In this page, we take a look at funeral homes and service providers in Calgary and in the nearby communities of Airdrie, Cochrane, and Okotoks.

With virtually all of the other city specific funeral pricing guides provided by InMemory, we have managed to obtain details on over 80% of the funeral homes in the specific city covered.  However, as provincial regulations in Alberta do not require funeral homes to provide price lists to consumers upon request (Alberta is the only province outside of the Maritimes provinces not to have this legislation), the ratio for Calgary is not as high as we would normally like to see.   Moreover, a significant percentage of the 14 funeral homes are from one funeral home chain.  With that said, we still have information on 14 funeral service providers with normal levels of pricing variances.

This guide on funeral homes in and near Calgary is made up of 3 different parts:

  • Refresher on how to use InMemory to find and compare providers in Calgary
  • Listing of funeral providers in the region
  • Summary analysis of funeral prices in Calgary and surrounding communities

How do I use InMemory to find and compare funeral providers?

  1. Determine which of the four primary types of funeral arrangements most closely meets your need
  2. Use the resources page in InMemory to assist with understanding the cost of funerals
  3. Find & compare funeral homes in Calgary and surrounding communities based on location and service:

4. Alternatively, you can view search results for Calgary; for the purpose of this search, we have used a search radius of 50 kms.  Note that InMemory provides users with the ability to decrease the search radius to as low as 10 kms and as high as 250 kms.  Increasing the search radius to 100kms increases the number of funeral homes to 21 (and includes the cities of Didsbury, High River, Olds, Sundre, and Three Hills).

Analysis of Funeral Homes in Calgary

In this section, we provide a regional summary of pricing for each of the four types of funeral services we cover - providing information on the lowest, average and highest pricing for the 14 funeral homes we cover in this article assessing Calgary funeral homes.  One point to stress is that the pricing we are analyzing includes the funeral homes' professional fees only - in other words, this pricing does not include costs such as caskets/containers, flowers, cemetery plots etc.

The pricing does however include the cost of cremation for the Memorial Service and Direct Cremation option.  This reflects the fact that many of the funeral homes in Alberta provide packaged cremation pricing - which includes the cost of cremation.  For funeral homes which have provided individual pricing which does not include the cost of cremation, we have increased their pricing for direct cremations and cremations followed by a memorial service by an amount of $500.  While the methodology is not perfect, it will help to ensure an "apples to apples" comparison analysis.
