Mausoleum crypts

A mausoleum is a free-standing building for the interment of remains in individual positions, known as crypts, housed above ground.

Overview

A mausoleum is a resting place of traditional and cultural significance, and we have a proud history of offering grand public mausolea with above ground crypts for the communities we serve. Across our 19 cemeteries, there are six public mausolea.

Fawkner Memorial Park was home to the first public mausoleum in Australia, the Holy Family Mausoleum, and we continue this tradition today. Our public mausolea are among the largest in the southern hemisphere, and feature the finest architectural details, landscaping and amenities.

Each crypt is sealed with marble or granite, and the name of the deceased is inscribed in stone or memorialised with a bronze plaque. Flower vases and vigil lamps are included, and families may choose to add a cameo or photo to commemorate their loved one.

Information on establishing a private family mausoleum is also available upon request.

Crypt configurations

Single crypts are designed for one individual only.

Double crypts are side-by-side crypts designed for two people with two separate crypt shutters (or fronts).

Tandem crypts are designed for two people, with one joint crypt shutter (or front).

Crypts are laid out over five or six levels in both indoor and outdoor galleries or colonnades.
