Schoedinger Funeral and Cremation Service

Schoedinger Funeral & Cremation Service was founded in 1855 by German cabinet-maker Philip Schoedinger. Today the business, in its sixth generation of family ownership, has grown to include 15 locations, three crematories, green burials, prearrangement services, bereavement support, Heart and Hope Funeral Homes, Buckeye Cremation Society, The Caregiving Tree website, monument services, and our pet services division which includes our therapy dogs, Willow and Banks.

Schoedinger holds the coveted designation of a member of Selected Independent Funeral Homes, a membership by invitation to only one funeral service in each community. Schoedinger has been recognized as one of the top three family-owned businesses in the country. The company also won the Better Business Bureau of Central Ohio’s Integrity Award, and CEO Magazine’s Best Places to Work in Central Ohio.
