Chapel

The tree-lined avenue leads up to our chapel. The chapel is a thatched stone building with large wooden windows. The interior features old slate floors, wooden benches, wooden blinds, and railway sleeper doors. The chapel is not a consecrated chapel since families from differing religious and cultural persuasions make use of this facility.

A piano and an organ are available. We recommend the use of the PA system, which includes a CD player for larger gatherings. Hire of the PA system may be arranged at the Administration Office.

Bookings for the chapel may be made through a funeral director or at the administration office. Please ensure that you receive a booking confirmation slip which will reflect your time-slot. You are strictly limited to the specified times to obviate clashes with services for other families. For your own records, insist on an official invoice from Fourways Memorial Park, and an official receipt.

Use of the chapel is strictly limited to one hour per service. Time slots for the services are: 10:00; 12:00 and 14:00

Disclaimer

At the sole discretion of the Management of Fourways Memorial Park any hiring of the chapel or any facilities at Fourways Memorial Park may be deemed to be the only booking on any particular day, and the charges specified above may be adjusted accordingly.

Lapa

The catering facility is situated close to the chapel and is available for the family to gather together after the memorial service. In our experience, people tend to mingle at a funeral reception. Usually older persons require seating. Receptions are usually quite informal. The lapa area has been extended to include a large paved area and this is sufficient for catering for approximately 300 people.

Bookings for the lapa may be made through a funeral director or at the administration office. Please ensure that you receive a booking confirmation slip which will reflect your time-slot. You are strictly limited to the specified times to obviate clashes with receptions for other families. For your own records, insist on an official invoice from Fourways Memorial Park, and an official receipt.

The lapa may also be hired by the general public for meetings or functions.

Use of the lapa is strictly limited to one hour per service. Time slots for the services are: 10:00; 12:00 and 14:00

Tent

The tent is available for gatherings of 40 attendees or less. Clients can also arrange for the tent in the case that they wish to extend their accommodation. Kindly note that Fourways Memorial Park can not be responsible for the weather when a client choose to rent this facility and it rains on the day of the service.

Catering

Contact the Administration Office to arrange catering for your reception. Our caterer will provide refreshments for you in accordance with the option selected. Only the freshest ingredients are used in the preparation of dishes. Kindly note that platters vary from time to time, subject to availability of ingredients. Lead time of 48 hours is required in order to assure you of good service. Any specific dietary requirements must be discussed with the Administration office.

Customers who choose to rent the lapa must note that the catering must be supplied by Kay’s Catering. No exceptions.
