Hemmant Crematorium

A Brisbane City Council owned crematorium situated in the grounds of Hemmant Cemetery. The Crematorium is set amongst eucalypt trees and wattles. It is located in Brisbane’s bayside, next to the Fleming Road Reserve. This site is rich in social history and many of our pioneers rest there. It has some audio/visual facilities, a viewing room and an air conditioned catering facility. It seats approximately 115 people.


The funeral director will deliver the coffin to the crematorium for funeral services held at a private church or facility. Most cremations take place right after the service (when available). Ashes are ready for collection or placement in a memorial site, within two to three days.

Chapel services

Hemmant Cemetery and Crematorium has a memorial chapel, suitable for all types of funeral services.

Catering and reception facilities

The Hemmant Crematorium offers post-funeral catering and reception facilities.

Memorial gardens and walls for ashes

Various garden settings and memorial wall options are available at Hemmant Cemetery and Crematorium including:

  • native gardens
  • touchstones
  • sandstone rock memorials
  • niche and portrait gallery wall sites.

Alternatively, ashes can be interred into gravesites.

You need to make an appointment to view available memorial options at Hemmant Cemetery. To request an appointment, contact the office by email.

Garden of Peace

The grounds contain an area dedicated to infants and babies. This area features a small outdoor shelter for use as a chapel or for funeral services.

Locating graves and ashes memorial sites

Lawn graves and ashes memorial sites are relatively easy to locate at Hemmant Cemetery. The allotment number is marked on the bottom right hand side of most plaques and numbers run in sequential order.

As the monument area is quite old, not all monuments are numbered. Numbering was introduced in the late 1900s. Council recommends you visit the cemetery during office hours for assistance and directions. Alternatively, contact the office by email to request a map. State the grave location detail, including the name of the deceased.

Not all graves have plaques or headstones. Keep this in mind when trying to locate a specific grave by number.
