The Crematorium Chapel is an alternative to the traditional church or funeral home setting. Located in the beautiful grounds of Glenmorus Memorial Gardens, it looks out on to the serene native bush of the surrounding hills.
The chapel has seating for 120 people, standing room for a further 30 people inside and space for another 50 in the covered outside area.
A memorial is an enduring tribute to a person’s life. It provides comfort and support to families and friends as they reflect on the life that was, and a focal point for current and future generations to remember, pay their respects and celebrate those who have preceded them.
Our beautiful memorial gardens offer a serene environment in a tranquil bushland setting nestled into the surrounding hills. You can choose a resting place for your loved one in exquisitely manicured gardens, beside tranquil waterways or in natural parkland areas.
Arrangements for the day of placement are entirely up to you. You can choose to hold a service in our chapel before the memorial placement. This can be a formal occasion with a minister/celebrant or a relaxed personal time to share memories. Or you can choose a formal or informal service at the memorial site itself.
