Ways to Remember a Much-Loved Pet

There are many ways to remember a much-loved pet. Losing a life-long companion can feel overwhelming, for many families and finding ways to remember their pet can help with that sense of loss grief. It can also help you reflect on precious memories, as well as keeping those happy memories alive.

How can we help?

Saying goodbye is never easy; pets are unique as is their relationship with you. However you choose to remember your pet, they will always be with you in your heart and in the fond memories they’ve left behind. Please do ask us how we can help.

We offer the following memorials as part of our individual cremation service:

  • Precious Paw Imprint: A treasured keepsake of your pet’s paw, hand-prepared and gently taken by one of our professionals. The paw print is presented back to you in a photo display case, perfect for keeping at home to remember your beloved companion by.
  • Fur and Ash Keepsakes: Our token ash and fur keepsakes provide a wonderful way to remember your beloved pet. These are made by our professional team and can be kept in a memory or keepsake box or kept with your pet’s casket at home.
  • Memorial Jewellery: Using a token amount of ash, we can help you choose your own piece of jewellery from our range, or work with someone else of your choice.

Please visit our product page to view our full range of Caskets, Urns and Keepsakes.

Consider holding a small memorial service

With trusted friends and family, you could visit your pet’s favourite place to scatter their ashes or share fond memories. If you decide on a cremation, your local pet crematorium may offer a private Remembrance Room to say goodbye to your friend .

Decide if you would like any memorial keepsakes to remember your pet by, and if you would like to involve family, friends or children in putting these together.
