About

An exceptional individual deserves a memorial service that speaks to their unique personality. At Bisch & Son Funeral Home in Springfield, Illinois, your stories inspire us to create personalized tributes for those we honor.

One-of-a-kind funeral celebrations

We begin by listening to you. Paint a picture of what really mattered in life—a favorite pastime, a lifelong hobby, an unmistakable trait—and we will work to weave the most important elements into a service that best reflects your loved one's personality. Envision one last trip to the driving range for the avid golfer in your life, with a range-themed ceremony replete with keepsake monogrammed golf balls for guests. Imagine a live string band playing a swing fan’s favorite hits, with guests remembering their companion in dress from the era. Whatever your wishes, our talented team will do our best to attend to almost any request.

Let us take care of the details so you can focus on family and friends. Food and drink, from our extensive menu or your personal recipe book, is served by our gracious catering team in whatever style you desire. Our vast reception space at Bisch & Son Funeral Home flexibly accommodates large reunions or intimate family gatherings, depending on your wish. Our interfaith chapel welcomes guests from all traditions and faiths, and our team receives your guests at arrival and departure.

Traditional religious ceremonies remain a classic choice. We offer burial with military honors to those who served our country, as well as cremation with optional burial of cremated remains for those who seek an alternative. Our location in Springfield allows us to serve our neighboring communities from Williamsville to Taylorsville and beyond.

History

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.

"This is the third time we have used the services through Bisch & Son. We have always been treated like family. Questions and concerns were always answered in a timely manner. I love the fact they are with you for the long run. Our last experience we had a cremation. No matter how long after, we can bring the urn back and have it opened for jewelry, memorial spreading, ect. and resealed for no extra cost."

"Phillip and Kate were very understanding and patient of the many, many questions we had, and they always answered them with kindness and courtesy. They were very accommodating and did everything we asked of them to make our dad's service as special as we wanted it to be. The commemorative book and accompanying materials were very much appreciated. My sisters and I are very grateful for everyone's kindness. Thank you!"
