Support Services

The following individuals and companies offer a service to pet owners who either face the loss or have lost their companion animal. It is our aim to feature additional suppliers as the Support Services page develops.

Rosehill Pet Cremation Services

Rosehill Pet Cremation Services

Rosehill Pet Cremation Services is a family run business based in Market Drayton that offers a personal and individual cremation service for dogs, cats and small pets. As pet owners ourselves, we know only too well that the loss of a family pet can be one of the unhappiest and most stressful times we face. It is through our own personal experiences and our love of animals, that we opened Rosehill Pet Cremation Services.

Memory Bloom: A Flowering Pet Memorial

Memory Bloom is designed to help mark the passing of a pet by providing a living, flowering memorial and everything needed for holding a simple ceremony. The kits contain a bio degradable pot, a heart shaped container (for ashes/name tag), compost and seeds as well as a special story book and little notes and markers to personalise your own memorial. The activity of putting together the Memory Bloom with your family can help with healing and understanding. The site where the Memory Bloom is placed gives focal point for remembrance as the flowers – a mix of beautiful Anemones, Forget-me-nots, Californian Poppies and insect and bee friendly wildflowers – begin to grow.
