Burial Information


Cemetery:

MOROGORO CEMETERY
Tanzania

Grave Reference:

II. E. II.

Location:

Morogoro is situated 195 kilometres west of Dar-Es-Salaam. At the large roundabout on the main road from Dar-Es-Salaam take the turning for the town centre. Follow this road straight through the town and come out the other side on a narrow road lined with mango trees. About 1 kilometre from the centre of town, turn right onto a rough track (this is marked by a CWCG direction sign). After approximately 100 metres, bear left at the fork (also signposted) and the cemetery is about 50 metres along the track on your right, set back amongst trees.
