History

Karrakatta Cemetery Board was established on 9 January, 1897 with the proclamation of the Cemeteries Act. The first burial at the new cemetery, which succeeded earlier cemeteries at Alma St, Fremantle and at East Perth, took place on 24 April 1899.

A crematorium was introduced in 1937 and a traditional Mausoleum was opened in 1995. In 1988, following a review of cemetery management by a Government Working Party, the Karrakatta Cemetery came under the control of the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board.
