New Natural Memorial Area
This new and tranquil area of the cemetery was conceived to provide families an environmentally-friendly burial option for the ashes of loved ones within the setting of Australian native plants.
Burial sites are indicated with a bronze leaf plaque.

San Spirito Chapel
The magnificent San Spirito Chapel – designed by the priest-architect Monsignor John Cyril Hawes – is located on the grounds of the Geraldton Cemetery. Whilst the building is no longer used for funeral services, the historic building lends its unique character and appeal to the ambience of the grounds for all to enjoy.
The first concept drawings of the Chapel were dated September 1935 and it was completed in June 1936. More information about the Chapel.
The Contemplative Seat
The Contemplative Seat is a short stroll from the crematorium. The area gives mourners a tranquil space to break away from the congregation for a quiet moment of reflection, condolence or peace. An idea initiated by board member Don Golding in 2017, the area is a thoughtful addition to the cemetery and is hoped to bring people more freedom during difficult times. Surrounded by native plants and the natural scents of the Australian environment, the space is hoped to calm and ground.
