Keeping your pet’s ashes
Many people keep their pet’s ashes at home, some because they are not sure what to do with them, some because they are not yet ready to do something with them and some simply want to keep them close by, in the house. Sometimes, very well meaning, friends will give advice such as ‘it’s time to move on’ or ‘you’ll feel better if you scatter/bury them’. But only you will know how you feel about the loss and only you will know when and if the time is right to do something else with the ashes.
Splitting your pet’s ashes
It is worthwhile thinking about keeping some of your pet’s ashes. You can scatter or bury most of the ashes on a favourite walk perhaps, or in the garden. But if you keep a small amount back you can memorialise when you are ready. This will give you more time to decide what you want to do as your feelings may change over time.
As soon as you buy an ashes into glass ornament we will send you a pack with everything you need to send a small amount – a teaspoon of ashes per item – securely to our glassmaker.
The glass maker keeps the ashes securely in a safe until they are individually handmade into your glass memorial. Once cooled the robin is sent securely to you with the certificate of authenticity.
The process takes between 6 to 10 weeks from receipt of ashes.
