Back to Top
The Cemetery Act 1965, which repealed Section 75 of the Municipal Institutions Act 1864, empowered the Governor-in-Council to appoint trustees to hold land in trust for the establishment or purpose of a public cemetery.

A reserve for a cemetery of about 1 acre at Park Ridge, Cedar Creek was proclaimed and Trustees appointed on 14 April 1910. The reserve was part of portion 19, the property of D. Veivers, and burials date from approximately 1889.

Cemetery trustees had powers to enclose the land granted in trust for cemetery purposes and were responsible for the administration, upkeep and maintenance of the cemetery. Rules, regulations, accounts, trustee appointments and notification of closing of the cemetery were required to be published in the Government Gazette.

Reference to the date when Beaudesert Shire Council took over as Trustee of the Park House cemetery has not been located. An approximate date has been determined from the grave register.
