Welcome to the Illinois Funeral Directors Association Site

The Illinois Funeral Directors Association was founded in 1881 by funeral directors seeking a common voice, a way to share information, ideas and methods and to protect themselves and consumers through legislation. We invite you to review the information on this site and contact us with any questions you may have.
