1Title:  E. F. Boyd and Son Funeral Home Records, Series II     
 Creator:  E. F. Boyd and Son Funeral Home 
 Dates:  1919-1987 
 Abstract:  E. F. Boyd and Son Funeral Home is one of the oldest African American funeral homes in Cleveland, Ohio. Known earlier as Boyd's Funeral Home, the name was changed to E.F. Boyd & Son Funeral Home in 1938 when William F. Boyd joined his father, Elmer Franklin Boyd, in the business. Branches were opened in East Cleveland, Ohio in 1972, and in Warrensville Heights, Ohio in 1996. They arranged the funerals of many of Cleveland's most prominent citizens, white and black, as well as lesser known individuals. The collection consists of correspondence, financial records, funeral books, and notes. The funeral books comprise the bulk of the collection and include name, age, cause of death, date of funeral, type of casket, place of death, birth date, spouse's name, parents' names and cost of arrangements. The collection is of value to those researching the funeral business in Cleveland, Ohio, particularly that of Boyd Funeral Home, as well as those interested in genealogy, mortality and occupational information on African Americans in Cleveland. click here to view the searchable index to the funeral records contained in this collection
