Brookfield Cemetery

Located in the inner western suburbs of Brisbane, directly opposite the Brookfield showgrounds lies this peaceful little cemetery. Established in 1886, the Brookfield Cemetery encompasses four acres. In this prominently historical cemetery lay many of the area's established families and Chinese gold-miners from the late 1800s.

Burial options

New monumental burial sites are still available at Brookfield Cemetery which allow for two burials as well as ashes interment in the grave. When checking costs, refer to historical monumental grave.

Burials in existing family graves may also be available, where the grave still has space or the last burial was more than 30 years ago. Family grave re-use is only available to direct descendants of the people already buried in the grave or those related to the burial right holder. Download family grave re-use application forms.

New graves can be pre-purchased at today's prices or purchased as required.

Memorial gardens and walls for ashes 

The following ashes memorial options are available at Brookfield Cemetery:

  • memorial garden
  • memorial wall.

Alternatively, ashes can be interred into gravesites.

Locating graves
