"I would like to thank you and your Busch team for all that you did for our mom’s funeral. You were so kind to our family and catered to our every desire. The funeral service was a beautiful tribute to Mom. We have received so many cards saying what a beautiful service. It would not have been possible without your help and those on your team." — Gail Berzins, Brecksville, OH
Busch offers several burial options that can be tailored to fit any family’s needs.
Earth burial is the most common burial choice in Northeast Ohio. Earth burial is defined as placing your loved one in a casket and burying them in the ground. When choosing earth burial, options to consider generally include your choice of casket, vault, cemetery plot and headstone or grave marker.
You can also choose above ground entombment in a mausoleum, which is a building designed and maintained to be a final resting place.
Busch also offers green burial options, and we are certified by the Green Burial Council. The Green Burial Council encourages burial as a means of facilitating the restoration, acquisition, and stewardship of natural areas. Green burials are free from formaldehyde, metal or concrete grave liners and burial vaults. To transport the body of a loved one, caskets, coffins or alternative containers made of biodegradable materials are used.
Busch offers a variety of environmentally friendly burial containers. Visit our online casket store to view some of our options.
Advocates of green burials take comfort in knowing their bodies decompose and become part of nature. Loved ones are placed in biodegradable wicker, cardboard, or wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
Please contact us to learn more about green burials.
Many families who select burial as a final disposition also choose to have a funeral service, gathering and/or visitation. With any service, Busch will help you create a meaningful personalized life tribute. Visit our Burial Services page to learn more about your choice of gathering.
