The Chicago Memorial Association is a non-profit organization of area residents dedicated to helping our neighbors make funeral arrangements that are dignified, meaningful and affordable. We cover the Chicago metropolitan area, including Cook, Du Page, Lake, Kane, McHenry and Will counties.
We are affiliated with the national Funeral Consumers Alliance (www.funerals.org)
The Chicago Memorial Association uses its bargaining advantage with funeral directors to receive member pricing remarkably lower than generally available. Our member prices — from cremation to a simple, full service funeral at our cooperating funeral director’s facility — are well below the national average.
In addition to special pricing, we offer helpful information on funeral pre-planning, advance directives, and other end-of-life issues. Check out the links below for more information.

**NOTE: We do not provide financial assistance for funerals but can provide you cost saving advice and reduced prices at participating funeral homes.
Chicago Memorial Association is a local non-profit organization that is part of the national Funeral Consumers Alliance.
