How Much Do Pet Urns Cost?
How Much Do Pet Urns Cost? Well the easy answer is that depends. You can spend as much or as little as you like. You can even make your own. The amount of money you spend on the urn for your pet does NOT equal how much you love them. The most important thing to consider is will it do the job I need it to do?
What do I want to do with my pet’s ashes?
Before you choose a pet urn it is a good idea to think about what do you need it to do? Do you want to keep your pet’s ashes at home forever? Perhaps you want to keep them in your garden? Or do you want to keep some at home and scatter the rest at a special location? Have you thought about creating a piece of jewellery or some glassware? Are you going to bury their ashes at the pet crematorium? Do you want your pet’s ashes buried with yours when the time comes?
Cost of Pet Urns
Because different pet urns do different jobs and some do them better than others. If you want to scatter your pet’s ashes then a scatter tube is designed to do this with dignity. They are made of cardboard and hold your pet’s ashes securely inside until you are ready to scatter them. There are lots of beautiful designs to choose from, rainbow paws, autumn forest scenes, suns setting on the ocean. They start at a very reasonable price of £12.50, you can see our range here.
Burying the ashes in the garden? A life from a life is such a wonderful way to celebrate your pet. Planting a tree or bush in memory of your pet is a great idea. Our Living Memorial is specially formulated mixture that breaks down pet ashes to create a nutrient-rich environment for your tree, plant or shrub to thrive and costs £85. There is an urn that you bury in the ground that has a handy plaque so that you know where it is. It’s called the Rosemoor pet urn and you can find it here. This is a good urn because many people bury their pet’s ashes in their garden and then find it very stressful if they have to move house.
But you don’t have to bury their ashes in your garden. We had so many calls from distressed pet owners about having to leave their pet’s ashes in the garden when they moved that we decided to find a solution. So we worked with a range of different sculptors and stonemasons to create garden urns that can move with you. From contemporary stainless steel Petals to traditional stone sundials. Every one of our garden memorial urns can come with you if you ever nee to move house.

Some people are very comfortable about keeping their pet’s ashes in an urn that looks like an urn. And why not, keeping your pet’s ashes at home is a good thing, there is no need to hide it. Our Sleeping Cat Urn is incredibly popular. But I prefer to choose whether I tell someone where I keep April’s ashes. We are incredibly lucky to know and work with some of the country’s finest ceramicists. Together we have created pet urns for your home that are totally discreet, incredibly beautiful and each one is as unique as your pet. For example Alison West makes our Saggar-fired urns and Chris Hawkins makes our raku pet urns. I have the most gorgeous Saggar-fired urn that has the remains of April’s ashes. She sits beautifully on the windowsill at home looking out at our garden, just where she always loved to do.
Pet Keepsake urns
Most people choose a combination of options. They scatter some of the ashes and then keep the rest at home. In this case the keepsake pet urn is the ideal and very cost-effective solution. You could have a brass heart with paws or a discreet cloisonne candleholder. Both cost £65 and will hold a small amount of ashes securely.
By keeping a small amount of your pet’s ashes in a keepsake urn you will always have the option to create memorial jewellery or glassware. This is where a small amount of your pet’s ashes – about a teaspoon – can be infused into a ring, bracelet, pendant or ornament. And prices range dramatically, from stainless steel keyrings to 1ct diamonds. You really can spend whatever you want. Our prices for memorial glass start at £95 for a glass heart and jewellery is £75 for a Treasure Chest Charm. But we also work with talented jewellers to create bespoke items and we can also create blue diamonds that are made in Switzerland.
