Can someone tell me when Hoffman[s] Funeral Home in Denver CO went out of business and what might have happened to their records. I am interested in services performed in 1936. Thanks

Locating those records might cause head aches. But, why not contact the larger cemeteries in the Denver area and see if they have the information you seek? Look on the Denver Library's web site, Western history section for those cemetery's. Some are good on the phone, others not. But usually you get a response from written contact at sometime.
Good Hunting,
Frank
