Charles Truman Funeral Home : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Can anyone tell me if Charles H. J. Truman & Company Funeral Home (in business in 1901) was bought by another firm and renamed??

Carole- I found the funeral home in the 1903 San Francisco Telephone Directory and they were listed as being on Mission Street. Someone told me that in 1902 they were on Mason Street.

I have a great uncle who died in 1908 and his remains were handled by the Truman Funeral Directors. There is no death record for him, so I am trying to locate possible records from the Truman Home, but to date have found nothing. Have you found out anything since your posting? I am actively looking and will keep you posted if I discover anything.
