Community & Family

On Saturday 5th June, 1886, Kate Mary Smith submitted an ‘Undertakers’ Notice’ in The Brisbane Courier informing “The inhabitants of Brisbane and surrounding districts that the long-established business so successfully carried on by the late Jno.Smith, as undertaker, will in future be carried on by his widow”. This was K.M. Smiths’ first sharing of ‘News & Events’ with the community and the families we respectfully continue to share our news and event items with today.

151 Year Celebration!
A large event to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the official opening of the South Brisbane Cemetery (known by many as Dutton Park Cemetery) was organised for May 2020 but sadly, due to the pandemic, had to be cancelled. K.M.Smith was proud to be invited to attend a somewhat smaller rescheduled 150th + 1 celebration held at the cemetery on Saturday 8th May. About 150 attended the event held by the ‘Families of the South Brisbane Cemetery’. The day was highlighted by the unveiling of a commemorative marker and talks, workshops, self-guided discovery tours and scavenger and symbol hunts helped make the day a wonderful success.

As much as funerals are about planning and paying attention to detail, sometimes the unplanned is what makes a service even more memorable...like having your colleagues from the Rural Fire Brigade turn up to the funeral in their work truck as a mark of respect for a much loved mate. ...
