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
Care of your pet's body when we are closed
Wrap clean towels at head and bottom end of your pet
Fully wrap him or her in a fresh, clean old sheet or pillow case depending on size
Make sure there are no gaps so that the body is protected, like a nice secure package
Place in a pet carrier, lidded box or pet bed again, depending on size
Now put in as cold a room as you have or, if safe, a garage or outbuilding that is cool
Place away from any wall that absorbs warmth from the sun
Ideally, put freezer blocks around body or simple bags of ice from the supermarket wrapped in newspaper or tea towels.
Remember warmth and pests are your main enemy so cold and protection are the key.
