We have three charming and historic chapels and a Columbarium Room, each providing a respectful and fitting environment to hold a funeral service.

Our heritage chapels are an ideal setting for the most memorable of tributes. Whether you are planning an intimate memorial or large service, the beautiful chapels at Rookwood Memorial Gardens and crematorium can accommodate a variety of needs.

All chapels have the latest audio visual technology so you can display the pictures, presentations, videos and play the music that will mean so much to you and your family and ensure the memorial service can be tailored to reflect the life of the individual. Electronic keyboards are also available in each chapel for the accompaniment of vocalists or the playing of traditional hymns.
