James Ashton & Son is an independently run and privately owned funeral directors that caters to local families in Dundee, St Andrews and surrounding areas. Collectively, James Ashton, Edward McHugh and Macgregors have been providing the very best standard of funeral services for over a century, forming lots of strong relationships within the local community during this time. We offer a modern service combined with traditional values and professional service together with excellent value with our prices starting in Dundee for a direct cremation at £1099. In 1984, James Ashton acquired the long-established firm of Edward McHugh, strengthening the company's already renowned standards of professional service. The business also relocated to its present location in Hilltown, Dundee, shortly after the acquisition was completed. In 1996, a further funeral home site was secured in Lochee, Dundee, with the building being completely renovated to the highest of modern standards. Just one year later, in 1997, James Ashton incorporated Macgregors Funeral Directors (based in St Andrews) into the current firm, adding an even greater depth of funeral experience to his business. As long-standing members of the NAFD (National Association of Funeral Directors), we fully support and subscribe to the Association's Code of Conduct, ensuring that all of our staff are trained to the utmost standard of professionalism, with many of them having attained the National Association of Funeral Directors Diploma in Funeral Directing.
