Death Away from Home
When funeral arrangements must unexpectedly be made away from home, Irwin Chapel will assist you in any way that we can.
WHAT TO DO FIRST
Call Irwin Chapel at 618-931-8000 day or night. It is not usually necessary for you to contact an out-of-state funeral home. We can do this for you. We will make the arrangements necessary to transport the deceased to the out-of-state funeral home for embalming, prepar-ation, and return to Illinois. We will need some basic information from you, and we will ask you to call us upon your return to Illinois to set a time for an arrangement conference.
