All pets that come to us are cremated separately with great care and respect ensuring that you receive your own pets ashes. We treat our clients pets as we would want our own pets to be treated. We provide a certificate of cremation that is returned with your pets ashes. 

We can collect your pet either from your home or your chosen veterinary practice. Alternatively you may prefer to bring your pet along to our farewell room where you can spend some time saying goodbye.

Please ask your veterinary practice if they use us. If they do not we can still collect your pet from them.Some practices use the large nationwide crematoriums but it is common for owners to prefer for their pet to be cared for by their local crematorium where a personal service is guaranteed.

Catherine or Lucy will hand deliver your pets ashes to your home at a day and time that is convenient for yourself or if preferred you can come and collect them from us. We NEVER post ashes or send by courier, they are far too precious.
