By March 13, 2013June 30th, 2022No Comments

Avoid leaving the burden of your funeral to your family and ensure your last wishes are honoured. The strain of your death can be eased by planning ahead with Catholic Cemeteries and Crematoria. Catholic Cemeteries and Crematoria are the principal Catholic funeral operators in Sydney. They pride themselves on providing a personalised and affordable funeral service built on the values of caring, choice and compassion.
When planning ahead for your own Catholic funeral, there are a number of things one must consider.

Cremation or Burial

The type of burial you choose will depend on your religious beliefs, personal preferences and funeral budget. You and your loved ones can choose between a number of burial, cremation or memorial services to suit your individual tastes and budget. Catholic Cemeteries and Crematoria offer a broad range of graves, crypts, niches and family vaults available to fit your individual requirements. You can also plan ahead by purchasing a double or family plot, to ensure you and your family stay together.


Catholic Cemeteries and Crematoria offer funeral services in six different locations across Sydney. From the rural simplicity of Kemps Creek Cemetery to the centrally located crypts at North Ryde, you can be laid to rest in a location that is significant to you, and close by for families to visit in the future.


At Catholic Cemeteries and Crematoria, you can personalise your funeral service to reflect what is important to you. Nominate your local parish or make a selection from our five chapels at the Catholic Cemetery in Rookwood. Personalise your funeral service with music, flowers, readings and prayers.
Don’t forget to record any other wishes, such as requesting charity donations instead of flowers, and organ donation.
Planning in advance allows families to make joint decisions free of the stress they would be under at the time of death. Many decisions and the purchase of funeral services can be made in advance of need. A family member and the executor should receive a copy of these decisions to ensure that these wishes are known and followed.
