About

Located on Euclid Avenue in East Cleveland, Ohio, just up from University Hospitals and the famed Cleveland Clinic, Cummings & Davis Funeral Home has cared for families since 1931. With a professional team and relaxed atmosphere, the funeral home helps people from all backgrounds celebrate life.

Our services include traditional funerals, contemporary memorial services, graveside ceremonies, basic and full-service cremation, pre-planning and grief support.

A welcoming Cleveland funeral home

Entryway of a funeral home with a Life Well Celebrated welcome mat.A longstanding member of the East Cleveland community, guided for years by former Cleveland Mayor Wallace Davis, who still lives with his wife, Evelyn, at the funeral home, 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.

Personalized cremation services

Cremation is an increasingly common decision, but not everyone knows that there are many cremation choices. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and the different memorialization options. From a direct cremation without a service or a witness to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this option.

Pre-plan a funeral at Cummings & Davis

This bronze and granite marker makes a memorable but simple statement amidst well established flora in this private garden.  Planning a funeral ahead of time allows you to make clear-headed, stress-free decisions about the kind of service you’d like. When you pre-plan your funeral, you select the things that will tell your story best and relieve your family of the emotional and financial burden of planning for you. You also lock in today’s prices—something that inevitably saves money. Pre-planning discussions can sometimes be awkward, but we can help with hard conversations. A dedicated team member knows just how to explain your options and support you the whole way through.

History

Cummings & 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.
