South Malvern Cemetery is located on the outskirts of the small township of Glentunnel in the Selwyn District of Canterbury, New Zealand (South Island).
The first recorded burial to take place in this rural cemetery was in 1880.
The pillars of the entrance gate to South Malvern Cemetery also serve as a war memorial. Three plaques are embedded in the stone pillars.
High-resolution photographs of the grave are available, plus one or two of the cemetery/church if applicable. This includes a full transcription, particularly for those stones that are hard to read or eroded.
