The Pet Crematorium Reception


Pets are our life and we take our responsibilities to you, the pet owner, very seriously. We want you to receive such exceptional care for both your pets and yourselves that you feel you could not have been in better hands and will want to make sure your friends and family all use our services when they need us.

Take a little time to look at what we can do for you. 


  The Pet Crematorium

 Trust us to handle the cremation for your pet and you will receive a level of service that cannot be exceeded. That is because we have built our service for you. In a sector that is dominated by veterinary practices selling third party services that are often geared more to the surgery’s needs than your own we will ensure your pet is handled with care and respect at all times and the cremation carried out with exact precision ensuring you receive a genuine cremation service that you can see at any stage. We do not limit you to an individual cremation as our communal service is carried out with the same level of care. We always work as if you are standing next to us and, indeed, you are welcome to inspect us and see any part of the service. Always contact us if you want the finest cremation service for your pet. We have arrangements with some veterinary surgeries who want the best for their clients and we can guide you to them if you wish. However, we are always here for you and you are always welcome to bring your pet to us or ask us to collect.

The Pet Cemetery

Pet owners like yourself have been coming to us since 1969 for the formal burial of their pets. Now, as well as full burials with coffins and plots marked by headstones or plaques we have plots for the burial of individual ashes, areas for the burial of communal ashes and a green burial bed which provides a solution for those of you who do not like the idea of cremation but do not necessarily want the formality of a cemetery plot. Priced at an equivalent level to cremation green burials are marked by the planting of a shrub.
