About Us

Prestwood Pet Crematorium was setup by Derek and Susie Lawrence back in 1996. While sitting in the waiting room of the dentists Derek read an article in a national newspaper about someone who had been prosecuted for dumping the bodies of deceased pets in landfill sites. This person was claiming to operate a pet crematorium.

As pet owners all their lives they were horrified that this could happen and decided to setup their own pet crematorium. The idea was a simple one, to offer pet owners the opportunity to give their beloved faithful companions the respectful send-off they deserve. At Prestwood Pet Crematorium a totally individual cremation is guaranteed when that is what you have asked for and all pets are treated with the utmost respect and dignity for the entire time they are entrusted to us.

We have a memorial garden where you can place stones and markers if you wish or simply sit in the tranquil surroundings and take a moment to remember a beloved pet.

We have a completely open door policy and welcome visits at any time. We are happy to show people around all parts of the crematorium and owners whose pets are entrusted to us for an individual cremation are more than welcome to view any or all stages of the process if they wish. If you wish to view particular stages of your pets cremation then please let us know in advance so that we can arrange this for you.
