Description

PINNAROO LAWN CEMETERY & CREMATORIUM

was established in 1962, and is (1 of 5) of the Brisbane Regions largest cemeteries.  On the northside of Brisbane, and to the north of the Brisbane Region at the town of Bridgeman Downs. 

Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery is the only cemetery in the Brisbane Region, that is home to the "Queensland Garden of Remembrance", & the "Office of Australian War Graves" - they're both separate entities of business to the Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery, and are both maintained and administrated by the Office of Australian War Graves. 

Queensland Garden of Remembrance, and the Office of Australian War Graves (within Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery) are located between:  ANZAC Portions - 3 & 6, of Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery.  War graves at Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery can be found in the portions (marked, ANZ-3-4-5 & 6) on the map of this cemetery.  However their are an extensive number of memorials or graves of war veterans' -men and women- plotted throughout the other various portions of Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery too.  Hence being that Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery has a large extensive number of cemetery - divisions (known as, "Portions") spread out throughout its grounds.  I recommend obtaining a full portions map of Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery, when locating a 'grave', in the great number of 'portions', that make up the Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery.

There is a crematorium (Pinnaroo Crematorium) & memorial chapel precinct catering for all funeral services, situated at the front (between both main entrances) of Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery & Crematorium.

Address:  Pinnaroo Lawn Cemetery & Crematorium - 285 Graham Rd - Bridgeman Downs, Qld, Australia (Off - Albany Creek Rd, and opposite - Albany Creek Memorial Park).
