Chapel of Rest

Our air-conditioned private chapel of rest provides a comforting and peaceful setting in which to spend some precious final moments with your loved one. The chapel can also be used for small funeral ceremonies as it can sit up to approximately 60 mourners.

Say Farewell in a Calm and Peaceful Setting

The opportunity to say farewell to a loved one in the privacy of the chapel of rest can be a comforting experience. It can also help provide closure. The chapel can be decorated with personal items, flowers and photographs to reflect the personality of your loved one. In addition, you are welcome to display religious symbols as required.

We also offer private family rooms which provide extra space to grieve in privacy.
