South Brisbane Cemetery A-Z of R.I.P.

Old cemeteries are touchstones to our history, and every person buried in a cemetery has a story to tell, and there are a hundred thousand stories in the South Brisbane Cemetery. South Brisbane Cemetery A-Z of R.I.P. tells the story of Brisbane south of the river through the people who lived and died there. They came from all walks of life, and together they reflect the changing face of colonial and 20th-century Queensland.
