Why choose to cremate my pet?

Losing a beloved pet can be difficult. People may choose to cremate their pets for various reasons. Cremation can often provide a sense of closure and allows owners to honour their beloved companion in a dignified way. 


Cremation offers flexibility in memorialising your pet, as the ashes can be kept in a casket, scattered in a meaningful place, or used in memorial jewellery. 


Additionally, some people opt for cremation due to practical reasons such as limited space, as it eliminates the need for a burial plot. Ultimately, cremation offers a personalised and respectful way to say goodbye to a cherished family pet. 

What is an individualised cremation?

Individual pet cremation refers to the process of cremating a pet separately from other animals. Individual cremation ensures you’ll only receive the ashes of your pet. Your pet undergoes a respectful cremation, with options tailored to your wishes
