Contains records and ledgers on services provided at the Carey Hand Funeral Home. Materials include memoranda regarding the death and burial of deceased individuals, registers of the death, burial and payment information, plots in the Greenwood and Palm cemeteries, financial records, cremation records, ambulance service records, vault storage records, and Central Florida veterans' and Orlando Air Base servicemen's death, burial, and military information. The Carey Hand mortuary business was founded in 1885 by Elijah Hand, Orlando's first embalmer. In 1907 Hand's son, Carey, took over the business and continued to run it until his death in 1947. His wife sold the business the following year, and subsequent owners have kept the Carey Hand name. In 1969 the Carey Hand and Cox-Parker Funeral Homes merged.
