Welcome to Cremation Services of Metro East, LLC, a subsidiary of Schildknecht Funeral Home, Inc.  We trust you will find helpful information and answers to your questions about cremation services we offer, Meaningful Personalized Tributes, Traditional Visitation Funeral & Cremation Services, Cremation & Memorial Services or on-site basic cremation starting for a low price of $2165.

“Our Family serving your Family” is more than a slogan for us. It’s our Mission.  We are committed to providing the highest standards in quality and service for each family we serve before, during and after the death.  On October 1, 2008 the Schildknecht Funeral Home added an on-site crematory, Cremation Services of Metro East.  Your loved one never leaves the care of our compassionate and qualified staff.  All cremations are performed only by a fully certified and experienced certified cremator.  Our funeral directors are licensed in Illinois and Missouri, proudly serving Southwestern Illinois and the St. louis Metropolitan area.

More people are choosing cremation as an alternative to a traditional funeral service and burial. However, cremation does not have to replace a funeral service. Most cremation services still include a public visitation, memorial service or graveside service, in conjunction with many other options.  Contact one of our directors and begin planning the services for you or your family member.   Some of the cities included in our service area encompass but are not limited to Southwestern Illinois and St. Louis.   For more information feel free to call us at 618-624-2244, or you can e-mail us directly through this website at info@cremationil.com.
