Fremantle Cemetery Chapels

Fremantle’s two chapels, the East Chapel and West Chapel, are designed in a bold modernist style with significant undercover areas to accommodate larger crowds. A small outdoor committal area is offered for smaller informal services.

Mourners can congregate at the main driveway and then follow the hearse to the chapels or, for those who would prefer, the hearse can be met at the chapel itself.

The Chapel Facilities Summary Table shows the approximate capacity of each chapel. 

Multimedia screens are mounted in both chapels. Both have external screens to cater for particularly large crowds.

Large condolence lounges are located alongside each chapel.

If you would like to view any of the chapels, please contact our staff to arrange a time. Viewings are scheduled around existing funeral bookings.
 

The West Chapel and Condolence Lounge

​The West Chapel is the largest of the three chapels at Fremantle Cemetery, accommodating up to 220 people seated and up to a further 250 people standing. It is a bright naturally lit chapel and provides a serene ambience for a committal service.
