The best pet crematoriums

In Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire

The reliability of pet crematoriums is important

At QuietusVet we use a single crematorium – PCS in Guisborough.
Locally, we have a few friendly and reliable crematoria.

“How can I be sure the ashes I get back are my pet’s?”

Every 10 years or so, stories appear in the papers detailing some person or other who has been abusing people’s trust and has been disposing of bodies incorrectly. This is very important to my clients and forms the basis of quite a deep ingrained distrust of crematoriums. In truth, these illegal disposals only ever occur with very small and usually un-licensed outfits. These are places that operate underneath the local-council radar.

When I am asked if I can guarantee that the right ashes are returned, I can say yes. I can say this because I've known PCS for 25 years. I have seen the systems they use – the paper trail they use to ensure it’s the right ashes returned to their owner. I’m good at seeing when people have something to hide, and as far as I am concerned, PCS do a brilliant job for my clients.

PCS now also have a memorial garden where some shared (communal) ashes are scattered.

If you want to take your pet to the crematorium – rather than have Quietus Vet do it – then you should consider a private crematorium:

Forget Me Nott ‚Äč(West) Nottingham

My view (2019): Premises are smart and welcoming. They are compassionate and want the absolute best for clients and their pets.

Their office is slightly difficult to find, so make sure they give you good directions.

PCS Guisborough

My view: I use PCS for my client’s cremations. I have never had a problem that wasn’t sorted immediately (e.g. a scratch on a casket / mis-spelled name / etc). I was very pleased to see that they welcome visits from clients and their pets.

One of 3 major crematoriums that cover the whole of the country. Their service is used by many vet practices.

Old Flatts Farm Pet Crematorium

My view: Chris started Old Flatts Farm pet crematorium about the same time I started Quietus Vet and we have been in contact ever since.

It is in Treeton - between Sheffield and Rotherham - just off the M1.

Chris is totally engaged with offering a dignified and genuine service and he continues to do so.

At Rest - Sutton-in-Ashfield

My view: Lorraine really puts herself out to help her clients. She really does care. Which for me is the most important thing.
