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.

Brendan Moar, Landscape Gardener and Television Presenter, discusses the importance of memorials and the options available to you.

A memorial is a place that can be visited as often as one feels the need. For some, special occasions such as birthdays or Christmas hold particular significance. Others may find the ritual of visiting after church on Sunday or stopping by on the way home from work, fulfils their needs. Whatever the reason, a memorial can become a very powerful place of reflection, bringing comfort to individuals at times when the challenges life can present become overwhelming.

We often forget about how our loved ones may have influenced the lives of people other than family. That is why a memorial can hold as much significance for a friend or colleague as it does for family. For future generations, memorials provide a very important genealogical record of our families and community because tradition is important to all of us.

A moment of reflection can bring back a lifetime of memories.
