A dignified farewell for horses, ponies and donkeys
At Rossendale Pet Crematorium & Memorial Gardens we offer a gentle, kind and sensitive service with care and consideration. Upon receiving your call we will discuss your wishes with you and provide you with support and advice to ensure a personal and fitting farewell is arranged for your equine friend.
Whether you need us to collect from your stable, paddock, veterinary hospital or home, peace of mind is assured. We can coordinate with your vet and we will respectfully collect your horse, pony or donkey in our specialist equine vehicle. Your companion will then be transported with dignity for individual or communal cremation, according to your wishes.
Call 01706 213 810 to discuss your wishes.
Your equine companion will be cremated individually in an equine cremator that can accommodate any size of horse in its entirety. A certificate confirming the individual cremation will be provided.
Full Ashes Returned - The ashes of your equine friend will be presented in a hand selected casket, which you can collect from the crematorium where you will receive a warm welcome. Alternatively, you can request to have the ashes returned to your home or veterinary practice (for an additional cost).
No Ashes Returned - If you are seeking the reassurance of simply knowing your companion has been individually cremated then this option might suit you. You may like to consider a sentimental keepsake to remember your equine friend by.
Full Ashes Divided - You may wish to receive the ashes back in two or more caskets to share with co-partners and riders. Or you may opt for some of the ashes to be placed into a smaller container for scattering or a casket to keep.
Your equine friend will be cremated with dignity and their ashes will then be scattered in our peaceful memorial gardens. You may wish to request a certificate of communal cremation or a sentimental keepsake.
Burial - With our burial service your equine friend will be laid to rest in a plot lined with hay, where you can say goodbye and place a headstone
Interment - Ask us about arranging to have your companion’s ashes interred in our gardens with an inscribed plaque or gravestone to mark the spot.
Ask about receiving your companion’s plaited forelock, mane or tail and shoes back presented in a Chester Keepsake Chest.
