About

At Hainstock's Funeral Home & Crematorium, we have served the Edmonton, Alberta, community since the 1900s. We believe that every funeral service should be as unique as the person being honoured and strive to create meaningful and memorable tributes.

Let's celebrate life

Reception room at Hainstock's Funeral Home & CrematoriumThere are thousands of ways to celebrate a life. At Hainstock's, our imaginative team excels at crafting one-of-a-kind memorials that celebrate a person's passions and individuality. Did she love to bust a move on the dance floor? We can host a disco-themed event with a DJ spinning the biggest hits of the 70s. Guests would be encouraged to don their grooviest get-ups, of course. Was he an avid angler? We can display his prized fishing poles in the chapel and help you create a video slideshow that showcases his best catches. And if you'd prefer to have a more traditional funeral service, we're happy to that as well. We're all about meeting your needs and wishes.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We operate a private, on-site crematory and work with trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

History

Originally founded in 1919 and known as Wainwright & Jackson, our funeral home was purchased by Robert Hainstock in 1922. At that time, Robert, his wife Bertha, and their 2 daughters, Candace and Audrey, ran the business.

Following Robert's death in 1928, the business continued under Bertha's management until her passing in 1951. At that point, their daughters assumed ownership until 1974. Hainstock’s Funeral Home & Crematorium was then purchased in 1978 by Ray and Mary Yaremkevich and Ken and Gail Papirny.

Today, we are part of the Dignity Memorial network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers. In the spring of 1994, our funeral home moved to a larger facility—where you can find us today—to better serve families throughout Edmonton.
