Established 18years ago, Abbyfield Equine Crematorium is a Nationwide Service specialising in individual equine cremation services. We cover all of England, Wales and Scotland, no distance is too great to travel and we are on hand when ever you need us. We are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will usually be ready to travel to your premises within minutes of speaking to you to enable us to make a collection within the day. There are many customers and veterinary groups who will be happy to highly recommend us.
Any animal, especially one as special as a horse or pony becomes part of your family, sometimes for many years and that it is therefore very important for you to be able to give them a dignified and honourable send off.
We try to make the process as easy as possible for you and the horse and treat each animal as an individual with care an dignity. With the sort of service we provide, reliability and efficiency are essential, and we do our very best to arrive at your premises as soon as possible so as not to make things any harder for you. We work quickly, precisely, taking great care of your horse or pony.
Your horse or pony will be carefully loaded into our covered horse box, your horse will not share the box with any other animal and will not be ‘on show’ for the journey. Once loaded, we return to our crematorium where the process is carried out. Each animal is cremated as an individual so you know the ashes we return to you are of your pet only. Within 2 weeks, your companion’s ashes are sent back to you in an oak casket, together with mane hair (conditioned and plaited) and the shoes (polished and varnished). All items are sent by courier to your chosen address.
Loosing a horse who may have been with you for many years is something no horse owner wants to think about. We are never ready to say goodbye to our old friends. However, unpleasant as the prospect is, having a plan and knowing what to expect can save both you and your horse unnecessary suffering. Abbyfield can guide you through this difficult time offering the best solution for both you and your horse. If you have a horse nearing the end of its life and wish to discuss the process, or if you just want to plan ahead and know when to expect, please feel free to call us and discuss.
The proprietor of the company, Rob, a pet owner himself grew up living on a farm and has been around animals all of his life. Rob carries out all of the work personally in a professional manner and will ensure an honourable send off for your loved one.
