The service we had from Davis McMullan was excellent and we could not fault anything. Mark Loughran explained everything and did not rush me or my mother to make decisions. We were always kept up to date and any questions were answered. On the day we the funeral staff were compassionate and caring and the lead Funeral Director treated us just as we wanted her too, again could not fault anything. The celebrant Jamie recommended by Davis McMullan brought to life my dad in the way he spoke, fabulous. I would highly recommend the service offered by Davis McMullan.

The service provided by the Runcorn branch I used for my step fathers was really really good.
The care and understanding and respect taken while organising the funeral was second to none and very helpful and considerate.
I know, I am meant to avoid people’s names but had to say that Lorraine at your Runcorn branch was tremendous with the help she gave me during such a stressful time!.
Lorraine was the reason I used your services at dignity as she was recommended by a friend who told me she done a wonderful job for them at a parents funeral.
Needless to say they were right .... and because if Lorraine I would definitely recommend your services to my freinds and relatives!!.
Thankyou for everything it’s really appreciated.

Anyone who’s in need of help after a bereavement simply MUST use Davis McMullan. From my first contact with Lorraine, at the Runcorn office, I was made to feel completely at ease and assured. She quite simply took care of everything and is still helping me some 3 weeks after my fathers funeral. Lorraine and Danielle were always available and answered every query that I had. There support during our difficult time was phenomenal. My fathers funeral was a beautiful affair and the only way to describe it is faultless from start to finish. To say that Lorraine was professional from start to finish is doing her a disservice. And all I can say, from the bottom of my heart, is thank you. I wish I could give more than 5 stars in this review.
