Our History

Thank you for your services at the funeral and in the preceding week. Your guidance through the details and planning insured that all went smoothly for the services, luncheon and burial services. It was indeed a day of celebration and remembrances. Thank you again for your help in our time of need.

Anderson Funeral & Cremation Services was founded more than 125 years ago, and we enjoy a rich heritage in Belvidere.

Mr. Marskie founded this funeral service business in 1890. He would be proud to know that his legacy is still going strong more than a century later. The funeral home was originally located on State Street in downtown Belvidere and moved a few blocks away to 218 W. Hurlbut Avenue in 1937.

There have been many changes to the funeral home over the years and we will continue to reinvest into our facilities and grounds and throughout northern Illinois. Anderson Funeral & Cremation Services is dedicated to serving the neighbors on our city block, all of the city of Belvidere, and the northern Illinois region. We believe that ours is a wonderful community and our goal is to pour back into our community by serving its families with the compassion and excellence they deserve.
