Lane-Moynihan Funeral Directors and the Cremation Foundation maintains an office in downtown Chicago, in addition to Central Chapel.

Lane-Moynihan and the Cremation Foundation remain committed to serving people whose financial resources are limited by circumstances or philosophy. In addition to our ordinary funeral, memorial, and cremation offerings which are so modestly priced, we have special arrangements in place during these most difficult economic times.

We are pleased to provide this service to you and the families we serve. The current funerals entrusted to our firm are listed here. If you are unable to attend funeral or memorial services, you can still be with the family in thought by signing the online guest book, expressing your condolences or share your most memorable recollection about the deceased. You can also place a memorial donation, send a floral tribute or be reminded of the anniversary of a death.

Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?
