About Busch Funeral and Crematory Services

The Busch family has proudly served the funeral service needs of families living in Greater Cleveland for more than 100 years.

Our story began in 1905, when Gustav H. Busch opened the Rehburg-Busch Furniture and Hardware Store in the Old Brooklyn neighborhood of Cleveland. At that time, the store produced fine wooden caskets and included an embalming facility. By 1925, Busch was the first in the Cleveland area to build a facility used strictly as a funeral home.

Our family has embraced the funeral profession with one goal: to bring the highest level of compassion and service to the Cleveland community.

"Thank you for honoring my son in the most perfect way. Every single detail was addressed. I know everyone was doing their job, but we all felt as though we were the only family being taken care of. The professionalism and care given to each and every question or request anyone had was over the top." — Susan Bobby, Fairview Park, OH
