At James Ashton & Son, we’re always here when you need us – helping you through one of life’s most difficult moments and taking care of crucial arrangements in preparation for the send-off of your loved one.

As the region’s largest independent funeral directors, we have 4 long-established premises in Dundee and St Andrews, with our oldest branch in Dundee first opening its doors in 1910. For over 100 years we’ve provided an award-winning standard of service and care to families in the Dundee and Angus area.

As in life, we understand the importance of providing an attentive and personalised touch to every interaction, which is why we take the time to deliver a truly personal service for each and every funeral we arrange. Our locations offer multiple viewing rooms, private service rooms, on-site mortuary and embalmers, as well as our Mercedes fleet of hearses and limousines as required.

Through our trusted partners, we can also arrange flowers and other additional services for the day to ensure your loved ones’ wishes and any cultural or religious traditions can be respected.

To help us provide a tailored service, we also kindly ask you (where possible) to bring a recent photo of your loved one as well as any personal effects such as glasses or accessories as these can make an important difference and leave a positive lasting memory. We are also able to provide quality handmade robes, or if you prefer, you may choose to have your loved one dressed in their own clothes.
