Oakdale Funerals Journey

David and Anne Allison are the founders and owners of Oakdale Funerals. They are proud and honoured to provide their community with affordable, professional and highly personalised funeral services, provided with the utmost care and respect of both the living and deceased.
Oakdale funerals came about as a definite calling, with Anne and David’s naturally caring personalities and Anne’s previous nursing experience. In addition, Anne is passionate about her role as a Civil Celebrant, having conducted many ceremonies and providing expert skills in creating and delivering unique and meaningful funeral or wedding ceremonies. She understands the importance of ceremony in honouring and commemorating the lives of loved ones, and how this can greatly comfort those saying goodbye.

David and Anne have both worked for many years in highly respected positions in the Emergency Services, assisting families in crisis and handling complex legal and traumatic situations.
All of these combined qualities and skills see them working in all areas of their funeral business – right from the initial call to the very end of their service.
They appreciate and understand the expectations of their clients and know that in today’s society funeral needs are changing. People are seeking different options.
Clients and colleagues have no hesitation in recommending the services of Oakdale Funerals, knowing families will be provided with all the community expects of an ethical and caring funeral company.
