The Hemmant Cemetery and Crematorium is an active necropolis with three substantial areas: the original monumental area, a series of large lawn areas and a range of columbaria.

Known as the Tingalpa Cemetery until 1913, the first burial occurred in the monumental area in 1875. In the late 1900s burial plot markers started to be used. After many years of lobbying, lawn cemeteries were laid out with burials commencing in 1952. The crematorium opened in 2001 and there are many columbaria spread throughout the grounds.

Hemmant Cemetery and Crematorium is a part of the 12 cemeteries and three crematoria managed by the Brisbane City Council. It is well maintained and is set amongst stands of eucalypts and wattles near Brisbane's bayside, next to Fleming Road Reserve. It is rich in the social history of Brisbane with many pioneers buried there.
