About James McMullan and Son, Funeral Directors

James McMullan & Son Funeral Directors have been caring for and serving our local community since 1905.


The late Andrew McMullan (Snr.), a tailor by profession, began undertaking funerals in his local village of Cullycapple around 1905 and in the 1960’s the business was transferred to its’ present location in Ballymoney. The business was then run by his son James and is now currently owned, and managed by his grandson Andrew McMullan, the third generation.

Andrew and his staff are professionally qualified, holding Diplomas in Funeral Directing and membership of the British Institute of Embalmers. In Ballymoney there are available a large funeral church, offices, coffin selection room and modern mortuary with another office and viewing rooms in the nearby town of Kilrea.

Our Vision and Values

Our aim as Independent Funeral Directors is to provide a caring, dignified and complete funeral service for our community.

We achieve this by our experience, our care and our respect for both the living and the dead, whilst striving to provide the best facilities and professional standards. Our dedication to those we serve, comes from a proud heritage where an appreciation of local customs and expectations has always existed.


We hold membership of the following associations:

The National Association of Funeral Directors has been helping Funeral Directors care for the bereaved since 1905 and is the longest established trade association within the profession.

The comforting knowledge that your loved ones are being cared for by professionals who are qualified members of the British Institute of Embalmers.

Membership in Selected Independent Funeral Homes is by invitation only, and is extended to funeral homes only after a thorough evaluation of their reputation, character, service and professionalism.

Planning Ahead

Many people wish to provide for their funeral expenses and a funeral prepayment plan is a caring, sensible and cost-effective way to do so.

We are extremely proud of the services we offer and believe them to be some of the best available. Our staff will assist you in making the right decisions.
