Planning a funeral in Chicago

Chicago is home to over a hundred funeral homes, meaning you have a wide range of choices when selecting a funeral home in Chicago. When comparing them, it’s often a good idea to compare prices, reviews and locations, as well as any special focuses, if that’s important to you. In Chicago, you’ll find cremation-focused funeral homes, Asian funeral homes, Jewish funeral homes and more.

Burial is still slightly more common that cremation in the state of Illinois as of 2016, but cremation rates continue to rise and cremation is expected to be more common than burial by 2020. Cremation has the benefits of being greener, more affordable and more flexible, as there is a much wider range of locations where you can choose to scatter or bury ashes.

If you’d prefer to bury your loved one, there are many Chicago cemeteries to choose from. Consider visiting a few to get a feel for the location that you’re most likely to go back to visit.
