Thank you Xavier and Jean.  The warnings have disappeared and the MMrest with #-6 is perfectly placed on the E line of the staff.

The revised version looks like this:

\score {

  \new Staff {
    \time 4/4
    \clef treble
    g'1^\markup{Fl 1} |
          { \voiceTwo
          \once \override MultiMeasureRest.staff-position = #-6
          R1 }
            \oneVoice \new CueVoice {
                r4^"Oboe cue" \stemUp g'8([ a'] ~ a'2) |
    r2^\markup{Fl 1} bes'8->\sfz\>([ a'] ~ a'4\!\p) ~ |


Thanks again,

Replace your c'1\rest with


In case the positioning of the multi-measure rest is not satisfactory you can use
\once \override MultiMeasureRest.staff-position = #-6
as documented in NR 1.2.2 Writing rests > Full measure rests
