Cemetery Information

Full Name
Rookwood Cemetery
New South Wales
Rookwood General Cemetery was established to provide compassionate and equitable end-of-life services to the multicultural Sydney community. Established in 1867, Rookwood is one of the oldest operating cemeteries in Australia and the largest Victorian cemetery in the world. Within our remit are over 130 unique interment grounds, historic and modern memorial areas, culturally specific gardens, four beautiful chapels and a state-of-the art function centre. To further meet needs of families, we customise interment practices to respect different community beliefs. We also offer monumental services, specialising in the construction of new monuments and monumental heritage conservation. Above all, Rookwood’s beautiful setting, along with its historic structures, make it a fascinating place to visit all year round.
