West End is an old suburb of Townsville, Queensland, situated at the base of Castle Hill. The first community cemetery is located in West End. A reflection of attitudes existing during the time it was in use, research has established that it was ethnically segregated. It has been reported that there are separate areas where, at least, Chinese and Aboriginal deceased were interred.
