Karrakatta Mausoleum and Ossuary
Western Australia’s first mausoleum, Karrakatta’s garden crypt mausoleum and ossuary is located near the historic heart of Karrakatta Cemetery, just a short walk from Railway Road.
The building, inspired by Mediterranean designs, is crafted from quality materials sourced both locally and overseas, and features many beautiful statues, mosaics and artworks that celebrate the important figures and periods of Christian history.
With the completion of stage five at Karrakatta, the staged construction of the first mausoleum has come to an end. Those families wishing to secure a crypt within the first mausoleum are strongly advised to pre-purchase the crypts that remain.
Covered walkways provide sheltered access to the crypts in the Garden Terraces. The crypts are arranged in four levels – Prayer, Heart, Eye, and Heaven, and are finished in a range of different granite colours.
The Garden Court is a secluded undercover area housed beneath a wide spanning polished timber ceiling. It provides family members with a quiet sanctuary for reflection and the deceased with a fitting place for final rest.
The chapels offer clients a timelessly elegant environment in which to commemorate a loved one. Incorporating comfortable ottomans upon which to rest, a small altar and an air conditioned environment, the chapels provide families with an intimate environment for repose.
The Karrakatta Mausoleum Ossuary provides families with a range of options for remembering and honouring departed loved ones.
The ossuary is available for:
- The placement and memorialisation of cremated remains
- The entombment of skeletal remains previously interred
- The entombment of skeletal remains of a person previously entombed in a mausoleum crypt.
