Rookwood Catholic Cemetery

Rookwood Catholic Cemetery has been serving the Catholic community since 1867. The historic cemetery reflects the multi-cultural history of Sydney with grand sandstone headstones of early settlers, cultural community lawns through to contemporary garden niches.

The cemetery is home to the picturesque St Michael the Archangel Chapel through to the modern Mary, Mother of Mercy Chapel with Sydney’s only Catholic crematorium. The grounds are continually renewed with tranquil landscaping and there are outdoor religious artworks from the granite sculptures at the Way of the Cross to the bronze statues throughout the cemetery’s crypt collection.
