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.

"Ron Graeff is an absolutely wonderful wonderful man. He is very patient, kind, helpful and offered suggestions for things in the service that I loved. The service was beautiful. Ron also worked it out so that we could have the Army Honor Guard present since my dad was a Korean War Army veteran. I believe Ron helped me create a service that all could share in, appreciate and find peace. Thank you. Also, thank you to Texas. Texas was very sweet and always available for any questions when I called in to speak with Ron. Thanks to you as well Texas! Stay safe!"

"It would be beneficial if the length of time it would take to complete the cremation service was explained. I assumed it would be done quickly (i.e. 14 days) rather than the almost 30 days it took."

"You will be in great hands with Blake-Lamb. The directors and staff truly care about sending off your loved one with the upmost care, professionalism, and warmth. I couldn't have asked for a better staff to work with during these extremely difficult times. The arrangements were also beautiful and perfect."
