Included amongst the graves are those of many of the early German missionaries and their families, and that of former Queensland Premier Sir James Dickson (1898-9).- No new grave sites are available. Ashes interments are available in existing family graves. Burials in existing family graves may also be available, where the grave still has space or the last burial was more than 30 years ago. Family grave re-use is only available to direct descendants of the people already buried in the grave or those related to the burial right holder. - https://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/facilities-recreation/parks-venues/cemeteries/nundah-cemetery - https://environment.ehp.qld.gov.au/heritage-register/detail/?id=600271 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nundah_Cemetery
