A new pet cremation service is being launched next month by Gedling Borough Council
Currently, pet cremations are arranged by local veterinary practices and carried out by private firms. Operating under the name Gedling Pet Cremation Services, the Pet Cremation Team at Gedling Borough Council will provide bespoke arrangements to collect customers pet’s from their home or vet, provide an individual cremation and return the pet’s ashes the following day.
A reflection room will also be available for customers to say their last goodbye in private.
The service will be available from the April 1, providing bespoke cremations for dogs, cats and other small animals, with prices starting from £40.
Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke said: “We’re very pleased to be launching Gedling Pet Cremation Services as this is a great opportunity for Gedling Borough Council to provide a service to our community.
“We understand how distressing the loss of a pet can be and we will ensure a dignified and high quality service, meeting the wishes of pet owners, is provided in what is a difficult time for them”
