Burial Services

Celebrating a Life Lived

When planning a burial service, there are many different elements available to select from according to your preferences. At Christian Funeral Home, we offer burial services for families in Chicago, IL and nearby suburbs.

  • Immediate Burial means that your loved one’s physical remains will be buried or entombed without a public service or gathering
    Chicago Burial Service
  • Visitation (also called a “viewing,” “wake” or “calling hours”) allows family and friends to gather in a room with the departed loved one (in an open or closed casket) and gives everyone the opportunity to say goodbye and offer their support and sympathy to the bereaved.

  • Funeral or Memorial Services can take place at a funeral home, in a church, or even at your home. The service is a ceremony which serves to celebrate, honor, and remember the life of the deceased. Whether traditional or unique, both the visitation and the funeral service can be personalized to reflect the individuality of your loved one. For more information on personalization, visit our page on Celebrating Life.

  • Graveside, Chapel, or Committal Services are held at the cemetery, and allow family and friends to be present as their loved one is transferred to his or her final disposition through ground burial.


Funeral Service Chicago, ILWhen a family chooses burial, the funeral service is traditionally designed to involve three distinct phases: visitation, the funeral, and the burial service. These generally follow the casket from the funeral home through the final burial at a cemetery. While this arrangement works for some families, it’s not the only option available and it might not be the ideal solution for others. We’ll work with you understand your needs and create the perfect plan for you and your loved one.
