Cremation has become a more requested service in the past several years. Requests for cremation as a final disposition has increased in recent years. At Sheehy Funeral Home, we provide a full range of cremation services that include a direct cremation, or more traditional services that conclude with cremation. These services include, but are not limited to, a Visitation in our chapel, a Church Memorial Service which can be personalized with family photographs, video and memorabilia or even an outdoor Memorial Garden Service. In the case of a Memorial Service, we can provide Memorial Registry Books, Memorial Service folders, Flag Cases, Personal Floral Tributes, or a number of other options that can facilitate a dignified service. Among other faiths, the Roman Catholic Church has included in its Rite of Christian Burial, and approved the burial of cremation remains in consecrated ground.

Sheehy Funeral Home offers a large selection of urns and containers for families to choose from for burial or safe keeping. We also provide suitable containers if your loved one’s wishes include placing their remains in final resting places of their choosing. Cremation is among the options of services available to honor and celebrate the life of your loved one. For more details about the protocol and procedure for cremation contact Bill Kiley, or another of our Licensed Funeral Directors at 708-857-7878 or We’re here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
