for a commercial company and is covered in rubbish. There is no fence protecting the memorial.

The local community believes that relocating the memorial may be a solution. Please use this thread to add background and updates.
