To meet NSW Public Health requirements, the following restrictions apply to people while at our Memorial Gardens:
- Under tightened restrictions announced on Friday 9 July, funerals are limited to 10 people in total.
- People aged over 12 years must wear a face mask at all indoor areas, including our offices and chapels, and at organised outdoor events until further notice. For more information about face masks, please see the NSW Health website.
- A 1 person per 4 square metres rule applies to all indoor and outdoor settings, including funerals.
We have two chapels at Wollongong Memorial Gardens which can be used for funeral and memorial services. These spaces can also be hired for private and community gatherings.
Our chapels are well-lit and tastefully decorated to provide a calming, reflective environment for your service.
Both chapels are located at the end of the main driveway. They are wheelchair accessible, and two accessible parking spaces are available near the chapel entrance.
Our main chapel (pictured above) can seat up to 180 guests. We can also arrange standing room and external speakers for additional guests if needed.
The family chapel provides a more intimate setting, ideal for smaller services. It has seating for up to 60 guests. We can also arrange standing room and speakers for additional guests if needed.
Information for hirers
Both of our chapels have audio visual equipment to help you personalise your service with music and images.
Presentations and music can be played through USB or DVD, or you can play music separately through a USB, iPod or CD.
We recommend that you test your presentation and music at least 24 hours before the service to make sure it will work on our equipment. Please call us on (02) 4227 7780 to arrange a test-run.
We can make a complimentary recording of your service. Please talk to your Funeral Director before the service if you would like a recording made.
Please note, we are not able to live stream services.
