Redland City Council has recently expanded the Redland Bay Cemetery, with works expected to provide 288 new burial plots by the end of August 2021.
Mayor Karen Williams says the work would address a shortage of burial capacity and improve internment options available within Redlands Coast.
“Cleveland Cemetery is nearly full and many of our residents would like the opportunity to memorialise their loved ones with monuments and headstones,” Cr Williams said.
Deputy Mayor and Councillor for Division 6 Julie Talty said many people had registered their interest in buying a burial plot within the Redlands Coast region.
“Redland Bay Cemetery has also been approaching capacity but will soon be able to offer more plots as well as vaults, monuments, headstones and lawn burials,” she said.
Meanwhile, the upgrade to historic Cleveland Cemetery is on track to completion this August (weather permitting) with a new lawn burial section and columbarium niche walls expected to open before the end of the year.
