Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our doors we have approached life and death differently. While some just see the end of a loved one's life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not just a funeral home. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life. 

Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

Why Us?

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Learn the legacy.


For more than a century, Coyle Funeral Home and Cremation Services  has been serving families throughout Northwest Ohio. Carrying a long family tradition, Coyle has become synonymous with caring, compassionate and personal service with commitment to genuine, quality care. Our full service traditional burial and cremation funeral home remains family owned and operated.

In 1888, James Coyle opened his first funeral home near downtown Toledo. A civic-minded leader and local activist, Mr. Coyle wanted to help his neighbors and created a business to reach out to families in mourning.

Mr. Coyle expanded the funeral home as it was passed to his son William, and grandsons William and James Coyle. Today fourth generation Joseph and his daughter, Megan Coyle, fifth generation, continue the business. The Coyle family and its dedicated staff pride themselves on the faithful tradition of serving with knowledge, integrity and comfort families have come to rely on through difficult times.

“When my great grandmother passed away, she was cared for by James Coyle, there was only one funeral home I would have care for my mother when she moved on from this life…Joe Coyle showed the same level of care and compassion as his great grandfather did so long ago…”
