Oakvale is a typical large Edinburgh Victorian villa built sometime in the 1870's. Originally intended to be a cathedral, the building has been used as a private residence, a convent and now a funeral home. It is the head office of William Purves, Scotland's largest group of independent funeral directors. Visitors will enjoy Oakvale's magnificent reception rooms with ornate plasterwork, woodwork and fireplaces, as well as an original grand staircase and stained glass windows.
