About Us

James Ashton, Edward McHugh and Macgregors have been providing a service to the community arranging and conducting funerals for a century, and today are the largest Independent Funeral Directors in the Dundee and Tayside area, providing a full range of services for burial and cremation to the bereaved and their families at their time of need.

In 1984 we acquired the long established firm of Edward McHugh and relocated to our present premises at 132/136 Hilltown, Dundee.

In 1996 we acquired a site at 188 High Street, Lochee, Dundee and proceeded to design and build our newest Funeral Home to the highest of modern standards.

In 1997 we acquired the long established firm of Macgregors Funeral Directors in St Andrews.

We are long standing members of the National Association of Funeral Directors and fully subscribe to the Association's Code of Conduct. We are also members of The Society of Allied & Independent Funeral Directors.

The company employs both male and female staff trained to a high standard of professionalism, many of whom hold the National Association of Funeral Directors Diploma in Funeral Directing. The company also employs embalmers who are members of the British Institute of Embalmers.
