The Anderson Family of Anderson-Goodale Memorial Homes feel a strong commitment to Veterans in their communities and every community. We serve veterans from literally all over the region. Our nearby communities of Crest Hill, Plainfield, Romeoville and Lockport are home to many, many veterans and service families. 


Veterans Burial benefits are "Earned Benefits" that entitle every man or woman who has served in the military very specific and valuable services and benefits upon their death. Those benefits extend to a spouse and even a dependent child of a Veteran. 

With Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery just down the road from us, it's even more of a convenience for Veteran Families. Veterans may be buried or entombed there at no charge in remembrance of their loyal service to their country. There is a Columbarium for final disposition of Cremation Urns as well. Services at the cemetery can receive the 21-gun salute (the funeral home must request military honors from the branch of service). 

All of these services can come with full military honors, most likely performed by the branch of the service your loved one served in. We provide American Flags for both caskets and urns. The military presence includes the playing of Taps, a presentation of the flag to the next of kin, and a gravestone for the grave site of the Veteran. All cemetery burial expenses are covered at a National Cemetery, saving survivors a significant funeral expense. Please keep in mind that there are benefits available at other selected family cemeteries (i.e. Flag, Taps playing by active Service members, Flag presentation to family, and gravestone), but only at a National Cemetery will full cemetery burial or entombment expenses be covered completely. 

Every Veteran understands the importance of their DD-214 documentation. If this has been lost or misplaced, we can help you replace it. Having these documents in a safe place, and even on file at Anderson-Goodale Memorial Homes ensures much efficiency by seeing to it that full benefits are passed along to every hero who has served our nation in the military. Anderson-Goodale Memorial Homes have years of experience in helping Veterans, Spouses and Dependent family members achieve their full measure of benefits for their service. Whether these arrangements are done in Pre-Planning, which is a very strong recommendation for Veterans, or At-Need; we will see to it that we ensure your Veterans receive the full and respectful treatment they have earned, with our greatest gratitude and esteem.
