Baskerville Funeral Home in Wilmington, formerly Freitag-Reeves & Baskerville, Freitag Funeral Home, DesRochers Funeral Home and Addleman Funeral Home - continues to maintain the longest established history in funeral service throughout Wilmington, dating back to 1924. The original funeral home located in the 200 block of South Main Street in downtown Wilmington was destroyed by fire in 1983 and reconstructed within the same year at the current address on Kahler Road.
The facility, recently renovated and redecorated, offers accommodations all on one level with ample parking and handicap accessibility. We have created a comfortable environment and offer virtual options and selections during arrangements.
Since 2011, Baskerville has been a recipient of the National Funeral Directors Association Pursuit of Excellence Eagle Award. This is the highest commendation in funeral service and places Baskerville and Reeves Funeral Homes, Ltd., two of only five funeral homes in Illinois, and among the top two percent of funeral homes internationally.
