Ever since my grandfather Raymond A. "Ray" Crawshaw founded Crawshaw Funeral Home in Murphysboro in 1931, the town and surrounding area families have depended on us. Today, I am the 3rd generation Crawshaw to own and operate the family business; we remain 100% locally owned and not a part of any national or regional chain. At Crawshaw Funeral Home our service is a sacred trust. I or one of my licensed staff is available 24 hours a day to assist you at your time of need, when you call for help we are here to answer. We offer a wide range of services, including Burial, Cremation, Pre-need Funeral Arrangements, and Monuments.

I encourage you to browse our website, and contact me should you have any questions.
