Near to the red-brick chapel is the memorial garden to both world wars with conifers and rose beds, backed by a stone wall and seating, and a garden with a broken circle of brick piers linked at the top by timber and with trimmed hedge in front. There is aromatic planting at the entrance on the north with several eucalyptus trees and conifers are planted along the boundary railings.
