Advance Funeral Planning & Options


A funeral is an important life event that requires a great deal of thought and input. When making arrangements in advance these important details do not only have to come from the individual, but can also come from family members and friends. It is simply an easy way to ensure your life is honored in a meaningful way that helps those who will be left behind to grieve and heal.

Our full time licensed funeral directors and on-staff Certified Prearrangement Consultants can help guide the planning process and discuss all available options. The National Funeral Directors Association 2017 Consumer Awareness and Preferences Study revealed that 62.5 percent of consumers feel it’s very important to communicate their funeral plans and wishes to family members prior to their own death. In reality only 21.4 percent have done so.

When families don’t have these important discussions, family members coping with the death of a loved one might feel overwhelmed and not be prepared to make these important decisions.

Every good funeral or memorial service celebrates and honors a person’s life story.

Reeves and Baskerville funeral homes have locations in Coal City, Gardner, Morris and Wilmington and are always available to discuss the countless options available when making advance funeral plans. Our funeral homes have also been voted best funeral services in Grundy County and one of the Best in Will County, year after year. www.Reeves-Baskerville.com
