Guildford Cemetery was first established in the late 1800s. Today the cemetery remains the chosen resting place of many people wishing to be buried in a traditional setting, alongside some of Western Australia’s most notable pioneers.
The Heritage Council of Western Australia, recognising the cemetery’s historical significance, has listed Guildford on the Register of Heritage Places.
Traditional and denominational burial locations are available at Guildford Cemetery.
Memorial options range from ground niches to rose bushes, niche walls and landscaping features.
The 168-crypt Swan Region Garden Mausoleum is also located at Guildford Cemetery.
Guildford Funeral Protocol
Please check with the Pinnaroo Office or your Funeral Director as to the location of the burial. There are several entrances with ample visitor parking nearby.
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 Board’s 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.
