Private Individual Cremations

A private cremation ensures that your pet’s ashes can be returned to you in a vessel that you will be invited to select during your visit to Summerleaze. We have a wide range of tasteful and dignified urns and caskets to choose from. Some of these can be seen here. Certificates of cremation are also available for private cremations.

You may also care to scatter your pet's ashes in our garden of remembrance. This is only available when a private cremation has been performed.

Communal Cremations

You can contact Summerleaze by telephone or email to arrange an appointment to bring your pet to us. Should you choose to come to Summerleaze, you will be shown into the Farewell Room, where soft music plays. Here, you can say your final farewells and take some time to reflect.

Unfortunately, there can be no ashes returned following this service. However, you may obtain a certificate of cremation upon request.

We provide a collection service for many veterinary practices throughout England & Wales. If your chosen veterinary practice is one of our clients, it is likely that they can make arrangements to collect your pet for cremation from the practice.

Planning for Goodbye

The Garden of Remembrance at Summerleaze

Our beautifully maintained and ornate gardens are quiet, peaceful and secluded and open for you to visit – but only by appointment. Your pet's ashes can be interred or scattered in our gardens. With interned ashes, each plot in the garden has a unique place in our plotting grid so that your pet’s plot is completely identifiable. Each plot is available for purchase at a small fee for periods of 10 years.

Headstones, small potted shrubs and small ornaments can also be placed near your plot to commemorate your pet’s life and passing.

Bringing Your Pet to Us



No words can describe how wonderful and valuable this place is. When we finally had to put our Labrador to sleep after a long illness we couldn’t bear to take him home. Summerleaze allowed us to come at very late notice straight from the vets for a personalised service.

When we lost our beautiful boy Bryn just a few weeks ago we decided to have him cremated and his ashes returned to us what a lovely peaceful place Summerleaze is and the staff are truly amazing thoughtful compassionate and caring thank you so much.

Summerleaze was used by our vet who told me they had excellent reputation. His lovely scattering tube was in a box decorated with little coloured corn sheaf. He will be going into a beautiful garden pot planted with a special rose. So pleased he was treated with care and dignity.
