Different dog breed classification for cremation

Although the different crematoria do vary we would like to thank Paws to Rest Crematorium in Carlisle who have a really helpful classification of breed sizes in their literature which I have used with a few small tweaks to help you understand the difference in pet cremation prices that are used. This will also help when choosing the correct size urn or casket for your pets ashes.
