I've attended a funeral at Midtown Funeral Home and had the opportunity to meet Mr. Greg Lindeman the director of operations and business owner. He was very pleasant to talk to and demonstrated to be a very accommodating and caring person.I was well impressed by the funeral home grounds, and how spacious all of the rooms are. I felt very comfortable and thought everything looked very well taken care and clean.The staff was very respectful, friendly and sympathetic.I definitely recommend this funeral home and Mr.Lindeman’s services.

I recommend Mr.Greg and Midtown Funerals. He took care of all funeral details for my husband, he answered all my questions in a very kind way ,considering the situation. The crew was very respectful and kind and the place itself was very ...welcoming ,peaceful,if I can say that. I've seen other funeral homes that gave me the creeps, but not here. You can feel the peace when you step in ,and the way Mr Greg and the team take care of all the details will give you a little peace of mind while you can keep grieving your loved one.

My husband, Frank Murphy passed away in June, after a long illness. With Greg Lindeman’ s assistance and support, I was able to have a truly beautiful Memorial Service that achieved everything I had hoped for. Thank you, Greg, for your kindness.

When my husband died unexpectedly, we had not made previous plans for a funeral. My children and I were complete novices to the process. A friend suggested Midtown Funeral Home on Irving Park Road, which was close for our friends to visit. For those who would fly in, it was conveniently located near the Kennedy Expressway and not very far from O'Hare Airport.We were impressed by the lovely building, which had a choice of room sizes for gatherings. We were happy to hear that only one funeral is scheduled at a time, unlike other places which can have several funeral gatherings at one time.Gregory Lindeman, director, led us to a planning area. He began by asking us a series of helpful question providing a framework of ideas from which to plan the funeral. He listened carefully to our wishes which guided us through the process that day and through the following days.There were opportunities for a lovely service within our budget. We chose a viewing. The viewing was immediately followed by a prayer service led by a deacon and several family members and long time friends who paid tribute to my husband. Greg had very good suggestions to follow in planning our roles in the service.We also opted for a slide show of my husband's life to be played during the viewing hours, until time for the service. We had the service broadcasted live at our request for friends and family who could not be there. We have very lovely memories of the day and my husband would have been very pleased.

It was my first time planning a funeral and Greg and Ly were extremely helpful and patient with me. They answered all my questions and gave me great advice and suggestions throughout the process. The funeral home was very spacious and they made it look lovely even though we were all mourning a loss. Thank you.

Midtown made it easy to plan my 15 year old Son’s Funeral. This was the HARDEST TIME OF MY LIFE and they were sensitive to my feelings and referred me to Supportive Services. I appreciate the kind spirit and support.

母亲于5月5日离世,我正在手术恢复期。孤身一人在芝加哥,万剑穿心,千头万绪不知如何按中国传统办理母亲的后事。幸好在网上搜到Greg. 他熟悉并尊重亚裔丧葬习俗,特许我和他的助手一起替母亲穿寿衣入殓。灵堂按排得庄严肃穆。Greg亲自护送母亲去火葬。整个流程体贴入微。Greg给我收据,也细心地放入信封再递给我。让我在人生最艰难的时刻如沐春风。非常感谢,Greg!你将是我一生的朋友。Cathy.5/10/23

Midtown Funeral Home made planning my dear Aunt’s funeral stress free. Greg is a wonderful help and a compassionate man. He helped us plan a lovely funeral that was very fitting for my Aunt. He is very knowledgeable in what is needed and very helpful with filing the necessary paperwork and setting things up with the cemetery. The funeral home architecture is beautiful and well kept. We ordered flowers through the funeral home also. They were gorgeous and exactly what we wanted.

Working with a funeral home isn't anything that anyone wants to do. Especially if you're handling the service for the love of your life and best friend. Greg and his family have been in this business for decades. This used to be the Cooney funeral home back in the day and I chose it more for the location. Plus my buddy Benny B and my wife's aunt had their service here. Greg and his team made this such an easy process that I would recommend everyone to go here for this unfortunate and unwanted event. After the services Greg the funeral director and I talked as two people, correction as two friends. Next time I'm in Chicago I'm going to stop by just to say hello and thank him again for his professionalism and for just being a great person in the worst time. You don't think to hug someone someone doing this job but we hugged as compadres.

I recently attended a service at Midtown Funeral Home and Cremation Services. Although the occasion was very sad, the funeral home itself was well appointed with the ambiance of serenity and peace. The décor was very simple but elegant and those running it were very attentive and compassionate. I know my friend would be at peace knowing her passing was handled with such grace and kindness in such a beautiful place.

It’s never easy losing a loved one- in addition to planning a funeral. The folks at Midtown Funeral Home were empathic, professional, and detailed. My family and I appreciated everything that was done to help make our goodbye special and comforting.
