This cemetery lies directly opposite the "In Memoriam" cemetery, (originally the Municipal) which is situated to the South-West of the city, and is separated from it by a public road.

Historical notes:

During the Second World War, a military hospital was established in the Tempe Military Camp, which also housed the headquarters of the Orange Free State Command. Numbers 27 and 62 Air Schools were operated from the Bloemspruit Aerodrome very close to the city, where training was carried out under the Empire Air Training Scheme. Bloemfontein (Hamilton) War Cemetery contains 62 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War. 29 of the burials are of South African Army personnel who were originally buried in the vast areas of the old non-European cemetery which became unmaintainable. Their remains were brought into the cemetery in the early 1970s.
