Cemetery History books

Cemeteries are a tangible touchstone to our heritage. The people of 19th-century Brisbane now lie in these beautiful burial grounds, and their histories are our history. The Inside History range of Cemetery History books explores the lives of these people, as well as the stories behind some of our oldest cemeteries.
