Royal Oak Mausoleum
The Royal Oak Mausoleum was the first and remains the only community mausoleum on Vancouver Island. This majestic building featuring grand marble and granite galleries provides the option of above ground casket entombment in dry and secure crypts or cremation niche interment in stunning glass front columbariums.
The impeccably maintained Art Deco design of the Garden Chapel makes the chapel one of the most striking buildings in Royal Oak Burial Park. Everything about the chapel—from the seating, to the light fixtures, to the amber-coloured leaded glass, to the distinctive exterior—has been lovingly preserved or restored since the building was erected in 1937. It was recognized as a Historic Place of British Columbia in 1997 and is included on the Saanich Heritage Registry as having significant community heritage value.
The Garden Chapel has been a comforting setting for memorial services for many generations of Greater Victoria families. This truly unique, intimate and beautiful place to honour and celebrate loved ones is available for services to this day.
