Committed to you

As funeral traditions have evolved in the 115 years we've been in business, our commitment to high standards of service remains unchanged, while our service options have expanded to meet your needs.

We will find the right flowers, the best musicians, and mementoes that help tell your special story. The list of personalization possibilities is endless.

Signage at Cruikshank's Halifax Funeral HomeCruikshank's Halifax Funeral Home has been providing funeral and memorial services, as well as cremations in the Halifax community since 1902. We first operated in a location on Maynard Street. Then the funeral home moved to Robie Street. We are now located at 2666 Windsor St.

A long-standing pillar of the community, Cruikshank's was among the funeral homes that served families who lost loved ones in the 1912 sinking of the Titanic and the 1917 Halifax Explosion.

"Everything about the funeral and graveyard services offered by Cruikshank's Funeral Home for my late father was truly exceptional and very much appreciated. The way the funeral director and staff treated our family was beyond our expectations and we can't thank them enough for their kindness and consideration at this difficult time."

"We would recommend Crookshanks because they welcomed us with open arms were very kind and didn't pressure us so compassionate so knowledgable so understanding and loving very calm conversations had with Lori Doucette and Leah made us feel so comfortable in the situation that was overwhelming they really took us under their wing and made us feel cared for"

"Cruickshanks staff I talked to were very professional and helpful especially where this horrific corona virus is requiring businesses like yours to have to find alternative ways, with non in person contact, to deal with grieving families. In this case, I am representing the family of dear Bernadette, you created the best process possible for a graceful 'transition' in this difficult time. We are most thankful to you."
