Our History

Anderson Funeral Home & Cremation Services has been serving the Saint Paul and surrounding communities since 1915.

The firm was founded as the "Johnson & Sons" funeral home at 932 Payne Avenue. Harold began working at their funeral home in 1933. The funeral home was purchased by Harold & Melba Anderson from the Johnson family in 1943. Funeral Director Harold Anderson was joined in his profession by his sons, Ronald Anderson in 1964 and Jeffrey Anderson in 1979.

The funeral home eventually outgrew its facility on Payne Avenue, and, in 1967, a new building was constructed on Arcade Street (Highway 61) a block south of Phalen Park Golf Course. Harold Anderson died in November of 1988, but his sons continue to operate the mortuary. Jeff's daughter, Emily, and Ron's son, Kyle, have since joined in the family business.

Anderson Funeral Home stands as a testament to care and concern for families of the Saint Paul and surrounding suburbs who have suffered the death of a loved one. Many funeral homes today have been acquired by large multi-national corporations, but we at Anderson Funeral Home have always prided ourselves on providing the personal service every family deserves at a fair and reasonable cost.
