Helping Families and Friends Honour Their Loved One

See the Difference..

Thank you for taking the time to visit this page. It is very important and crucial for Ashby Funeral Care to ensure that everybody knows the difference between an ‘Independent’ business and a ‘corporate’ business. It has very recently been brought to our attention that Channel 4 has broadcast a program called ‘dispatches’. In a specific episode of dispatches, a reporter goes into undercover employment with a very well known corporate funeral care business. Alarmingly, a string of extremely disrespectfuldiscoveries were made, which has been made apparent, due to the abundant amount of major press releases; via Newspaper’s, whom have naturally seen the program, before it is aired to the public. We have provided access to all articles  in relation to the above matter. Please click on any of the below links, to be taken directly to the article of the respective Newspaper that have printed it.

 It is important that you (the community) knows that the disturbing events from the above press releases, do not reflect that of Ashby Funeral Care. It would be extremely beneficial for you to remember in the future to visit a funeral home and ask to see where the deceased will rest and be prepared. If you are refused, or are for what ever reason not happy with the area, you are within your rights to look elsewhere. This page is not here to discriminate or dampen the large-chain company that has made this approach to their care of deceased. We serve this page to educate those to ‘see the difference’ between a National company and an Independent company, and to point out once again that Independents have no connections or ties what so ever, with major national funeral care firms. Thank you.
