History

Also known as Walloon Cemetery, Walloon Scrub Cemetery, Kircheim Cemetery and Kirchheiner Cemetery, the land now known as Haigslea Cemetery was donated to the adjoining Lutheran Church by Mr W H Loose. The cemetery remained under the control of the Lutheran Church until a Cemetery Trust was formed in 1913.

The Queensland Government Gazette announced an 'Order in Council on the 9th day of May, 1918' that set aside land as a permanent reserve for a cemetery.  Kirchheiner Cemetery, as it was then known, also became known as Haigslea Cemetery and was placed '...under control of Johann Koch, John Henry Claus, Ernest Schubel, Harry Heiner and George Henry Siemon'.  Burials in the Kirchheiner Cemetery took place between September 1916 and August 1959.

In 1959, the Moreton Shire Council was appointed as trustee and at the Health and Community Services meeting held on the 25th September 1990, the cemetery was renamed Haigslea Lawn Cemetery.
