Our History

Thank you so much for your considerate care and concern in regard to my mother’s funeral. Your exemplary skills and service made this difficult time and transition much easier to bear for our family. I think you did an amazing job, and she looked beautiful. Thank you for the good memories and helping us celebrate her amazing life!

Karen McCoy and Family

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.
