Ahlgrim Family Funeral Services

Ahlgrim Family Funeral Services has been a mainstay in the Lake Zurich and Palatine business communities for many years. Started in 1892 as Ahlgrim Undertakers in Chicago and eventually becoming Ahlgrim Family Funeral Services. The family has a proud heritage of outstanding service to families in need and a legacy of commitment to Lake Zurich and Palatine

Ahlgrim Family Funeral Home is a full service funeral provider. We listen to the family that has witnessed a life first hand. We allow them to tell us how this life can best be celebrated. Instead of telling a family what we can do, we accept their wishes and organize all aspects of their event. This provides those closest the time to be home, inform friends and comfort relatives
