Burial Options

Choose the traditional burial that suits you

Burial Above Ground

Following the European tradition for above ground burials, families can choose a family vault or crypt within our cemeteries landscaped grounds at Rookwood Catholic Cemetery and Liverpool cemeteries. Or, you may prefer to be within the inspiring and modern Mausoleum of the Resurrection at Rookwood Catholic Cemetery with its beautiful chapel and reflective pool.

The difference between a crypt and a vault is that a vault is a large free-standing building to be shared by family members and contains various shelf configurations. A crypt can be purchased as a single or double and are housed within a building of other crypts.

A traditional section grave includes the grave covering as well as the headstone and can be made from various types of stone if required.
