"Over 300 Projects and 37 Years of Service to the Cemetery and Funeral Home Industry"


Mekus Tanager has an extensive understanding of the issues and needs of the cemetery and funeral home industry.  We have completed projects ranging from mild restorations to the development of large, ground-up cemeteries, their grounds, and the support facilities.  In fact, our first project as a firm was for Catholic Cemeteries - Archdiocese of Chicago, and we've been heavily involved in cemetery planning and cemetery design ever since.  We can help your cemetery or funeral home maximize your investment, and we look forward to helping you in any way we can!
