Acquisitions: Two continents, two hemispheres, corporate firms, 4th generation firms. . . they keep happening

Going into the weekend we thought we needed to remind you that acquisitions keep on coming in the death care business.  In the last week or ten days here’s a couple we noticed.

Cleveland’s Busch Funeral and Crematory Services, a 4th generation firm has added Schuster-Straker-O’Connor Funeral Home  of Parma, Ohio, to its existing Northeast Ohio footprint.

According to the press release of August 19, that you can read here, Busch is solely family owned and operated, and offers burial, cremation, and preplanning services. Busch’s seven existing locations are updated with modern amenities, and the firm takes pride in providing personalized, genuine care for every family they serve.
