“They evidence a constant refusal to tolerate compromise in the quality of their products. As you would appreciate, in a time of loss a family sees the coffin as the last gift of importance that they can give to their loved one and seek and deserve the highest qualities of workmanship and construction. With an Ashton [Expression Coffins] product our company is always confident that we are meeting that need.”

– Rowan Steer, Executive Director Integrity Funerals

“I would like to say a massive thank you to Ashton Manufacturing for the introduction of the Expression Coffin range. I have asked Steve & in particular Josh to perform some minor miracles for our families. Each time they have both produced an outstanding effort to fulfill the needs of our families. Every time we have used an Expression Coffin whether from the predesigned coffins to the highly detailed personalised ones Ashton’s [Expression Coffins] have managed to not only meet my time frame but excelled in the quality of the coffin, & this has made a massive difference in not only the families involved but everyone who attended the funeral service. Thank you from all of us in Ulladulla.”

– Simon Law, Milton Ulladulla Funeral Services

“Ashton’s have been supplying us for around ten or so years now and I would highly recommend them, the quality of the coffins is second to none, always perfect with very efficient delivery times. In this era technology and trends are moving fast, the new Expression Coffins are also a sign that Ashton’s are moving towards the future. The warehouse in Mittagong has also been a great benefit to us for urgent coffin deliveries. Thank you very much for your continued support and excellent service.”
