Hindman Funeral Homes & Crematory, Inc. has a long history of personalized, professional, and compassionate service dating back to 1956. William T. Hindman, along with his wife Dorothy, founded the William T. Hindman Funeral Home at 146 Chandler Avenue in the west end of Johnstown, where it is still located today. From humble beginnings, the business was founded on integrity, caring, compassionate, and unparalleled service that we still consider our hallmark today. In 1966, William T. Hindman II, “Tom”, completed mortuary school and began working beside his father, in the family business.
Although the business had grown a great deal since 1956 there still was not enough business to support two families. Tom taught English at Westmont High School and worked evenings, nights, and weekends at the funeral home. In March of 1978, William T. Hindman passed away after a brief illness, and Tom retired from teaching to be at the Funeral Home full time. In 1997, William T. Hindman III, “Bill”, graduated from mortuary school and began working, full time, at the Funeral Home.
In 2004, in light of current events that had raised serious concerns with using a third party crematory, we built our own, private crematory. The crematory is used only for the families we serve, and we are the only area firm that can guarantee the integrity of the cremation process, because your loved one never leaves our care.
In 2005, we acquired the Harvey H. Zeigler Funeral Home, Inc. in Hyndman, Pa and changed our name to Hindman Funeral Homes & Crematory, Inc. In 2007, we built a new, one-of-a-kind funeral home, located at 1521 Frankstown Road in Johnstown. The new funeral home features soft accent lighting, rustic décor, and a huge, stone fireplace crackling in the restful foyer. Offering a warm, soothing atmosphere, it is truly a special place to honor a loved one. We are humbled and honored that, for over 50 years, families have placed a sacred trust in our hands by calling on us, in their time of need. Although change is a certainty, some things will always remain the same such as our commitment to do the very best, for every family that we have the privilege of serving.
