A welcoming Cleveland funeral home

Chapel at Cummings & Davis Funeral HomeA longstanding member of the East Cleveland community, guided for years by former Cleveland Mayor Wallace Davis, Cummings & Davis built a reputation on treating people like family. We work hard to recognize the needs of each person, with the goal of providing a customized experience that honors a special loved one.

Our brick and white wood building is a comfortable place to plan a funeral or cremation. With plenty of parking in back and a wide ramp for those who need it, the funeral home and our experienced team are always here for you. The funeral home chapel is a flexible space that holds around 225 people. It can be set up with rows of chairs for a traditional memorial or tables and chairs for a more contemporary funeral and reception. For the latter, we are happy to arrange catering—from a breakfast buffet to a sit-down dinner, cake and coffee to an ice cream social. We can decorate the room any way you choose, turning the space into a baseball fan’s paradise, a fisherman’s dream, a bookworm’s tribute or a movie lover’s last red carpet event. Our mission is to create memorable memorials that tell unique stories.

We pride ourselves on attention to detail, and the passion we feel for our role in the community is evident in our work. Years of accolades from J.D. Power, as well as praise from our client families, have assured us that we succeed in exceeding expectations.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

History

Exterior at Cummings & Davis Funeral HomeCummings & Davis opened in 1931. After Paul Cummings died in 1971, Wallace and Evelyn Davis took over and moved the funeral home from Cedar Avenue in Cleveland to its current location on Euclid Avenue in East Cleveland. Even as owner of the funeral home, Wallace was City Council president and then mayor of East Cleveland. Elected mayor in 1990, he held that post for three terms, while continuing to serve families at the funeral home with the utmost dignity and respect. 

When Evelyn retired from BP in 1992 after 36 years, she got her funeral director’s license and joined her husband at the funeral home. The Davis family sold the business to Wilson Financial Group in 2012. It was at that time that the Euclid Avenue facility saw updates and an expansion. 

Today, Cummings & Davis Funeral Home is part of the Dignity Memorial network. We continue to uphold the traditions and integrity valued by the Davis family each and every day.

"We didn't know when. But my mom and I knew my dad was going to pass away within the next six months. So, we made the choice to preplan for his funeral. With the encouragement of a close friend, we chose, Cummings & Davis Funeral Home in East Cleveland Ohio. Almost exactly 5 years later, my mom passed away on May 26th, 2022, and although she reside

d two hours away, I again chose Cummings & Davis Funeral Home. Why? Because just like they did with my dad. I knew they would make 'me feel' as though my mom was in good hands, just resting or sleeping at home comfortably with Family. Carla Hodge, the manager of Cummings & Davis and her colleagues took such good care of my mom. But also took good care of me as I was preparing for my mom's funeral. Carla was so kind and patient. I didn't feel rushed, and she didn't push me to choose funeral arrangements that I didn't necessarily need or want. But, kindly guided me when I needed a little help in making some decisions that were out of my comfort zone. I appreciated her expertise and professionalism. I felt so comfortable and that means so much when you have just lost a dear loved one, you need all the care and warmth you can get. The day of the funeral, Carla allowed me to come early to decorate for the viewing, family visitation and funeral. I was able to make it feel more like a home with flowers and my moms' pictures dispersed in different areas so family members and friends could reminisce. Everything was beautiful…I was well pleased with how everything turned out. Carla and her team did everything they could to accommodate me, even meeting me a few times at non-business hours to make sure everything was taken care of. I was also impressed with the quality and price of the funeral arrangements. Carla and her colleagues at Cummings and Davis give allot more than they receive. They give their time, energy and resources in order that your loved one have a dignified resting place and where family and friends can find contentment and a peace. So, despite how the east Cleveland Ohio area may look, when your loved one has passed away and you need a resting place for them and one that you can feel at home also, I whole heartedly recommend Cummings and Davis Funeral Home."
