Rookwood, chapel

The Sacred Heart Catholic Chapel in Rookwood Necropolis, in the western suburb of Rookwood. The chapel was built in 1928, when the railway line had been extended and Mortuary Station Number Three was built nearby. The funeral train services were discontinued in 1948. The chapel wasfully restored in 2011 and is used again for funeral services.

  1. What a lovely little chapel. I bet that rose window is pretty from the inside when it is bright outside.
