About Us

Rookwood Memorial Park West Chapel

Rookwood Memorial Gardens and Crematorium is Sydney's oldest facility and is the premier crematorium in Sydney's west.

Rookwood Memorial Gardens is the most historic, beautiful and tranquil place in Sydney's west and has been a place where families have been able to come to commemorate and celebrate their past and connections ever since 1932. 

Our gardens are a place of natural, landscaped beauty maintained by dedicated and highly trained staff. We are a place where peace and privacy are cherished and will always be respected.

Funeral Venues

We have four charming and historic chapels, each one a respectful and fitting place to hold a funeral service. Each chapel has up to date AV equipment so you can display the pictures, presentations, videos and play the music that will mean so much to you and your guests. Organs are also available for the playing of traditional hymns.


Located in our Administration Centre, our Concierge is available to help all guests to Rookwood Memorial Gardens. Our Concierge can assist you by:

  • locating a loved one memorialised on our grounds
  • giving you directions to a chapel to attend a funeral service
  • answering general questions about Rookwood Memorial Gardens, and

The Concierge Office is open from:
