I, Jillian the Funeral Director at Mayfair Funeral Services Perth can with your help you select the most appropriate cemetery for either a burial or a cremation for your loved one in Perth. Firstly your family will need to make the decision if your loved ones wishes would be for a Cremation Funeral Service or a Burial Funeral Service. Then the location of the funeral service can be selected and the booking for the time and date at the appropriate location can be made with the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board.
Of the six cemeteries in the Perth Metropolitan area, three of these locations have the crematorium at the cemetery allowing the cremation committal to occur at the recessional, (the end of the funeral service). There is then no need for your loved one to be transported again to the crematorium. The Chapels have been purpose built for Cremation Funeral Services, they have a committal catafalque (or bier) and each chapel is complemented by a private condolence lounge. All of the six cemeteries in Perth listed allow for a graveside service and burial committal as long as the legal requirements have been met.
• Fremantle Cemetery (burial and cremation committal at this location)
• Karrakatta Cemetery (burial and cremation committal at this location)
• Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park Cemetery (burial and cremation committal at this location)
• Guildford Cemetery (burial committal only at this location)
• Midland Cemetery (burial committal only at this location)
• Gnangara Aboriginal Cemetery (burial committal only at this location)

- Where a funeral service may be held at one location such as a local church, then the hearse and mourners cortege to the cemetery chapel for a Cremation Committal.
Some families at a later date after the cremation service has taken place, choose to scatter the ashes of a loved one in a place that was special to the deceased or within the cemetery grounds. We can assist in gaining the correct permissions if required, providing a Funeral celebrant, Chairs and marquee, stationary, outdoor sound systems.
However, your family can choose to make these arrangments yourselves for a memorial service, you do not need to be a Funeral Director. Just request permission to do so from the location you would like and then make your arrangments as you see fit for your family.
