Located on Sewell Street the Brookton Cemetery has been in use since 1908 and includes most denominations and a non-denominational section.
Services can be held in local churches, halls or on site - however note that there are no toilet or refreshment facilities at the Cemetery. Ask your funeral director to provide drinking water during the funeral.
Please contact Shire staff for additional information on:
- purchase of graves for burials
- sinking of graves and re-openings
- permission to erect headstones, monuments or kerbing
- interment of ashes
- plot and niche reservations
- plaques and vases
Burials are usually arranged through a funeral director and can be conducted on any day. Hand-filling can also be arranged.
The Brookton Cemetery does not have a crematorium, however ashes can be interred in the Niche Wall.
Forms are available from the Shire staff.
Monuments can be installed one year after burial. A request is to be made in writing and the company constructing the monument usually does this. There is a fee, and monuments are to be approved by the Principal Works Supervisor.
Families may reserve up to 8 plots at a time – otherwise Council approval is required. All reservations must be paid for at time of reservation.
