Smith-Corcoran Funeral Home is proud to be family owned and operated. We trace our community roots to our inception in 1912 when Bill Smith opened his first funeral home on North Cicero Avenue believing in the importance of a locally owned choice and a name you can trust. Though much has changed in last 100 years, our commitment to providing the highest quality burial, cremation, and funeral services to Chicagoland area families of all faiths, beliefs, traditions and cultures has never wavered. For this reason we are one of the most preferred family-owned funeral homes and crematorium in the Chicagoland area. We pride ourselves on serving families with the highest level of care, compassion and personal attention all at a reasonable price. It is our tireless dedication to supporting and guiding our community during a time of loss that makes us unique. More About Us.
