In 1896, Charles T. Bisch, a local funeral director and carpet store owner, started the Charles T. Bisch Funeral Service 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 worked 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 at our present location at 505 East Allen Street. Thus began Springfield’s first dedicated funeral home.

Our funeral home has two large chapels, beautiful archways and eclectic décor including furnishings purchased by Charles T. Bisch during the Chicago World’s Fair in the early 1900s. In 1982, a crematory was added to the location as the requests 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 and one large great room that can be customized into three separate chapels. The funeral home 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 the network, our strong commitment and service to all families of Springfield and the surrounding area continues to this day.
