Frequently Asked Questions

We know there are many cremation service providers available to you. And we believe an informed decision is the best one. With that in mind, we encourage you to ask the following questions prior to making a final selection.

How much will it cost for a simple direct cremation?


Are there any hidden costs?


The advertised direct cremation price sounds great; what else do I need to purchase?

Nothing; however there may be additional fees associated with the interment of cremains at any local cemetery.

Do I have to pay a fee to join a society to have myself or my loved one cremated?

No, we do not believe in membership fees.

What areas do you serve?

Care Memorial offers complete cremation services throughout Chicago and Cook, DuPage, Will, Kane, Kendall, Lake, Grundy, McHenry and Lake Counties in Illinois and Lake County, Indiana.

Why is your cost so much less than everywhere else I’ve called?

Care Memorial specializes in simple, direct cremation. We excel in this area and because this is our core business, we are able to pass the savings along to you.

How do I know that the remains (ashes) I receive are my loved one?

Once you call Care Memorial, your loved one is in our hands from their removal to their actual cremation. We encourage our families to be an active part of the cremation by coming to say good-bye and witnessing the beginning of the cremation process at our state-of-the-art facility in Romeoville, IL.
