Part of making arrangements for a funeral service is giving families and friends the opportunity to say farewell together – this may be a celebration of life, an honouring of memories or simply an opportunity to gather together to reflect upon the life of a loved one.
Chapels are traditionally used for cremation services but can also be used for burial services in which mourners congregate at the chapel for a service prior to following the hearse to the burial plot.
Many families don’t realise that cremation services at MCB cemeteries, regardless of whether you have booked them to occur at a Funeral Director’s premises, actually include an allocation of chapel time at the cemetery.
A viewing room is provided should families wish to remain with the casket and witness its committal to the cremator. Please advise your funeral director in advance should you wish to utilise the viewing room.
The Fremantle Chapel Facilities shows the approximate capacity for each chapel. If you would like to view any of the chapels, please contact our staff to arrange a time. Viewings can be scheduled around existing funeral bookings.
Light food and refreshments are available at the Fremantle Café. This café is located adjacent the Carrington Street carpark. If you are planning to invite guests home for a post funeral wake, Fremantle Café will be pleased to prepare food platters to collect after the service.
