Francis Lookout & Cemetery was developed, with burials, from 1863 to 1966. The cemetery was dedicated when the Francis family’s youngest son, Clement, died in 1863. The last of the family to be buried here was Mary Francis, wife of the Francis’ eldest son, Dick, in 1937. In 1930, the Brisbane City Council took direct control of thirteen of Brisbane’s cemeteries. At this time Frances Lookout was under the control of private trustees. After negotiations at request of the trustees, formal council resumption occurred in 1934.
