Central Cemetries
Region B, Zone 3

Located to the west of Johannesburg, in the suburb of Bosmont, Newclare Cemetery was built in 1934. Servicing the suburbs of Westbury, Newlands and Riverlea, Newclare is a quiet location, ringed by gold-mine dumps. The cemetery is split by Maraisburg Road one side holding older graves, the other the Walter Sisulu Memorial Garden, Chinese and Muslim section.

Most famous of its graves is that of Walter Sisulu, the former activist leader and ANC stalwart who served 26 years on Robben Island as a prisoner of the apartheid state. Though the cemetery is full, there is still room for family second burials and other non-burial options.
