About Us

Kevin

During the mid-1800’s my great, great, great grandfather, Philip, was often called upon to use his skills as a cabinet maker to build caskets for his friends and neighbors. Since then, my family has continued to care for our neighbors when they experience a death. How we serve continues to evolve with each passing generation.

In recent times, we have heard many people request “something simple.” They have said, “Mom would have wanted a Celebration of Life.” Commemorations and gatherings have become more private and personal, and increasingly orchestrated by the participants.

To better serve those who want cremation but don’t want “everything else,” I am proud to introduce Buckeye Cremation Society, Central Ohio’s simple cremation resource. Our website puts the control in your hands — work at your own pace, at your convenience, and in the comfortable setting of your choice. Paperwork can be submitted electronically.

All of this is designed to put you in control. No one will pressure you, but please know that we are always available by phone, email, or in our convenient office (which is not a funeral home).

The world around us will continue to evolve and change, but our promise to provide the pinnacle of service and professionalism will never waiver. The highest standards of care will always be employed. Our staff will serve you and your loved one with dignity, respect, and genuine concern, just as my family has for over 160 years.

Buckeye Cremation Society is a Schoedinger Family Company and committed to serving the changing needs of Central Ohio’s families. We are the simple and affordable solution for those selecting cremation. You can trust your choice of Buckeye Cremation Society — the Cremation Society backed by Columbus’s most preferred cremation provider.

Sincerely,
Kevin D. Schoedinger
