Update to cemeteries, crematoriums and funeral services

Brisbane City Council wishes to advise front counters at Council’s cemeteries, crematoriums have reopened with enhanced safety and social distancing measures in place at funeral services.

In accordance with State Government regulations, up to 50 people may now attend outdoor funeral and memorial services, and up to 25 people inside our chapels for services.

While all services remain operational at cemeteries and crematoriums, residents should consider making appointments for visits such as collecting ashes. Plaques can be arranged via email or phone.

Live streaming options for chapel services remain available and catering services have recommenced with appropriate enhanced safety measures in place.

We encourage all residents to continue to practice safe social distancing and hygiene while using Council facilities.

Brisbane City Council is working closely with the Australian Government and Queensland Health and is following their expert health advice to help minimise the transmission of coronavirus.

As updates are available, they will be included on our Coronavirus: Council  updates and impacts page. For more information phone Council on 07 3403 8888.
