Keeping the ashes
Many people keep their beloved 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 garden.
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 with the loss of your beloved petand only you will know when and if the time is right to do something else with the ashes.
We are a nation of gardeners and lots of people would love to place their beloved pet’s ashes in the garden that they loved, nurtured and enjoyed. The main downside to burying the ashes in the garden is having to move house. If you ever have to sell your house you will have to find and dig the ashes up or leave them behind. This can be stressful for all involved. But if you keep them inside an ornament in the garden you get the best of both worlds. If you do ever need to move home you can simply take them with you.
The other benefit of a memorial garden ornament is that it is completely discreet. This will give you more time to decide what you want to do as your feelings may change over time. Until then these urns can keep the ashes safely at home without you having to explain your reasons to anyone, if someone admires the keepsake it is up to you whether you tell them or not.
If required we will supply a correctly sized urn free of charge.
