When I got my "previously loved" Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the previous owner, who was very meticulous, kindly provided me with all the service records -- highly redacted, of course. He took a sharpie and blacked out his name and address, credit card number, etc. I told you, he was meticulous. And yes, Aston Martin also has a policy of not giving out copies of the service records.
Although your vehicle's complete service history is computerized (assuming the previous owner only took it to the dealer for service) and they can look it up for you, there's something about printed service records/invoices that just seem more "tangible" for lack of a better word. That's why I always keep all my service records/invoices and religiously get the service book that came with the owner's manual stamped by the dealer. Not necessary since it is all computerized but great for resale.
