Nanango is the 4th oldest town in Queensland and consequently has a number of quite early graves. Prior to gazettal of the Nanango Cemetery Reserve this older cemetery adjacent to MHPL 355 and 356 on the Nanango Gold Field was used (1862-1876)

This index encompasses all known burials, including those that were later exhumed and transferred to the Nanango Cemetery. Many of the graves are not marked.
