History of Pelham Funeral Home

July 15, 1935 marked the day E. James Flood received his state licenses as an embalmer and funeral director after graduating from the New York School of Embalming and Restorative Art, NYC.

In 1946 Mr. Flood founded Pelham Funeral Home with his partner Nunzio Albero after purchasing and converting a home into the new business.

In 1971, Pelham Funeral Home, Inc. expanded to include a modern show room where families can choose a casket and other items for their loved ones who have passed.

Mr. Flood was the longest licensed undertaker and embalmer in New York state and was considered to be a legend in his profession until his passing in 2002. Over the years, he also formed a Trade Service with more than 25 funeral home accounts performing removals, embalming, restorative art, cosmetology, arrangements, and directing. The service included two full time embalmers, fully equipped removal cars, and CB radios. Mr. Flood also expanded this service to out-of-state funeral homes in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Mr. Flood also co-founded the Westchester Funeral Directors Association.  Clive's lifelong dream of owning a funeral home came to fruition in February of 2014.
