Second generation FD earns diploma

Daniel Devall, a second generation member of Warwickshire funeral directors D B Devall & Son, has successfully completed a professional qualification.

The son of D B Devall & Son founders David and Stephanie Devall, Daniel undertook a 12-month training course to achieve the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) Diploma at the association’s headquarters in Solihull.

Remarking on his new qualification, Daniel said: “I’ve always had a keen interest in the family business and, from the age of 13, I would come and assist after school and during the holidays. I took on a full time role when I turned 18 and as part of our commitment to up-skilling our workforce decided to train for the NAFD Diploma.

“With all four directors now qualified, it helps to reinforce our position as one of the premier independent providers of funeral services in the local area. I’m proud of D B Devall’s heritage and also of our plans for the future.

“As one of the largest independent funeral directors in the area it’s important that we are seen to provide an exemplary service. Every funeral is different so it’s crucial that we offer a bespoke service that meets the requirements of those concerned, in a dignified and caring manner.”

Managing director David Devall added: “We are all really proud that Daniel has succeeded in obtaining the NAFD Diploma. This latest accolade is great news for the business as we look to expand our service offering and build on our strong reputation in the local area.”
