Goodwin Funeral Home Death Records 1920-1969
The Goodwin Funeral Home, one of the oldest operating funeral homes in Manchester, recently donated their death return records to the Manchester Historic Association. These documents record information about individuals whose funerals were managed by the Goodwin Funeral Home, spanning the years 1874 to 1969. Information includes date and place of death, residence at time of death, cause of death, occupation, names of parents, and place of internment.
This valuable resource has been digitized through a generous anonymous gift to the MHA. Since that time, MHA volunteers have been developing a finding aid, organized alphabetical by last name, but which can also be searched by first name and, when applicable, maiden name. A finding aid for all death returns from 1920 to 1969 has been completed and can now be accessed from our website by clicking here.
Please be aware that this continues to be a work in progress and the finding aid will be expanded as more years are completed. If you have any questions or would like a digital copy of a specific death return listed in the finding aid, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The MHA archives includes a bound volume of issues of the New Hampshire Labor Review, Vol. 6, No. 12 (November 1929) through Vol. 8, No. 11 (October 1931). The Labor Review was a monthly magazine for employees of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company. Each issue contains ”Amoskeag News” with reports about employees in various departments, as well as numerous advertisements and various articles. Finding aids have been created for each of the three types of articles contained in the Review. Click below to access these finding aids. Items are arranged chronologically by issue, but can be searched by name.
