There is a web site that you can look up and get addresses for funeral
homes anywhere. I can't find the addy right now (brain block) but I
think it is www.funeralhomes.com. You just type in the city, and state
and it will give you a list of all the funeral homes in that city. I've
used it and written letters to the funeral homes for funeral record and
on the records it usually tells lots of information including the
cemetery of burial. If I find it before we leave for the holiday, I'll
email it to you.
