Karori Small Chapel

Karori Small Chapel

The Karori Small Chapel is our favourite ‘fit for purpose’ space in Wellington. Situated in a private setting within the grounds of Karori Cemetery, the chapel, which seats 24 with some standing room, is the perfect venue for an intimate, private funeral gathering for either cremations or burials.

Often, we’ll suggest families attend a committal service in the Small Chapel the day after a larger funeral elsewhere. They appreciate the opportunity to be more informal and relaxed, to speak freely amongst their closest friends and whanau.

It has a good sound system able to play CD’s or from an iPod. It has excellent access and parking is easy.


Drive through the main gates of Karori Cemetery off Old Karori Road, past the Memorial Rose Garden on your left and then the Service Men’s section to the chapel on your right.

You can access the Main Chapel up the steps and path to the right of the building.
