As members of the IAOPCC (International Association Of Pet Cemeteries & Crematories) we ensure that your pet is handled and cremated individually with great care and respect. Each pet is cremated on their own thus ensuring that you always receive your own pet’s ashes back. We provide a certificate that is returned to you with your pet’s ashes. You can find out more about the strict standards we follow on our IAOPCC Accreditation page.

This will depend on the veterinary practice that you use so it is important that you plan ahead to make sure you and your family get the service you want. Should you wish to use the farewell room, you should contact your local PCS crematorium directly to discuss the services you require before the sad day. This often gives people peace of mind - knowing their exact wishes will be carried out.

Our individual cremation service means that your pet will be handled and cremated on their own. As members of the IAOPCC (International Association Of Pet Cemeteries & Crematories) each pet is cremated individually. We do not cremate multiple pets simultaneously or communally cremate pets and then separate ashes out afterward. You can view our strict code of practice here.

You are welcome to bring your pet to any one of our crematoriums, just reach out to your local PCS crematorium to arrange in person.

Our Essex and North East sites also provide a home collection service.
