Clermont Cemetery caters for lawn burials and is an active Council managed cemetery. Approx. 3602 burials to date.
Established in 1866, the cemetery is an early public burial ground in central Queensland and an important source of historical information for Queensland’s pioneer mining, agricultural and pastoral industries. The earliest registered burial in the cemetery was that of a two year old child, David Kilpatrick, who was interred in 1867.
The cemetery also contains a mass grave and marker for the victims of the 1916 flood, which swept away the lower areas of Clermont with the loss of over 60 lives – the worst flood in terms of loss of life in Queensland’s history – and which brought about the relocation of the town from the flats around the Clermont Lagoon to higher ground nearby.
At least 36 of the flood victims were buried in the Clermont Cemetery. The white cross marker at the mass grave shows the depth of the flood waters that went through the cemetery itself.
Because of its history the Clermont Cemetery has now been placed on the Queensland Heritage Register.
