Pet Memorial Service


The reason I offer memorial services for pets is because I know…

I know what it’s like to lose a pet. I know they are an integral part of your family. I have experienced, several times, the overwhelming grief that the loss of a beloved pet brings.

I care about what happens at the end of your pet’s life, therefore, I provide a dignified ceremony that allows you to give your pet the send-off they deserve. It’s a time to celebrate the life of the pet you loved so much and who will be so very much missed.

The memorial service will remember and honour the life of your beloved pet, providing some comfort at a distressing time. I’m based in the Scarborough/Whitby area. I will discover what made your pet unique, then plan and conduct a sensitive ceremony.

The ceremony can be anything you want it to be and can if you wish, include tributes, poems, readings, candles, photos, videos, and music.

The ceremony will be tailored to reflect the unique bond between you and your pet. It’s a meaningful way to say goodbye and cherish their memory. It can be beneficial to all members of the family who may be struggling to cope with the loss. Included is, if wished, a visual digital tribute which is yours to keep and treasure.

This service is for any pet e.g. dog, cat, bird, horse, reptile, or any other pet that means the world to you. If you have questions, just ask! I’m here to support you.

What might a pet memorial ceremony consist of?


The specific content and format of your pet memorial service is up to you. I will guide and support you to decide what works for you.

Venue: The memorial service can be held in a variety of locations, such as your home or garden, a pet cemetery, a park, a beach, or wood.

Tributes: Perhaps you would like to share stories and memories, highlight their unique qualities, funny moments, and the joy they brought.

Music: Soft and calming music can help create a peaceful atmosphere during the ceremony.

Readings and poems: Specially selected readings or poems can reflect the bond between humans and pets and offer comfort and solace in times of grief. I can suggest something suitable.

Symbolic gesture: A symbolic gesture, such as lighting a candle or observing a moment of silence, can be performed to honour their life.

Include others or keep it private: Choose to invite family and friends, with or without their pets, or have a more intimate and private service.

Lasting memorial: As a lasting memorial, you could choose to do something special such as plant a tree or put up a memorial plaque.

Video or photos: I can create a visual digital tribute to use during the service, which could showcase their life, adventures, and cherished moments. There’s no extra charge and this keepsake is yours to treasure.
