Rookwood Memorial Gardens is a cremation memorial garden only. We offer a range of memorial options, from a simple rose garden to a traditional wall niche, or a family memorial garden amongst our beautiful and peaceful setting. Whatever your choice we can help you tailor a memorial from our wide range of options to reflect the needs of each individual and family.
As Rookwood Memorial Gardens was designed and intended as a crematorium, we unfortunately do not provide burial services and memorials. We can recommend sister parks around the Greater Sydney region that are able to offer burial services. Information on these locations can be found below:
A memorial offers the reassurance that what began in the past will continue into the future. Losing a loved one has a great emotional impact on us. When dealing with loss, many and varied issues can arise. One of the most fundamental is how to keep the memory alive beyond the funeral service. Memorials provide families and friends with a tangible source of comfort in the form of an everlasting place of remembrance in tribute to the life of their loved one. Families take great solace in visiting memorials as they represent an everlasting reminder of times shared together.
All of our memorials are set amongst our manicured and landscaped grounds and are tended to by our skilled grounds team all throughout the year.
