Note: this list is taken from 'The Norwegian Settlers in Natal 1882' compiled by Andrew and Anna Halland and Ingeborg Kjonstad published by Norwegian Lutheran Church, Marburg, 1967.

There are spelling variations which occur in the Centenary Supplement 'The Norwegian Settlers : Marburg Natal, 1882-1982' ed Aagot Gulbrandsen, Borhild Cawdry, Merle Kjonstad published by Norwegian Church Marburg 1982 [e.g. Dorethea instead of Dortea in IGESUND Lot 3]. This supplement offers descendants of the original families as at 1982.

This is really something very special. As a member of this wonderful church, I have taken photo's of the graveyards and submitted to Billion Graves. com, Have received feedback from 2 descendants thanking for this. Will be able to view the register of all burials and wall of remembrance shortly And then I can inscribe as much as possible for future generations. Keep up the great work. Trevor Harris
