The Story of Davis Funeral Homes in NH

The Davis Funeral Home was established in 1842 by Moses Davis, a local “grave stone maker”. It is the oldest among all Nashua funeral homes and the oldest established business with its roots in, and still maintaining its office within the geographic boundaries of Nashua. It is the oldest funeral home in Hillsborough County, the second oldest funeral home in NH and amongst the oldest in the nation.

Four generations of the Davis family continued the operation of the business until 1972 when Albert A. Davis sold the business and the name to his associate, Robert S. Ainscow. It is presently owned and operated by Norman E. Hall who has been with the Davis Funeral Home since 1972 and acquired the business in 1987.

Since its founding, the Davis Funeral Home has served Nashua and the surrounding communities with dedication, commitment, and service. Through its high standards and reputation in the community it was selected for membership in the Selected Independent Funeral Homes (SIFH) in 1971. Membership in this international organization is by invitation and is extended only to independent firms having achieved the highest standards of service and integrity. This firm, as a condition of membership, agrees to adhere to SIFH’s standards and Code of Good Funeral Practice, created and dedicated in the public interest. Only one funeral home in NH is usually accorded this honor and the Davis Funeral Home is proud to be so designated.

Independent funeral homes, such as the members of Selected Independent Funeral Homes, have worked in their respective communities for generations. Selected Independent Funeral Homes is the world’s oldest and largest association of independently-owned and community based funeral service providers. The association believes in a connection to the community, accountability to families served, and the need to maintain an exemplary reputation well beyond minimum professional standards. Their commitment is that a family receives the best information, the best care and the greatest flexibility in developing a funeral or memorial service that meets the family’s needs.
