Alex Gow Funerals and Albany Creek Memorial Park Crematorium and Cemetery have been creating funerals for the families of Brisbane for over 55 years. Alex Gow Funerals conducted the very first cremation funeral held at Albany Creek Memorial Park when it opened in 1964.
Previously known as Albany Creek Crematorium, it is the longest established crematorium on the north side of Brisbane and is currently owned by the large multinational corporation, Invocare, this crematorium is situated across the road from the Pinnaroo Crematorium.
Albany Creek Memorial Park has two chapels, both available for burial and cremation services. This allows them to accommodate intimate memorials, as well as large services. Our modern chapels are nestled amongst our tropical parkland and provide the ideal setting for a memorial service.
To ensure each service can be tailored to reflect the life of each individual, each chapel is fully equipped with the latest audio and visual systems for families to play presentations, music, images and video using many popular file formats. Please note if you are planning to create your own photo pictorial please make an appointment a day or 2 before the service to check it is compatible with their audio visual system.
Funeral webcasting is available at both our chapels where the funeral service is live streamed and recorded for family members and friends to be part of the service if they are unable to attend in person.
Our Garden Chapel has a unique design and a relaxing atmosphere. The chapel seats 80 guests and has modern facilities that allow families to personalise and record their service.
Our Lakeview Chapel overlooks our picture perfect, serene lake and beautifully manicured gardens. With seating for 100 people it provides an ideal setting for a memorial service.
Overlooking the beautiful landscaped gardens and with views of our lake, the Bridgeman Lounge offers a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
It is the ideal setting for an after-funeral gathering, conveniently available for families Monday to Saturday.
The Bridgeman Lounge offers a range of catering options and also provides for special dietary requirements. This licensed venue is a modern function centre that has two rooms that can be converted to one large room accommodating functions of up to 150 guests.
Albany Creek Memorial Park offers the convenience of an on-site café, which is open Monday to Friday. The café is a relaxing place to have a light meal and refreshments with friends and family. There is also a florist available next to the café.
