In St Edmund King & Martyr Church, Lombard Street, the City of London.
In Exeter Cathedral is a memorial window with accompanying plaques, dedicated to the men of Devon who died in South Africa, which includes Dr. F. G. Engelbach.
There's a memorial brass plaque in St. Andrew's Church, Moretonhampstead, Devon, and also an impressive "episcopal chair", carved by him and presented to the church, which has a later addition of a memorial plaque attached to it. An Engelbach family history site has some information on him (copied from the Moretonhampstead History Society's website), with a photo of the chair.
Here is a pic of Civil-Surgeon Engelbach; from APGW Vol.1 page 246.
H.W.Wilson, the editor of Vol.1 tells us that " Civil Surgeon too, covered himself with honours. Tending the wounded under a terrific fire, he was shot through the hand. He had just remarked that he was now handicapped in his work when, dressing his own wound, he was struck a second time, by a bullet in the forehead, and killed on the spot".

Frederick George Engelbach qualified as Doctor and Surgeon at St Bartholomew's in London in 1866
and then set up practise in Moretonhampstead. In 1898 he moved to London.
When the Boer War broke out he volunteered for service and was appointed Civil Surgeon. He arrived in time to accompany General French in his famous ride to Kimberley and subsequently accompanied the army in its march to Bloemfontein and then to Pretoria. He also went to Fouriesburg at the time of the surrender of Prinsloo and was present at the battle of Diamond Hill.
On 13 December 1900, while tending the wounded at Nooitgedacht under heavy fire, Surgeon Engelbach was shot through the palm of the left hand. He reputedly made a grim joke about now being handicapped in his work when, in standing up to dress his wound, he was killed by a bullet through the forehead.
Naming officially engraved. On roll he is F.G. Frederick George and 5 bars verified which states: “Original Unit 2nd Cavalry Brigade. Attached to the Volunteer Ambulance when Killed in action at Nooitgedacht Transvaal December 13th 1900.” He was mentioned in despatches by F.-M. Earl Roberts, L.G., Sept. 10th, 1901, for his services.
