Ballarat Crematorium and Sovereign Chapel

The Ballarat Crematorium is located at the Ballarat New Cemetery, alongside the Sovereign Chapel. Many families choose our comfortable and tasteful facilities as a fitting place to bid farewell to their loved one.

The Ballarat Crematorium began operations in the 1858 following seven years of community argument over its proposed location. Now, set among peaceful established gardens, the Crematorium is surrounded by more than 2000 beautiful rose bushes and a variety of stately trees, shrubs, rocks, niches and peaceful water features available for memorialisation.

Our recently renovated Sovereign Chapel offers a modern and tasteful venue in which to conduct services. Families and friends are able to support each other in the most comfortable setting, complemented by facilities including CD and DVD audiovisual equipment and recording. An organ is also available for use.
