Dutton Park Cemetery (aka South Brisbane Cemetery, which is also it’s correct name) is located at Annerley Rd, Dutton Park 4102, Ph (07) 3403 7765 and is one of the earliest cemeteries in Queensland, which contains many old and ornate monuments. It was reserved as a cemetery in 1864 but the first official burial did not take place until August 1870. It has been rumoured that several burials of Aboriginals occurred prior this date.
An extra seven acres were added to the original cemetery in 1904, a move that effectively closed off one section of Cornwall Street. Today the cemetery consists of 54 portions and slopes downwards towards the Brisbane River from Annerley Road to TJ Doyle Memorial Park Drive. The cemetery originally extended all the way to the riverbank, including the Oven’s Head outcrop. The other boundary roads are Cornwall Street, Fairfield Road and Princess Street on the south. To the north is the Dutton Park recreation reserve, which currently has had no clear boundary since a timber border fence burnt down in 1969.
South Brisbane Cemetery contains the graves of many early local residents, both famous and not-so-famous, and also prisoners from nearby Boggo Road Gaol. In 1888, A B Wilson, a noted architect, designed the impressive entrance gates, boundary wall and railings, which were built by W Reid. South Brisbane Cemetery is listed on the Queensland Heritage Register (I.D. 602406). The Brisbane City Council took over the management of the cemetery in 1928.
Dutton Park Cemetery is closed to new burials with the exception of Family interment in Monumental graves and Burial of ashes in family graves.
