Philadelphia PA Jewish cemeteries #general

My son who is involved with Jewish genealogy suggested I email you
directly on a matter that I have responsibility for- getting the father's
name to place on a stone in a cemetery for a neighbor who recently passed
away. We have no way of learning the Jewish name right now even though
we have info on the father himself. It was suggested that as this man
died in 1939 or 1940 in Philadelphia, I get a list of all the
Philadelphia Jewish cemeteries in existence at that time, call each or
whomever might hold their records now if they are not active cemeteries
now, and ask if there is a "LB"(the father) buried there. A yes response
would then generate a visit by myself/son to the affirmative cemetery to
take a look at the stone and hopefully get the 'Jewish name >from there.
Could you email me such a list, or suggest where to go to get one? Or,
would you have any idea of a better way if such exists to get the needed
info(the survivors are estranged/intermarried and willingly handed me
this task - they have no clue).
Please respond on this directly to my email as listed. Thank you

S. Lieberman
