Ceremonial Venues

To meet the needs of our many community groups, we manage a number of chapels throughout Rookwood Cemetery that cater for memorial services.

All Souls Chapel

Built in 1954, the All Souls Chapel has sweeping views of the Sydney skyline. This classic stained-glassed building can cater for up to 80 people. It is fitted with a 50” plasma screen, audio visual equipment and is suitable for any type of occasion.

Eternal Rest Complex

Within the complex sits the Chapel of Eternal Rest. It is a contemporary, light-filled space featuring a north facing roof top balcony with views across Rookwood. The chapel seats up to 40 people and can cater for a gathering of up to 80 people.

Beit Tephilla

The Beit Tephilla or House of Prayer is situated in the Jewish section of the cemetery. Featuring intricate glass lead lights, the doorway displays elemental symbols unique to Judaism. It holds approximately 20 people and offers an alternative to a graveside service.

For any function held within these venues, chairs and tables are available for hire.
