What size urn should I buy for my pet's ashes?
We are often asked “What size urn should I buy for my pet” and are always happy to offer our help in selecting the right size of urn. The urn you choose will depend on a number of factors, not least of which is your own personal preference.

All our product pages display the volume of ashes that each urn will hold.
Is it better to bury or cremate your pet?
The choice of whether to bury or cremate your pet is a very personal one, but there are also a number of practical considerations. Not everyone has a suitable space at home to bury their pets or local regulations may prevent it. Sometimes people worry about burying pets at home and then moving house. If you wish to keep your pet close to you in some way after it has passed on, cremation and having the ashes returned to you can be the answer.
Ultimately, whether to bury or cremate your pet is down to personal choice and practicalities and there is no “right” or “wrong”. Whatever you decide is the right choice for you and your family.
How long does it take to get cremated remains back?
The time taken for ashes to be returned after a cremation can vary. If having the ashes back promptly is important to you we recommend you ask your veterinarian or pet crematory about it when you organise your pet’s cremation.
