Welcome

Here at Memorial Wood we have been helping pet owners in their time of need since 2011.

As devoted pet lovers ourselves we understand how very hard it is to say goodbye to our best friends and companions.

Individual-only pet cremation is offered and we do not undertake any form of mass or 'communal' cremation or incineration of waste.

We are a small, caring service in a lovely rural setting and can ensure that
each and every pet is handled with kindness.
Our crematorium is located on our arable farm here on the Nottinghamshire / Leicestershire borders, with a reception office at our farmhouse.

Our responsive service means that your pet's ashes will be available in 48 hrs*
*We are closed on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday

About Us

We set up our small, caring pet crematorium on our farm in 2011. Since then we have gained the trust and respect of many local veterinary practices and of pet owners from a wide area surrounding us in Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire. Now we also see friends and family recommendations.

Pet Cremation Services

Memorial Wood only undertakes INDIVIDUAL cremation on our own premises, and guarantees that your pet is cremated on it's own and their ashes only are returned to you.
You are welcome to make saying goodbye as personal as you wish. You could leave a favourite toy,
treats, flowers, photos or a letter, you may want a collar left on, or for their own blanket to be laid over them.
You may want your pet cremated just as they are!, but whatever you want, your pet will be handled with care and kindness at all times.

Bring Your Pet Yourself

I am only a phone call away and, generally, do not need too much notice.
We have a small quiet, private room where your pet may be laid and you can spend time saying a final goodbye.
Arrangements will be discussed in my reception office where you will see all of the caskets and urns available to choose from.
Your pet's ashes will be available within a day or two for collection, or whenever you feel ready to come.

Arrange Collection of Your Pet

We can collect your pet from your vets or home, this may incur a charge - see Prices

Caskets and Urns

We have an excellent selection of caskets and urns to choose from, and most owners will wish to keep their pet's ashes at home or scatter them in their own special, favourite place.
Uniquely, though, we have our own scattering ground which you may wish to use.

Memorial Wood

A beautiful fledgling wood with little paths mowed through it and benches for you to sit back on, reflect and enjoy the peace and quiet.You may scatter your pet's ashes here around the tree of your choice. A special tree marker plaque will be engraved with your own chosen wording. A final, permanent resting place in a completely natural setting.
In the summer you will hear Sky Larks singing high over head, they are a ground nesting bird who have always made their home here at Highfields. Very often a Hare suddenly bolts out of the long grass! You would never know it had been there.

The Memorial Wood Option with tree dedication costs £75
There are no annual fees thereafter.
Also available for pet's ashes you may already have and wish to lay to rest in a permanent natural setting.


Highfields Farm and the convent are private property. Memorial Wood is open to customers of the pet crematorium only, thank you.
