Frequently Asked Questions
At Torridge pet cremation an individual cremation means that your pet will be handled and cremated on its own handled with dignity and care thorugh out the process. We do not cremate several pets at the same time and we do not communally cremate pets and then separate ashes out afterwards. If you do not choose our service I would recommend that you find out what does happen at the crematorium you intend to use.
