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.
The City of Calgary is the major urban centre for Southern Alberta. Located east of the Rocky Mountains Calgary in the sunniest major city in Canada. Calgary is a mountain- high city with a dry climate and mild temperatures compared to most of Canada. The city itself was ranked as the 4th most livable city in the world in 2018 with a high quality of life and low population density. Calgary is the largest city in Alberta with a population of 1,392,609. The city of Calgary is a young city with a median age of 36.9 years and is not getting much older. Only 11.3% of the city’s population is over the age of 65.
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

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.
