Individual | Private Viewing | Communal
If you would like the ashes of your pet returned to you, you will be offered an individual cremation. Your pet will be cremated in isolation. The ashes will be prepared and returned to you in your choice of our hand-selected urns. This option gives you the opportunity to keep the ashes at home. Alternatively, you may wish to scatter them in your pet’s favorite place. You can rest assured knowing that your pet will be handled with the utmost care and attention. Multiple checks are in place throughout every single cremation, to ensure your pet is taken care of exactly to your wishes.
You may wish to attend your pet’s individual cremation. This will provide you with the opportunity to say a final farewell. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you wish to organize a private viewing. We will explain the service to you and be on hand throughout the process to provide you with the comfort and support you may need.
Please note that GSPC charges a small premium if you would like to attend your pet’s individual cremation.
During communal cremations, your pet will be cremated alongside others in the same chamber, without any form of separation. Your pet’s ashes will not be returned to you following communal cremation. However, the cremains are reverentially scattered across the beautiful San Joaquin Valley in California.
You can bring your deceased pet directly to us or we can offer a collection service for a small fee depending on your location. Feel free to contact us to organize a drop-off or collection time.
