Please could anyone help me on the following? I am struggling with a Mary Annie Smith (b. 16/10/187)who married Thomas Riddell. The puzzle for me is why they went to South Africa in the first place and she died aged 48 in 1924 in South Africa yet she is buried at Warden. In that time how and why did they bring her body back to Warden to be buried and what they were doing there in the first place?

Any help or pointers would be most appreciated.


Thank you,

Paul
