Committal and Memorial Services
Swan Point has three beautiful chapels, which may be adapted for use by all religious faiths for funerals, memorial services and committal services. On occasion, the chapels are used as a substitute for graveside services when needed, such as during inclement weather.
The original Historic Chapel, built in 1932, is located in the administration building. It is separated from the administrative offices by a vestibule and has a separate outside entrance.
The Redwood Chapel
A newer chapel, located in the Redwood complex, was completed in 2006. It was designed to emulate the Historic Chapel with large arched, oak beams framing the ceiling and an intricate pattern of limestone tiles covering the floor. The Redwood Chapel has a slightly more contemporary feel than the Historic Chapel and features handcrafted furnishings that provide a warm Arts and Crafts style environment. Situated in the southwest corner of the cemetery, it was built to accommodate the increasing number of chapel services being held at the cemetery.
Designed by Lyn Hovey Studios of Boston, beautifully crafted, stained glass windows depicting nature-themed scenes, adorn the Redwood Chapel. Equally as beautiful, the stained glass windows in the Historic Chapel were created by Charles J. Connick Associates, also of Boston. Each chapel has a seating capacity of 100 people and both feature fine, classical organs for which an organist can be provided.
The Chapel of Hope and Memory
Swan Point’s newest chapel, The Chapel of Hope and Memory, is located in the new crematory building, which opened in 2014. Furnished in a warm, contemporary style, it can accommodate up to 80 guests on individual chairs, which can be arranged to suit the needs of the family, allowing for flexibility. The chapel provides a lovely dignified space for committal services as part of the cremation process and may also be used for traditional memorial services when needed.
The Historic Chapel, Chapel of Hope and Memory and Gray Coale Reception Hall are interconnected and offer audio-visual capabilities for families wishing to include music or a memorial video during the service or reception. Each of our three chapels may be reserved for use before or after interment or cremation by contacting us at the main office.
