In 1922, the District of Saanich and the City of Victoria partnered to create the Board of Cemetery Trustees, a not for profit corporation, to operate Royal Oak Burial Park. Our bottom line, first and foremost, is about helping people.
For more than 90 years we have faithfully served the region, meeting its changing needs while lovingly maintaining one of the largest, most picturesque cemeteries in Western Canada. Royal Oak Burial Park today offers comprehensive burial, cremation, funeral and memorial services and has been a leader in modernizing the industry — offering new services such as green burial and creating Little Spirits Garden, to recognize and honour the loss of pregnancies and infants.
“Visited the Park on Mother’s Day – thought it was a wonderful touch – giving out carnations. The Park is beautiful, well-kept and tidy.”
