Burial services often involve a visitation, followed by a funeral service in our offices or a place of your choosing, perhaps a place of worship or local hall. The casket is usually present at both these events and can either be open or closed.
We have a comprehensive selection of wood caskets, metal caskets, semi-precious metal caskets, cloth covered caskets, cremation caskets and rental caskets to honour your loved one.
Cremation is an alternative to burial. Cremation can provide more flexibility in service options. Families can choose to have the casket or urn present, a viewing before cremation, a witness cremation, or a delayed service.
A Witness Cremation is a special way you can say goodbye to your loved one and honour their memory. Oliver’s has a private, comfortable waiting room, directly next to the crematorium where you and your loved ones can gather as you say goodbye.
Our service options can be combined and customized to create a service that is best option for you and your family.
Gather with friends and family to remember your loved one’s life together. A Memorial Gathering includes no formal service. A luncheon or other reception option may be included.
Meet at the graveside for a short, formal service before interring the casket or urn.
The opportunity to say goodbye to your loved one can be a very meaningful experience. It can help bring closure and start the healthy grieving process. Viewings may be private or open to the public.
Holding a luncheon reception after the service or during the Memorial Gathering is a wonderful way to come together, offer support, and share memories with your friends and family. A variety of catering options are available when holding the reception in our Tea Room.
Any service options may be livestreamed to include those who cannot be physically present.
Enhance The Service
More than merely a 'goodbye' to the deceased, an obituary is a farewell detailing their life in chronological order. An obituary also serves as notification that an individual has passed away and provides information on any services that are scheduled to take place.
Video Tributes are a wonderful way to honour your loved one's life and cherish your memories of them. Bring in your photos, and Oliver's staff will create a beautiful memorial video to play at the service and take home afterward.
