We chose Ashton Brookes because of the excellent service we received when my Father died, so they were the obvious choice when my Mother died in May. We were looked after by Alison who was extremely professional, caring & respectful. Nothing was too much trouble & we were well informed about the whole process. Alison took the stress of arranging a funeral & cremation away. Everything went like clockwork on the day leaving us free to grieve and say goodbye to Mum. We would not hesitate in recommending Ashton Brookes for their excellent service & care.

I would like to thank Clive and the Ashton Brookes team for their support for the funeral arrangement and their care. Clive and the team have provided very high-quality service, being very capable, professional and thoughtful. They arranged a dignified and comforting funeral that brought peace to my husband, me and the family. Moreover, I am so grateful to Clive and the team for being so kind and understanding. They have gone out of their way to give me kindness and care. They guided me with patience through this very painful process that was completely unknown to me. I don’t know how to express my gratitude enough to show my appreciation and recognition of the tremendous support I have received.

From the first contact with Emma through to the funeral service we couldn't have been happier with the service from Ashton Brookes Altrincham.

They made the whole process as smooth as possible in a very caring way. Emma guided us through our choices to make the funeral of our dearly loved Mum as special as we wanted it to be.

After asking us several questions Emma was able to identify a perfect celebrant, choose a suitable coffin and flowers (which were absolutely beautiful) and arranged a car for the family which wasn't included in Mum's funeral plan.

On the day, Clive and the team were absolutely fantastic. They guided us through what was a very emotional situation in a completely caring manner which took all the worry away from us and allowed us to concentrate on the service.

We could not recommend the team at Ashton Brookes Altrincham more highly.

Clive is such a wonderful man. I unfortunately have had you use him three times now for my immediate family members .
He is kind and caring and I would not trust anyone else to do the final arrangements.
He made it easy and is a very much a one stop shop where you can do everything. I had to call the office a couple of times and the other members were equally kind and professional
He also recommended Hazel Church to be the officiant who was truly lovely

We found Ashton Brookes service from start to finish highly professional and caring. Right from the day Clive came to visit our Mum to speak to her about arranging her funeral, he put her mind at ease and she found it very easy to talk to Clive about her funeral arrangements. When the time came for us to say our farewells to our mum we found her to be made up beautifully, she looked totally at peace. We were treated with kindness and dignity at the chapel when visiting mum.
The day before her funeral we noticed one of the undertakers outside our home, it seems he had took the time to make sure of the journey from our home to her final resting place went without any hitches, we took a longer journey but that was because it was an early morning funeral and the route they took prevented us from being held up in rush hour traffic, little things like that made all the difference to us. Clive was amazing on the day and we can not thank him and the rest of staff enough for all they did for us.
