Pets at Rest – Guaranteed Individual Pet Cremation

Help in the Hardest of Times


Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is one of the most challenging experiences any pet owner can face. At First For Pets, we understand the heartbreak and emotions that come with this difficult time. That’s why we are here to offer support and assistance, not only with the practical aspects but also with the compassion and care you and your pet deserve.


Comprehensive Pet Cremation Services


When you choose First For Pets, we can assist you with the transport and arrangements for your beloved pet’s final journey. Our dedicated team will collect your pet from either your home or the veterinary clinic with the utmost respect and sensitivity. We will then transport them to our trusted partner crematorium, where they will receive a guaranteed, individual, certified cremation.


Prompt and Personalised Ashes Return


We understand that waiting for the return of your pet’s ashes can be a difficult and emotional process. At First For Pets, we strive to ease this burden by ensuring a prompt return. By the end of the next working day, we will personally deliver your pet’s ashes to your home, providing you with the comfort of having them close to you once again.


Comprehensive Fee Inclusions


To make the process as seamless as possible, our fees are all-inclusive. This means that the cost covers collection, all necessary transportation, and the choice of a scatter tube or a light wood or dark wood casket with a brass engraved nameplate as a personalised tribute to your beloved pet.


Access to Information on Pet Cremation


We understand that you may have questions or seek more detailed information about pet cremation. For a comprehensive understanding of the topic, we invite you to visit our Blog Page, specifically dedicated to Pet Cremation. There, you will find useful facts and insights to help you make informed decisions during this challenging time.


Support and Resources for Grieving Pet Owners


Losing a pet can be an overwhelming and distressing experience. It is common to feel shock, guilt, and denial during the grieving process. We want you to know that you are not alone. There are organisations available that can provide additional information, support, and guidance during this difficult time. We highly recommend reaching out to The Ralph Site and The Blue Cross, as they offer invaluable resources to help you cope with your grief.

We understand the bond you share with your pet, and we are here to support you every step of the way.

Our beloved dog Charlie passed away at home. Jeff collected Charlie and took him on his final journey to the crematorium and returned him back home. He arranged his whole funeral for us. Jeff took time to explain all the options to me in a caring way and gave us the time we needed to make our final decisions without pressure and with care. He worked his day around the time we wanted with Charlie before arriving to collect him. I felt totally at ease that Charlie was in the hands of someone who cared about him and Jeff dealt with him with the utmost dignity and respect. I cannot recommended First for Pets highly enough as they made the whole process as easy as it can be at this difficult time in life when you lose your best friend. Thank you so much.
