A tree-lined avenue leads up to our chapel, 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.
Both a piano and an organ are available for chapel services. 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. An overhead projector is also available at a small hiring fee for DVD presentations.
Bookings for the chapel may be made through a funeral director or at the administration office. 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.
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

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
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.
Contact the Administration Office to arrange catering for your reception. Our caterer will provide refreshments for you in accordance with the option selected.
