History of Bisch Funeral Home

Charles T. Bisch, a local funeral director and carpet store owner, started the Charles T. Bisch Funeral Service in 1896 on 6th Street north of Washington Street in Springfield, IL. As the business grew, he established a funeral home in the Lincoln Home area at 8th and Capital Streets where he operated with his son H.P. Bisch. In 1950, H.P. Bisch, his son Phil Bisch III, and Charles T. Bisch opened the newly constructed Bisch and Son Funeral Home, which to this day remains Springfield’s first facility built as a funeral home, at our present location at 505 East Allen Street.

The facility features two large chapels, beautiful archways and eclectic décor including oriental furnishings purchased by Charles T. Bisch during the Chicago World’s Fair in the early 1900’s. In 1982 a crematory was added to the location as the request for cremation became more frequent. This addition was one of the first in Springfield, providing seamless professional care to those families requesting cremation. In 1995 a second funeral home was constructed on Springfield’s growing west side. This location offers single level access, one formal chapel, one large great room that can be customized into three separate chapels, and is appointed with custom woodwork throughout.

In 1997 Phil’s sons Derek and Phillip Bisch IV, representing the fifth generation of the Bisch family, joined the Dignity Memorial network of funeral and cemetery professionals. With the extended resources of Dignity Memorial, our strong commitment and service to all families of Springfield and the surrounding area continues to this day.
