Burial options

New lawn beam and monumental burial sites are still available at Bald Hills Cemetery. These sites allow for two to three burials as well as ashes interment in the grave. When checking costs, refer to historical monumental and lawn grave.

Burials in existing family graves may also be available. This is only available if 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.

You can download family grave re-use application forms.

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

Toowong Cemetery manages the Bald Hills Cemetery. To view available burial options at Bald Hills Cemetery, request an appointment by email. As there is no office at Bald Hills, an officer from Toowong will meet you on-site.

Locating graves

The practice of marking numbers on gravestones was introduced in the late 1900s. As most of the graves at Bald Hills Cemetery are quite old, the majority of headstones do not have marked numbers. This can make finding graves at Bald Hills Cemetery difficult.

Council recommends you contact the Toowong Cemetery office by email to request a map. State the name of the deceased and the grave location.
