Cemeteries

Brisbane City Council's cemeteries and crematoria honour residents who've made Brisbane the diverse and liveable city it is today.

Council manages 12 cemeteries and three crematoria catering for burials, cremations and memorials for ashes. The Hemmant, Mount Gravatt and Pinnaroo cemeteries offer a range of burial options. The remaining nine cemeteries are historic sites with limited burial options.

Increased COVID-19 restrictions

Increased restrictions are in place for South East Queensland. Find out more.

Impacts on cemeteries due to three-day lockdown

In accordance with Queensland Government coronavirus restrictions, attendance at funerals is limited to 10 people from 4pm on Saturday 31 July until 4pm on Tuesday 3 August 2021.

Council's cemeteries at Mount Gravatt, Hemmant, and Pinnaroo will continue to provide burial and cremation services for customers with an existing booking, however, catering services will not be available.

All cemetery offices will be closed to the public during the lockdown, however, our team will still be available to support you by phone on 07 3403 8888 or email:

Our locations cater to and reflect the diverse communities of Brisbane, offering burial settings developed in cooperation with:

  • Brisbane's Greek, Serbian and Russian Orthodox Churches
  • members of our Italian, Croatian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Orthodox Jewish and Muslim communities.

Council continually upgrades and expands its cemetery and crematorium centres to meet the needs of the community.
