Brookton Cemetery

Located on Sewell Street on the edge of the Brookton Townsite, the Brookton Cemetery has been in use since 1908 and includes most denominations and non-denominational sections. 

Services can be held in local Churches, Halls or on site - however, please note, there are no bathroom or refreshment facilities at the Cemetery. Ask your funeral director to provide drinking water during the funeral service. 

Please contact the Shire Administration centre for additional information on the following: 

  • Purchase of grave sites for burial. 
  • Sinking of graves and reopenings. 
  • Permission to erect headstones, monuments and/or kerbing. 
  • Internment of ashes to an existing grave or niche wall. 
  • Burial Plot and Niche Wall reservations. 
  • Plaques and vases. 


Burials are usually arranged through a Funeral Director and can be conducted on any day. 

Hand filling of the grave can also be arranged. 

Niche Wall

The Brookton Cemetery does not have a crematorium, however, ashes can be interred in the Niche Wall. 

Forms are available from the Shire Administration Centre.


Monuments can be installed one year after the burial. A request is to be made in writing and the company constructing and installing the monument usually does this. There is a fee and monuments are to be approved by the Shire prior to installation. 


Families may reserve up to 8 (eight) burial plots at any one time - otherwise Council approval is required. All reservations must be paid for at the time of reservation. 


Please contact the Shire of Brookton Administration Centre for all necessary forms.
