History

Blake-Lamb Funeral Home has a long history of service in the Chicagoland area. The funeral home first opened on Chicago's Canal Street in 1880. At the time, the Blake family lived on the top floor of the building, the funeral home occupied the middle floor, and the stable for the horses who pulled the funeral hearse was located on the ground level.

From this humble but solid beginning, Blake-Lamb grew to be one of the more recognized names in funeral services throughout Illinois. In fact, our services have been so valued by the community that, on Mar. 5, 1980, the 81st General Assembly of the Illinois House of Representatives issued a resolution commending our funeral home for 100 years of dedicated care.

The funeral home moved west to Lisle in 1982. Under the guidance of Matt and Richard Lamb, Blake-Lamb Funeral Home joined the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, burial, cremation and cemetery service providers.
