About

Since our founding in 1948, there has been only one thought and direction at Querhammer & Flagg Funeral Home: to provide quality funeral and cremation services for the families of Crystal Lake, Illinois. We help families honor their loved ones with dignity, respect and attention to detail.

A Crystal Lake funeral home that celebrates life

Reception Room at Querhammer & Flagg Funeral HomeThe professional team at Querhammer & Flagg Funeral Home is dedicated to compassionate care and celebrations of significance. We aim not only to preserve past memories but also to create new ones with personalized funeral and memorial services carefully designed with the personalities and passions of individuals in mind.

This approach allows us to get to know your family and your loved one. It allows us to consider your faith, customs and personal preferences, whether we're planning a traditional religious service, a contemporary gathering, a simple cremation with a scattering, or a graveside service in a nearby cemetery. Whatever you choose, we offer many planning ideas and resources.

In addition to a flexible chapel, we also have space for a reception before or after a service. And our catering services make things easy. You pick a package, and we take care of the rest.

Cremation in Crystal Lake

Signature Dedication Presentation at Querhammer & Flagg Funeral HomeThere are many options for cremation in Crystal Lake—and they're not all equal. We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our all-inclusive pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

And for those who wish for a more dramatic memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

"We made the right choice when our family chose Querhammer & Flagg in Crystal Lake. They showed respect and compassion from the very moment we were in contact. They met and exceeded every expectation. They anticipated, guided and supported us through every aspect of this emotional experience. Kudos, we noticed we were working with a staff, predominantly of women, which seemed unique. Our family thanks you."

"I am retired from the industry and during my tenure I came in contact with all types of funeral personnel. The staff at Querhammer are the best in the business. As caring and professional as any I ever worked with. When you have the need because of a loss you could not make a better choice of professionals for a loved one. I now live out of state but if I were in the area I would do all my advance planning with Kelli and her staff."
