Lawn burial area at Fremantle CemeteryView the Fremantle Cemetery Facilities Brochure.

Fremantle Cemetery was established in 1898. Bounded by Leach Highway, Carrington Street, Sainsbury Road and Stock Road the cemetery occupies 46 hectares of land and is a place of major historical significance.

Fremantle Cemetery is equipped with a crematorium and three beautiful chapels. The facilities cater for a culturally diverse population and offer a wide range of monumental and lawn burial areas and memorial gardens.

The opening of the Fremantle Mausoleum in 2005 has further expanded the range of options available to families.


Flower and Ornament Policy


The Metropolitan Cemeteries Board is committed to maintaining its cemeteries and memorial gardens to a high standard.

Following an extensive community consultation exercise, a revised policy was developed in 2011.

We thank our visitors for observing the conditions described in the policy.

Whilst artificial tributes do have an environmental impact and the placement of fresh tributes is preferred, the Board recognises that many families prefer artificial tributes and, as such, their placement is respected as being an integral part of the grieving process.

When placing new tributes, we would ask that plastic wrapping  be removed and withered/weathered tributes be placed within one of the rubbish bins located throughout the cemeteries. 

The Flower and Ornament Policy can be downloaded here. Alternatively, please contact Client Services on 1300 793 109 if you prefer to have a copy mailed to you.

Please be advised that the collection point for tributes that has been removed to comply with the Board's flower and ornamentation policy is located at the rear of the cemetery at the end of Samson Avenue. This is highlighted on the overall map of Fremantle Cemetery which can be downloaded here.
