The Ascension of Jesus Christ Mausoleum

For over a century, Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park has provided space and comfort to the local community in its times of need. In the same spirit of responsiveness, the newly opened Ascension of Jesus Christ Mausoleum offers facilities for above ground burial, in a building that embraces the beauty and hope of the resurrection.

In keeping with its inspiration, themes of transcendence fill this graceful, contemporary building. With its soaring roof that seems to float on sunlight, cool marble wall panels and glorious mosaic vaulted niche above an ascending Christ in bronze, the Ascension of Jesus Christ Mausoleum is a very special place for family and friends to reflect and remember loved ones.

Visitors will recognise a rate depth of Christian symbolism in every design element. From the cruciform design of the building itself, to the remarkable mosaics at each entrance, the result is a building that provides a theme of Hope and spiritually enriching experience for the bereaved.

The vast, yet warm and comforting, marble-clad space is designed to draw the eye upwards to the elegant, curved metal roof supported by specially designed windows.

Celebrating life everlasting

Light streams in from all sides, creating an airy, almost ethereal atmosphere. Directly in front, a glass-walled, vaulted atrium looks out onto a contemplative courtyard beyond. Suspended within is the focal point of the Mausoleum – larger-than- life-sized Jesus Christ Ascending in polished cast bronze, with radiating rays behind his head, which is coated in 24-carat gold. Above him is a spectacular starry sky mosaic.

Personalising your memorial

Elegant and tasteful, each crypt offers a simple and beautiful way to honour your loved ones. The crypt furniture is made of cast bronze and cast glass, and features photo frames, crucifixes and vigil flames with integral flower vases. With indoor and outdoor crypt, two family vaults and granite niches to hold the ashes of loved ones, the Ascension of Jesus Christ Mausoleum gives scope to choose your preferred memorial.
