Tanderra Lawn Cemetery
The Lions Club of Chinchilla adopted this massive project in June 1973 with the Chinchilla Shire Council supporting the club by purchasing the ground and providing water to the cemetery. On Saturday 28 June 1976, the Minister for Primary Industries and the Member for Condamine, Hon VB Sullivan MLA, performed the official opening of the Tanderra Lawn Cemetery, with the blessing of the cemetery being undertaken by Father K Costigan.
The first burial in this cemetery was held on 23 January 1977. After burials commenced in the Tanderra Lawn Cemetery, burials continued in both the monumental and the lawn cemeteries, but with the majority of burials being in the lawn cemetery. The Tanderra Lawn Cemetery incorporates two columbarium walls.
In 2016, the Garden of Angels was opened, which provides a dedicated children’s section and a memorial area for babies pre-term to 12 months.
The Tanderra Lawn Cemetery is open for interments.
