Special/Private Cremation

With this service, pets are placed in individual positions within the cremation chamber, the individual cremains are processed and returned to the owner in a receptacle of their choice.

Communal Cremation

This is a cost-effective option provided as a humane means of final disposal. Pets are cremated together in groups. This service caters to pet owners who do not wish to retain the remains of their loyal friend but still wish for their pet to have the highest duty of care.

Note:
Cremation is the process of reducing the body of a pet by exposing it to intense heat. Through high heat and evaporation, the body is reduced to its basic mineral form. Although the remains are commonly called “ashes”, the correct term is “cremains”. Humane and safe, cremation is the accepted manner of disposition, endorsed by animal lovers and doctors.

Container Options
Ashes Only (Scatterbox)

White cardboard box wrapped in tissue paper with ribbon and rose. By far our most preferred option, your pet is elegantly presented to you in one of four sizes (for a small, medium, large or extra large pet), and caters to those who wish to retain their beloved pet’s remains for burial or dispersal.

 

 

Wooden Casket

Ashes returned in a wooden casket available in a selection of sizes with an engraved plaque for remembrance or burial.
Note:
Many items can be personalised to best represent how your pet impacted you and your family’s life. We offer engravings on gold plate and/or photo plaque that can be attached to the wooden casket.
