How can I find a grave at Oleander Memorial Gardens?

John Peaspanen

Q. How can I find a grave  at Oleander Memorial Gardens near Bradley Creek and Airlie Gardens?  I was there last year and didn’t see  any search aides and my emails to the cemetary went unanswered.

A. Though located locally, Oleander Memorial Gardens, 306 Bradley Drive, is owned and operated by Service Corporation International (SCI), North America’s largest single provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services, based in Houston, Texas.

Jessica S. McDunn of SCI Corporate Communications said, “It is unfortunate that the requests from this visitor were unanswered or answered incorrectly. I just spoke with the general manager, Barbara Tyndall, and she said the visitor simply needs to call, email or stop by the office; and they will be directed to the requested gravesite or provided with a map.”

McDunn added that Tyndall said she receives the emails to the cemetery through the Web site and has not seen one recently requesting to locate a specific gravesite.

To request the location of a gravesite, call (910) 799-1686, email via the Web site www.oleandermemorialgardens.com or stop by the cemetery office at Greenlawn Memorial Park, 1311 Shipyard Blvd. in Wilmington.

Founded in 1962, SCI operates more than 1,400 funeral homes and 380 in 43 states, the District of Columbia, eight Canadian provinces, and Puerto Rico.
