Burial & Cremation Services
With over 90 cultural and religious groups using Rookwood to farewell their loved ones, we provide unique burial services that respect the different beliefs of our customers.
Choosing between a burial and a cremation is a very personal decision that is often influenced by a person’s religious or cultural beliefs. As a result, at Rookwood General Cemeteries Reserve Trust (RGCRT) we offer a range of unique lawn and monumental areas to cater for burials and the interment of ashes. We also offer a mausoleum that incorporates crypts, family vaults and memorial niches.
For families opting for a traditional in-ground or mausoleum burial, this involves placing the deceased in a coffin, casket or shroud. Depending on the specific area chosen for your loved one's burial, we offer a range of different burial types. This enables us to meet the religious and cultural needs of the different groups that we work with.
Ash Interment & Memorials
RGCRT has a number of ash interment and memorial options for families opting for cremation, including traditional Niche Walls and discrete Decorative Gardens. Personalised memorial plaques are available for each of these locations.
Furthermore, if there are family members interred in one of our burial areas, these allotments can be used for the interment and commemoration of successive family generations.
To discuss which options are best for you and your loved one, our caring Client Services team is available to help. Please contact us for a personalised consultation.
