HELLO AND WELCOME.

DURING THESE UNUSUAL AND CHALLENGING TIMES WE ARE OPEN AS USUAL.
IT IS A BRIEFER APPOINTMENT THAN WE WOULD USUALLY OFFER AND I WILL GREET YOU IN OUR COURTYARD.
YOU MAY HAVE THE OFFICE AND LAYING ROOM TO YOURSELF TO SAY YOUR FINAL GOODBYES.
ALSO, WE STILL OFFER COLLECTION FROM YOUR VET LOCALLY OR CAN ARRANGE COLLECTION FROM HOME OR FURTHER AFIELD THROUGH A PRIVATE PET AMBULANCE (CHARGED).



Care of your pet's body when we are closed
Ideally, when we are closed, and if at all possible, your pet should be stored properly in cold storage at your vets. But if you are at home and the vets are closed , the following guide will help for keeping your pet for up to two days only...
Wrap clean towels around 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, a nice secure package
Place your pet 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. These can be replaced if they thaw,
Remember warmth and pests are your main enemy so cold and protection are the key.
During the year we are open weekdays only and closed on Bank Holiday Mondays

WE ARE OPEN WEEKDAYS ONLY, 9am - 6pm
Closed on Bank Holiday Mondays
We do not operate an out of hours service I'm afraid.

About Us

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 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 see pet owners coming to us from the nearby borders of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire. Now we also see many 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.
WE DO NOT OFFER AN ATTENDED CREMATION.

Bring Your Pet Yourself

I am only a phone call away and, generally, do not need too much notice but you will need to book an appointment.
I can usually receive your pet on the day that you call, unless it is later in the afternoon.
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 arrange collection of your pet from a local vets within a 10 mile radius free of charge.
For vets further afield, in the city centre or from your home, we can arrange a private pet ambulance. We need a some prior notice for this, ideally 24 hours, and it does incur a fee - 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.
