This cemetery is located in Franklin Lane off the Beaudesert-Nerang Road at Wonglepong. Until recently it was managed by the Beaudesert Shire Council. This Council has now been amalgamated into the Scenic Rim Regional Council.

According to information sourced from the Queensland Archives, prior to 1914 this was a private cemetery, part of the property of Sarahvale owned by the Franklin family. In approximately November 1914, Ann Ford Franklin donated the land Tamborine Shire Council, who were at that stage the local council, for use as a public cemetery.

The cemetery was referred to as the Sarahvale cemetery and was later called Wanglepong then the Wonglepong, cemetery. It has also been referred to as the Lower Canungra Cemetery.

This is a transcription of all headstones was completed on 25 Apr 2008. The earliest graves noted were of Franklin family members in 1895. There were at least three unmarked graves.
