History of McGilley & Sheil Funeral Home & Cremation Services
The Sheil Funeral and Cremation Service, located at 11924 E. 47th St., Kansas City, Missouri, was opened in 1957 by John P. Sheil.
The 47th Street location was opened as an expansion of the business’s primary location in Northeast Kansas City, Missouri. Sheil made extensive upgrades and improvements to the colonial-style facility after he purchased it, including the addition of a chapel to the eastern portion of the existing structure.
In 2009, the McGilley name was added to the location in a move to combine two of the most recognized funeral provider family names in the greater Kansas City area. The funeral and cremation services provided to the families served by McGilley & Sheil are second to none.
An interesting aside about the location: The horse drawn hearse that was purchased by Mr. Sheil many years ago is still in our possession, and is used for special public events.
