Whatever you wish your final resting place to be, Anderson Funeral & Cremation Services can help. The choice is yours. The privilege is ours.

Traditional Burial
Many families choose traditional in-ground burial, usually with a marker, stone, or plaque to honor the person who has died. But there are other choices, such as interment in an above-ground mausoleum or columbarium niche, which becomes a perfect place for loved ones to visit, reflect, and remember. We can make arrangements for you at a cemetery locally or anywhere in the world.


We offer a wide selection of decorative urns and keepsake jewelry for permanent possession. If you prefer to scatter the remains, we can perform a burial at sea or even place your remains in an ocean reef. If there is a meaningful location where you would like to perform a scattering ceremony, we can inform you of Illinois’ health and legal regulations.

Come to the professional staff at Anderson Funeral & Cremation Services to help you select a memorial option that fits your wishes and budget.

The setting up of permanent memorial stones dates back to the beginning of human history. There are many stories in the Old Testament of the Bible where memorial stones were set up. One of the most famous stories can be found in Joshua 4 when the Israelites crossed the Jordan River to escape the pursuing Egyptian army. Setting up a permanent memorialization helps to remind people of their story, who they are, where they are from and what they represent.
