Hemmant Cemetery and Crematorium


The Hemmant Cemetery and Crematorium offers both lawn and monumental burials. The centre is set amongst eucalypt trees and wattles near Brisbane's bayside, next to the Fleming Road Reserve.

Serving Brisbane since 1875, the Hemmant cemetery is rich in the social history of Brisbane and many of our pioneers have been laid to rest there.

The grounds contain a special garden of peace dedicated to infants and babies whose lives have been tragically cut short. This section features a small outdoor shelter, which can be used as a chapel or for funeral services.

The centre also features a selection of ash memorials, including:

  • sandstone rock memorials
  • native garden memorials
  • memorial walls
  • ash scattering garden
  • ashes interment in family graves
  • the garden of peace for babies
