Notes: The Clinton Cemetery is off SH1 just beyond the town on the Gore side and is surrounded by farmland, well fenced and maintained with a parking area by the gates into the main part. The Catholic section is presently separated from the rest of the cemetery by a paddock and only part of this section is fenced off, there being a grave within the paddock, clearly visible with yew trees growing at each corner.
The Clinton Cemetery was, and still is, managed and maintained by a local trust.
Jos Abernethy was one of the Trustees during the 1910-1919 decade.
In 2009 members of the Balclutha Branch NZSG (Balclutha Genealogical Society) undertook the photographing and updating of transcriptions for headstones and burial records.
