Most cremations take place right after the service and the ashes are ready for collection or placement in a memorial site within three business days.

Chapel services

The cemetery and crematorium has a memorial chapel suitable for all types of funeral services. It has audio/visual facilities, a viewing room and an air conditioned catering facility. It seats approximately 95 people.

Catering and reception facilities

Following a funeral service, family and friends can take advantage of our licensed catering and reception services to commemorate the life and passing of their loved one.

Garden of Remembrance

The Queensland Garden of Remembrance is situated within the Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery and is operated and maintained by the Office of Australian War Graves.

The original garden was opened in the early 1960s and was extended in 1988.  Set around a large fig tree, the memorial walls have the capacity for 45,500 plaques.

For queries relating to the Garden of Remembrance, contact the Office of Australian War Graves by:

  • phone on 1800 026 185
  • visiting their office on site at Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery (located in the middle of the cemetery and separate from the Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery office)

Missing Persons memorial garden

Each year thousands of people are reported missing in Australia, many of whom never return home. In honour of the people who are never located or remain missing for a lengthy period of time, the Council has created a Missing Persons memorial garden within Pinnaroo Cemetery and Crematorium. The garden provides a place for reflection and hope for the families and friends of loved ones who have not returned.

Central to the memorial garden is a tear drop sculpture and water feature surrounded by a memorial wall for the placement of remembrance plaques. The sculpture and water feature will be illuminated during Missing Persons week which is held in the first week of August each year.

For more information regarding the Missing Persons memorial garden please contact the Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery office by email.

Locating graves and ashes memorial sites

Lawn graves and ashes memorial sites are relatively easy to locate at the cemetery and crematorium. Allotment numbers are marked on the bottom right of most plaques and the numbers run in sequential order. Not all graves have plaques or headstones, so this should be kept in mind when locating a specific grave by number.

For further assistance locating graves and memorial sites, visit the cemetery and crematorium during office hours.
