In a changing world where many businesses have been swallowed up by large corporations the McMullan family still offer a service with traditional values within the profession based on the principle that in providing a service for bereaved families, funeral directors must accept responsibility for the choices made by families at their most vulnerable time.

Choice is important, there should be no regrets, but when the burden of cost for one of those choices falls on the bereaved, the accountability and sense of responsibility of your advisor is no less important.
