Penwith Pets Crematorium, Pet & Horse Cemetery

We have created a unique resource at Rose Farm in west Cornwall for those who wish an alternative choice. The location is a peaceful final resting place for both pets and people in a tranquil corner of west Cornwall; it is one of outstanding natural beauty, with a long history of human settlement dating back at least to Iron Age times, and a strong spiritual and healing resonance.

In 1988 we established a pet cemetery and pet crematorium, for dogs, cats and small animals; more recently they have opened a horse cemetery; and latest of all a woodland burial or natural burial ground for people, for DIY funeral or more traditional ceremonies.

In establishing all these facilities we have striven to provide a caring and decent service to those who seek control and certainty over the final resting place of themselves or their companion animals. We are committed animal lovers themselves, and when our time comes we too will be buried on the site.
We are also members of the following associations, both of which have strict codes of practice:

The Association of Private Pet Cemeteries and Crematoria

The Association for Nature Reserve Burial Grounds

When the sun sets on a life, be it human or animal, you do have a choice on what happens to the mortal remains; make yours now and enjoy peace of mind. Choose where and how you would like to be laid to rest, in a woodland burial, or choose a fitting end for a faithful pet in the pet cemetery. You and your loved ones will be treated with dignity, respect and sympathy.

Please see on the accompanying pages details of the services on offer at Rose Farm, and feel free to contact us for further information, or just call for an informal chat on 01736 731310.

We are happy to help you through what can be difficult and distressing times with advice, sympathy and tact.
