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.

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.
