Grave Records
Unfortunately, not all records are complete because Council only gained full control of Brisbane’s public cemeteries in July 1930. Before that time, a number of trusts established under Queensland law managed these cemeteries.

For more information, phone Brisbane City Cemeteries on 07 3407 8128.
