The Adolf family has been handling funeral arrangements in the Chicago area since 1882. Our business was founded by the Havlice and Kral families at 19th Street and Racine Avenue. In 1930 the Kral and Adolf Funeral Home opened at the corner of 19th and Miller Streets and continued there until 1960. Adolf-Berwyn Funeral Home was established in 1960 at 2921 S. Harlem Avenue, Berwyn, Illinois and continues in operation today. Our beautiful new facility, located at 7000 S. Madison, Willowbrook, Illinois, opened in October 2005. This convenient, state-of-the-art facility offers residents in the western suburbs a comfortable and thoroughly modern funeral service facility. Both of our funeral service facilities now carry the same name — Adolf Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Ltd.
