Funeral homes, memorial parks
Roberts Funeral Home and American Cemetery Services is a company whose goal is to provide families with the best possible service and merchandise available, and to have a reputation of being an ethical company throughout those communities. We have been innovators in our industry from the beginning, and are constantly looking for new ways to honor and celebrate those that are so important to the families we serve.
Our company began in 1961 when J.P. Roberts and his brother Chester Roberts purchased land north of Wooster and founded Sherwood Memorial Gardens. They also started East Lawn Memory Gardens in Brunswick and Hillcrest Memorial Gardens in Wadsworth in the mid-and-late sixties.
During the 1970’s and 80’s, J. P. and Chester split their multi-state company, and J. P.’s three oldest sons, Greg, Jeff, and Kirk, joined their father in business. Ashland County Memorial Park, one of our most beautiful cemeteries, joined our family; and Ohio’s first cemetery/mortuary combination, Roberts Funeral Home Sherwood Chapel, Wooster, was established.
The 90’s and 2000’s brought Alex Roberts, the youngest of the 4 sons, and the addition of two more funeral home/cemetery combinations: Hillcrest Chapel in Wadsworth and Ashland Chapel. J. P. officially retired and his sons now own and operate the company. We created American Cemetery Services as the parent company of the cemetery holdings, and in 2001, Mt. Vernon Memorial Gardens, Ft. Steuben Burial Estates, Seneca Memory Gardens, and East Lawn Memorial Park in Marietta were added to our family.
