Do I need an ashpan?

If you are burning only wood, an ash pan is not required. Wood is better burnt on a bed of ash, and you would only shovel ash out when too much builds up. Smokeless fuel and coal produces more ash than wood and needs air to come up through the grate to burn effectively and an ash pan tends to sit under the grate for ease of emptying.
