This series holds a variety of records relating to Beenleigh Cemetery, including the Lawn Cemetery, Columbarium and Monuments sections. A number of records are registers of applications for graves and niches. The information these contain is varied, however typical information includes the name and age of the deceased, date of death, last address, denomination, grave/niche number, next of kin and undertaker details.

Included in the series is a register of graves which records details of persons buried in the Beenleigh Cemetery for the period 1872 - 1961. The earliest known burial for Beenleigh was on 21 January 1872. Information in this register is organised under the following columns: date of application of grave, name of deceased person for whom grave is intended, sex, age, person who made application for the grave - name and address (locality only), religion, late residence of deceased (locality only), rank of deceased (occupation), place of birth (state, country), name of deceased parents (until 1928), name of ship deceased came to colony/state/Australia (until 1936), name of Minister to officiate, date of funeral/burial, number of portion/section (until 1917), number of grave on plan.
