Researching your family history can be interesting and fun, but where do you start?

If your relative lived in the Toowoomba Region around the time that they passed away, then there is a good chance they were buried in or their ashes were interred at one of the Toowoomba Region cemeteries. 

Use our Deceased search tool to search local burial records. Here you will find information including the deceased person’s details, the grave’s location, maps to help you find the site if you would like to visit in person, and a photo of the memorial (if available).
