Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
We are sure you have plenty of questions and concerns regarding the cremation or burial of your special pet. Please find below some common frequently asked questions (FAQs), but please do not hesitate to call us on 01548 853785 if we can be of further assistance.
Will my pet be cremated on its own?
An individual cremation is quite simply when your pet is cremated on its own in a single compartment, so you can be assured you will receive only your pet’s ashes. We are members of the Association of Private Pet Cemeteries and Crematoria and follow its Code of Practice, which sets high standards.
What happens if I choose not to have an individual cremation?
All pets’ ashes are buried in our Pets Garden of Remembrance. Plaques can be purchased in memory of your pet.
Can I watch the cremation?
At this time, because of the location of our cremators, and safety to the public, we cannot provide this service.
Do you cremate horses?
We do not provide this service, as we only cremate domestic pets.
What are your prices?
We are happy to discuss prices over the phone, depending on the size and weight of your pet and your choice of casket. You can also refer to the price list on our Services and Prices Page.
Is there a collection service?
Yes, we have weekly collection days and would be happy to discuss this with you over the phone to arrange a suitable day for you.
Do you work with any local Vets?
How quickly will my pet's ashes be returned?
We return pet’s ashes as quickly as we can to your Veterinary Practice on days we are in the area, or alternatively ashes can be collected from our office.
Are we able to inspect your premises?
We welcome visitors to our offices at our Pets Garden of Remembrance in Churchstow and are always happy to explain our services and discuss any questions you may have. Please just ring first to arrange a suitable time.
