    Stellawood looks good:

    I tried to find an official website for it but couldn't. However, searches brought up listings for Billion Graves, Findagrave etc - I didn't explore these.

    Found her gravestone - searched for Evans Herbert (her father) as nothing came up for Catherine or Katherine on a search at Stellawood. But it says the gravestone is in Durban West Street Cemetary - not sure if that is the same as Stellawood, but I don't think so, because I did a search but didn't specify Stellawood.

    According to Find a Grave "Stellawood Cemetery and Crematorium is also known as Durban Cemetery and Crematorium" and the CWGC states that "This municipal cemetery is the largest in Durban. It is situated at the top of Stellawood Road which interesects Umbilo Road." :)

    Following that link, then the links at the top of the page, I got to some info about the cemetery itself, including a plan:

    https://graves-at-eggsa.org/main.php?g2_itemId=1530843

    The street names shown round the edge identify this as what is on the map as Brook Street Cemetery:

    Rather confusing, but I think West Street Cemetery and The Brook Street Cemetery are possibly the same.
