In 1967 a farmer sadly lost his loyal dog. Heart-broken, he buried his companion and erected a headstone to mark the grave. That stone, which may still be seen and read, is now surrounded by markers for many other faithful pets in our memorial gardens.
Overlooking the picturesque Rossendale Valley, our historic burial site is the final resting place for over three thousand individuals - including beloved pets, horses and humans. Our Memorial Gardens and Pet Cemetery is a truly beautiful and unique place for life-long friends and companions to be laid to rest.
We welcome visitors throughout the year, offering a serene place to reflect on treasured memories.
Over the years, we have met many truly wonderful people from all walks of life, each with their own story to tell. The stories we hear of unconditional love, warmth, courage and compassion and the feedback we receive is why we do what we do. Our dedicated aftercare advisors understand how important it is to give your pet a gentle and respectful farewell, and will ensure your wishes are carried out when the time comes.
