Saying your final farewell to your beloved feathered friend is as important to you as any other pet owner, and that’s why we offer the same service to all of our beloved pets.
Bird cremation and memorials are quite common, we’ve paid tributes to many feathered friends including parrots, budgies, cockatiels, cockatoos, canaries, lovebirds, chickens and more.
Any pet, irrespective of their species, holds their own special place in our hearts and all deserve the same caring tribute.
When we lose our beloved pet bird, it can be heart-breaking. We want to help make your final tribute to your feathered pet an easy process and have listed below the many ways you can commemorate your pet’s life and friendship.

Pet Bird Cremation
At PCS we offer two forms of cremation for your feathered pet.
Individual cremations ensure that your feathered friend is cremated singularly within a clean and private chamber. With the individual cremation, you are guaranteed that the cremains you receive, or those placed into our memorial garden, will be only the ashes of your beloved pet.
A communal cremation is the chosen choice for many pet owners. Your pet will be cremated within a small group of others and the ashes are either stored in a memorial centre or scattered within the grounds of the crematorium or cemetery. Perhaps for many, the communal cremation gives a sense of togetherness, to be alongside other beloved pets on their final journey.
Both cremations are carried out with the utmost respect and care, and there is no right or wrong choice.
Occasionally, pet owners opt for memorial over cremation. This is a decision that is unique to the individual pet owner.
