From the traffic light in Colbert, turn north onto Danielsville Rd. continuing through the residential
section, past the golf course and over the bridge at bottom of the long hill. Once at the top of the next hill, past Bulloch's Mill Rd. on the right, you will take the first road on your left which is Colbert Grove Church Rd. The church and the cemetery will be on the left about 1.5 miles down this road. Ample parking is provided.

A good number of graves in this cemetery are marked only by Funeral Home Markers (FHM), and some are in the edges of the stand of trees at the back of the lot. Often, the only date on the markers are the date of death. When this is the case, I have listed the date after the funeral home name. For FHMs not originating from businesses in Athens, GA, I have included the city.
