Subject: Funeral Home Files
Date: Wed, 31 Oct 2001 11:14:50 EST

When I worked at a funeral home, we had a card file of everyone whose funeral
we had handled all the way back to when the funeral home began business in
the 30s. Many times I had to look up last known address, next of kin,
location of grave in which cemetery, etc. When a funeral home or director
goes out of business or is bought by a corporation, this file is frequently
"inherited" by a nearby funeral home.
