The Friends of God’s Acre Inc. was formed in 1991, through Sam Parker with the support of the Lions
Club of Acacia Ridge and Algester and the Rotary Club of Acacia Ridge. The Friend’s main focus was
the God’s acre Restoration Project in 2009, for the sesquicentenary of Queensland statehood.
Naturally, as a private colonial cemetery, it has fallen in with the pioneer historiography which was
the centrepiece of the 1959 centenary.
