Mt Thompson Crematorium also has a Viewing Room situated next to the West Chapel and there are options for refreshments afterwards but these facilities are limited.

Mt Thompson Crematorium is Brisbane’s oldest crematorium with the first cremation service taking place on the 11th of September 1934.

Mt Thompson Memorial Gardens and Crematorium is located on the southside of Brisbane at 329 Nursery Rd, Holland Park QLD 4121 (see map below),


PLEASE NOTE: This is not the Mt Gravatt Crematorium which is situated in the grounds of the Mt Gravatt Cemetery at Macgregor.

West Chapel

Mt. Thompson Memorial Garden’s heritage-listed West Chapel was constructed in 1934 along with the other main buildings.

The West Chapel’s walls are lined to a height of seven feet in black and dove grey Queensland marble, and floor designed in Terrazzo with marble surrounds.

A flight of two marble steps gave access from the chapel to the chancel, in which a marble catafalque was built to hold the coffin. The West Chapel’s main decorative feature is a copy of the original mural painted by Brisbane artist William Bustard.

East Chapel

Architect Adrian Pooley won an award for his contemporary design of the majestic East Chapel, it’s sleek, modern appearance contrasts distinctly with the art deco West Chapel.

Airy and bright with modern lighting and a tranquil colour scheme, the chapel features a marble and timber podium and contemporary seating.

Avant-garde architect Dr Karl Langer – who was cremated at Mt. Thompson Crematorium after his death in 1969 – conceived the attached enclave and courtyard.

The East Chapel is now fully wheelchair accessible, and includes amenities for people with disabilities and we have also installed the latest audio-visual technology.
