The passing of a loved one is an emotionally stressful time, particularly when the death is unexpected, tragic or that of a child. It is not uncommon for the people close to the deceased to experience difficulty when called on to make decisions simply because, life as you have known it, has suddenly changed and it can never be the same again.
The choice therefore, of a venue to say final farewells, is of the highest importance because, when everything starts to settle down no-one should feel that they had let their loved one down, after all, a funeral is the last loving thing you can do for someone you care about. At Centenary Memorial Gardens we have created a very special outdoor Chapel serves as an uplifting venue and provides a memorable experience that assists families to grow through the process of grief and healing.
While nothing can take away the pain and sadness of the day you say goodbye, it is comforting to be able to look back in the months to come and say to yourself “Yes, it was a sad day, but I have some pleasant memories of the service and the Chapel and the time of friendship we spent in the refreshment lounge catching up with old friends.” The Garden Chapel provides an ideal area for intimate and informal services. The Chapel is nestled between the Father's Forest and the Forest of Angels and provides views of the surrounding hills and bushland; kangaroo and other wildlife are never far away. a sound system and shade are provided.
For those folk concerned about the weather, a complimentary booking in the Federation Chapel is provided in the event of rain or unsuitable weather conditions.
Following the funeral service you can begin to relax and spend time with family and friends in the Refreshment Lounge and Patio which is just a short stroll through the gardens. Light non-alcoholic refreshments to compliment our range of catering options can be arranged through your funeral director.
