The History Of Mccourt And Trudden Funeral Home

 

In 1927, Hugh Trudden founded what would eventually become McCourt & Trudden Funeral Home Inc.  Mr. Trudden established the funeral home in the Richmond Hill section of Queens, NY.  He provided undertaking and mortuary services to the families of the greater Queens area, serving with great dedication and compassion.  Upon his passing, his wife Hannah Trudden took over as owner and would eventually marry Jim McCourt.  Mr. McCourt went on to earn his funeral director’s license and would continue the tradition of caring and distinction in Richmond Hill.  

Hugh and Hannah Trudden’s boys Eugene and Donald would eventually take over the business.  In 1959, they sold the Richmond Hill location and purchased Talmadge Funeral Home in Farmingdale, NY.  The Farmingdale location became what is now known today as McCourt & Trudden Funeral Home Inc.  One of 5 boys, Eugene’s son Joseph would continue the family tradition as a licensed funeral director and eventual owner in the late 80’s.  Joe became a bedrock of the Farmingdale community, eventually serving as Mayor from 1992-2004.  He also served the Farmingdale community and beyond as a lifetime member of the Farmingdale Fire Department and a highly decorated Suffolk County Detective for 20 years before retiring in 1993 to direct his full attention to the funeral home. This included an expansion of both the funeral home and parking facilities in 1990. 

Joe and his wife Rosemary raised two sons, Joseph Jr. and William.  They watched proudly as the boys continued the family tradition and became licensed funeral directors in 2008 and 2011 respectively.  With the collaboration and input of the entire family, a significant renovation to the funeral home in 2013 has led to top of the line facilities to go along with the very best care and service the Trudden’s have been providing since 1927.  With the sudden passing of Joe Jr. in 2014, and the loss of Joe Sr. to cancer in 2015, Rosemary Trudden has taken ownership with the leadership and guidance of William right by her side.  

Today, William Trudden continues the legacy handed down from Hugh Trudden 90 years ago by providing dignified and affordable funeral and cremation services to the greater Farmingdale area.
