Our Approach

Olvin Lawson Greaves

Olvin L. Greaves - started North Eastern Funeral Services almost 30 years ago. His initial profession was that of a public health inspector. He also had a passion for arranging and directing funerals, and his love for the industry saw him helping and assisting at various funeral homes across Barbados.

Over time and armed with experience he finally established his own business in 1988. Olvin's mother was incidentally the first funeral service which he undertook. The Christovel Tyrell Chapel, got its name through Tyrell being his mother's maiden name and Christovel being the name of the first person to repose for viewing in the chapel.
