History of Hanes Lineberry Funeral Home
Henry Hanes, the Lineberry family and their funeral homes and cemeteries have been providing funeral, cemetery and cremation services for Greensboro, North Carolina, and the surrounding areas since 1919. Hanes-Lineberry Sedgefield Funeral Home opened in 1994 and is the first and only funeral home located on a cemetery property in the Triad area.
For the past nine decades, Hanes-Lineberry has kept pace with the progress and development of Greensboro. Our growth has been marked with moves from the original location on West Sycamore and Greene streets in 1919 to West Market and South Eugene streets in 1922 to our main location at North Elm and West Fisher streets in 1968. Additional locations on Vanstory Street and High Point Road were built in 1966, and our Sedgefield location at 6000 High Point Road in 1994.
In 1955, Mrs. Hanes-Bell asked Al Lineberry Sr. to purchase her stock in the funeral home, and since that time, Greensboro has known the firm as Hanes-Lineberry Funeral Home. Albert S. Lineberry Sr. led the funeral home into what would become one of the largest providers of funeral services in the Greensboro area. Under his leadership, the funeral homes have expanded to include three locations and a cemetery/crematory in Greensboro, a funeral home in New Bern and a funeral home in Eden, North Carolina. Mr. Lineberry Sr. became a spokesman of funeral service and was elected president of both the NC Funeral Directors Association and the National Selected Morticians in 1964. He later served in the NC State House of Representative for several terms.
Al Lineberry Jr., along with the caring professionals at Hanes-Lineberry, are proud to uphold the tradition set by Mr. Lineberry Sr. and Mr. Hanes nearly a century ago. Al Lineberry Jr. is a leading member of the funeral service team, and has been an industry leader for years. He, along with his father and brother, Scott, are the only recipients of the Certified Funeral Service Providers in Guilford County. Mr. Lineberry Jr. has been president of the International Order of Golden Rule Funeral Directors as well as many other state, local civic, and business organizations.
