Pets Garden of Remembrance in Devon
The Pets Garden of Remembrance in Devon is open every day of the year and visitors are most welcome at any time.
Meadow Wood is the only Garden of Remembrance in Devon where owners, family and friends can visit and enjoy the peaceful setting overlooking a beautiful Devon valley. It is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is a special place to find comfort and to make lasting memories.
The gardens are carefully maintained enabling visitors to walk through a wooded copse and sit in this most tranquil and peaceful place with beautiful views of the countryside and remember your pet and the lifetime of love, pleasure and loyalty it has given you over the years.
At Meadow Wood all pets collected from veterinary surgeries are cremated at our own private premises about a mile from our Gardens and office. As members of the Association of Private Pet Cemeteries, we follow their Code of Practice, which sets high standards. All pets ashes are buried in our Garden of Remembrance, unless owners have requested ashes to be returned to them, and if in years to come owners wish to buy a plaque to remember them by, we can provide a special inscribed plaque or headstone, to place near the ashes.
Pets can also be buried in our Garden of Remembrance if the owner would prefer this, and we encourage owners to visit to choose a plot themselves. We can provide guidance of costing of headstones and plaques with inscriptions if pet owners decide to use this service. Owners are more than welcome to be present at the burial of their pet should they wish and we would be pleased to organise a special pet service by request.
Situated at the top of the Garden is a special resting place for pets called “The Sanctuary.”
The Sanctuary is a quiet, private place where you can take the time needed to say your final goodbyes.
Staff are always on hand to help, guide and support you at this difficult time.
