We have grown into one of the biggest and most successful state funeral directors associations in the country, with over 750 members statewide. We offer a wide variety of services to our members and the public, including a credit union, funeral financing, legislative lobbying, a job location service and more.Hinchliff-Pearson-West Funeral Directors and Cremation Services is a proud member of the Illinois Funeral Directors Association

Founded in 1913, the Cremation Association of North America (CANA) is an International organization of over 1300 members, composed of cemeterians, cremationists, funeral directors, industry suppliers and consultants. CANA members believe that cremation is preparation for memorialization. The Cremation Association of North America was originally formed to promote the “modern way” and the “safe and hygienic way” of dealing with a dead human body. It was a form of disposition and had nothing to do with the funeral and memorialization of the deceased.Hinchliff-Pearson-West Funeral Directors and Cremation Services is a proud member of the Cremation Association of North America
