Infant mortality was very high during the siege finally reaching 50%, a total of 1679 infant deaths recorded for the 124 day siege.
I am not aware whether these deaths were accurately recorded, or have survived.
The Kimberley Siege slips may mention some civilian names ?
I am looking for a record of 2 uncles who died as children in the seige of Kimberly. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Children were Ronald and Stanley Macfarlane or McFarlane or MacFarlane. Sons of Malcolm and Florence Evelyn (nee Storrier) Macfarlane. Thankyou.
