Jackson is a small country town set off the Warrego Highway. The tiny cemetery was visited by John Arthur in June 2007. He made digital images of all visible inscriptions and found memorials dated from 1910 to 2003. The list of inscriptions was compiled with reference to the images and to the Queensland BDM online facility for additional information.

The cemetery is well maintained with no signs of vandalism.

Jackson Post Office opened by July 1908 (a receiving office had been open from 1887) and closed in 1988. At the 2006 census, Jackson had a population of 171.
