In many countries around the world, mausoleums are popular for their ability to commemorate and honour the dead in a place specifically designed for dignified repose.
The Metropolitan Cemeteries Board (MCB) has built five beautiful public mausoleums, each with its own unique style and character, which allows the Western Australian community access to this distinguished form of final rest.
We invite you to visit our mausoleums at your leisure or you can download the Mausoleum Information Brochure.
For those with Italian or Croatian family members with limited English language skills, the Board has developed brief summary guides in both languages. These provide a broad overview of the mausoleums and can be requested via telephone or by downloading below:
Crypts at all mausoleums can be purchased at the time of bereavement (at-need) or can be purchased prior to bereavement (pre-need). To ensure a reservation in a preferred location, pre-purchasing is advised. Please contact Client Services on 1300 793 109 to arrange a complimentary selection appointment.
Crypts may be purchased prior to the time of need and will be reserved by the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board until required. Pre-purchasing gives your family the peace of mind of knowing that your crypt is available for the future in a safe and secure facility. The entombment fees may be pre-paid or otherwise the fee will be payable at the time of entombment. If you are interested in securing a crypt for the future, our Client Services staff will be pleased to show you the available options.
Each crypt or ossuary compartment is sold with a certificate of entitlement. This provides you with exclusive entitlements to the crypt.
The Grant of Right of Entombment is granted for a period of 25 years and can be extended to 50 years on application. The 25-year tenure will commence upon purchase of the Grant of Right of Entombment.
The Metropolitan Cemeteries Board is committed to maintaining its cemeteries and memorial gardens to a high standard.
We thank our visitors for observing the guidelines described in the Flower and Ornament Policy regarding the placement of flowers and ornaments within the mausoleums, which are as follows:
