How to access Queensland cemetery and burial records online and in the Library.

Current cemeteries and crematoria

Details of current cemeteries, crematoria and memorial gardens in Queensland can be located in several ways. These include:

  • Search of municipality, shire or town council websites eg: A search for 'shire' and 'bundaberg' in Google reveals the entry for Bundaberg Regional Council.
    A browse of the Bundaberg Regional Council website reveals a webpage for Cemeteries under their Services' menu. The 'Cemeteries' page lists nine cemeteries administered by the Council as well as providing a Search Box to search the Bundaberg Regional Cemeteries Burial List.
    A link is also provided to the digitised 'Bundaberg Cemetery Burial Register' which is located on the website of the Bundaberg Regional Libraries.

    Alternatively you can locate an up-to-date list and links to Queensland Councils via the QLD Councils website.

NB: Not all local governments or councils use the same navigation method or have the means to provide an online searching facility but their websites are always worth a look if their area of jurisdiction is where your cemeteries of interest are located.
