Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum Announces

Name Change of its Funeral Homes

 

CINCINNATI – Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum announces today that it is changing the name of its funeral subsidiary from Gwen Mooney to Spring Grove Funeral Homes.  The name change reflects Spring Grove’s commitment to providing the full spectrum of end-of-life services. 

“Spring Grove has always been known as one of the finest cemeteries in the United States.  We have been actively investing in funeral homes for over 15 years.  The new name will help consumers understand our commitment to provide Cincinnati families with the complete range of services including preplanning, funerals, cremation, burial, memorialization and aftercare”, said President and CEO Gary Freytag.

The new name is effective immediately, and will encompass the Spring Grove Funeral Homes adjacent to Spring Grove Cemetery (main), Tri County, Hyde Park (Elden Good), and Clifton (Miller) locations.  The funeral home formerly known as Schaeffer Busby and the Spring Grove Cremation Society (www.springgrove cremation.com) are also included.   Oak Hill Cemetery in Tri County will continue to be operated by Spring Grove but will retain its name for the time being. 

“We are very excited by the name change”, said Theresa Correa Spring Grove Funeral Homes Managing Funeral Director.  “Our new name is more reflective of the team of committed professionals who have provided exceptional, caring service for years.  We are the only funeral company that can put the breadth of the resources of our entire organization behind each family we serve.”

The Spring Grove name has been part of the Greater Cincinnati community for nearly two centuries. “Our vision for Spring Grove is to become the preferred leader for all end-of-life services for our community,” emphasizes Freytag.  “We continue to innovate and evolve to meet the changing needs of families.  The funeral home name change, and the accompanying services, more clearly defines who we are, and is the next step in further investment and growth.”
