To our Knollcrest Family, that means extra care. The benefits available to our Veterans are benefits they’ve earned defending our country and all of us. Many Veterans and their families are not aware of all of their earned benefits, and it is our mission to ensure they are not only aware of them, but receive them. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously for the men and women who have sacrificed so much on our behalf.


Many Veterans and families now have the opportunity to take advantage of burial benefits at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in nearly Elwood, Illinois. Having a National Cemetery nearby is a vital benefit to many families as burial expenses are free of charge for a Veteran and spouse. Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery has members of each branch of the service available every day the cemetery is open to provide military services to Veterans.


If a different cemetery is chosen, Veteran’s are entitled to an American Flag, a headstone, and a member of their branch of the Armed Services to attend and play “Taps” to honor your Veteran loved one. Knollcrest will make all of the arrangements to notify the Veteran’s Administration to ensure these earned benefits are carried out.


“Veterans are among the most special people among us, having made sacrifices for the benefit of all of us. It is our duty to honor theirs and make sure everything we can do to honor that service is seen to” are the words of Robert Van Staalduinen, Owner and Funeral Director at Knollcrest Funeral Home, adding  “It’s an extreme Honor to serve them on their way home”.
