What's the difference between Private and Communal Cremation?

Private Cremation commemorates your pet’s life by way of:

Our brochure and website offer the following options:
• Wooden Vessels
• Memorial Urns
• Garden Urns & Plaques

 Our thoughtful team will take special care of your pet throughout their journey with us. Their journey is commemorated with our Cremation Certificate, Poem and signature XO Candle.


Communal Cremation offers the following for your pet:

• Cremation in a Communal Chamber with other pets

It is important to understand that your pet will be cremated alongside other pets in one designated Communal Chamber and that ashes will not be returned home.

Memorial products and keepsakes are not available with Communal Cremation.
