Maps and Directions



Barr Funeral Home driving directions:
Our street address is 6222 N Broadway, Chicago, IL 60660.
We are located on Broadway, a block and a half south of Devon, just north of Granville. Driving directions from the major highways are below.

Where do we park?
In addition to street parking, we have two parking lots.
The alley at the south end of our building leads to both lots.

Behind our building is a small parking lot and rear entrance to the funeral home. Immediately west of the funeral home, at the corner of Granville and Magnolia, we have a second larger parking lot. Entrance to the funeral home from that lot may be gained either by walking down the well-lit alleyway to Broadway and left to our main entrance, or by walking down Granville to the corner of Broadway and Granville and turning left (north). Our main entrance is only half a block away.

Our handicapped visitors will find reserved parking next to our rear entrance, or if you are planning a short visit, feel free to use our loading zone just outside our main entrance on Broadway. Both our main and rear entrances have ramped approaches for easy access.
