Sorry this has taken so long (our precious Border Collie Jess passed away on 6th June) but all I can say to you is do not hesitate in using Tamar Valley Pet Cremation Service - Dawn and the team were so respectful and professional. We rang Dawn at just before 5pm and we took Jess straight there. Dawn returned Jess to us the next day in a lovely wooden box as we requested. I cannot recommend enough. The facilities are pristine. Thank you again Dawn and sorry it took so long to write this review.

Dear Adrian and Carol Thank you so very much for your review. It is always appreciated. I am glad that you found us and we could assist you at such a sad time. Kind Regards Dawn

Professional friendly service

Apologies for the delay in leaving a review but I am still coming to terms with losing both of my dogs in the space of a week. I was and still am completely heartbroken. What has made it easier to deal with is knowing that my dogs are still here in the house with me. I am so very glad my husband chose Tamar Valley pet cremation. Dawn was so very nice that I had no problem in entrusting her with my precious family pets Puzz and Blue. It was hard letting them go but I felt they would be looked after. I wasn't made to feel as if it was just another dog getting cremated. What made it even more special was that we didn't have to wait weeks for them to be returned. We were fortunate to have them returned promptly which was a bit of a daze at the time but now I realise how important that was for us. Now they have pride of place in their wooden boxes with coloured ribbons on them. Thank you Dawn for your caring attitude and making the process easier to deal with. My kindest regards.

Dear Katrina, Thank you so very much for your kind words. I have to say this was one of my hardest weeks. I felt desperately sorry for you all and couldn't believe in a matter of a few days that you had to say goodbye to your two lovely dogs, My heartfelt sympathy goes to you all. With warm wishes Dawn.

Jeanette Taylor reviewed Tamar Valley Pet Cremation Service – 5 star18 September at 09:59 · ..We had to make the difficult decision to say goodbye to our Pointer Chequers last weekend. I knew I wanted to have him individually cremated so looked for a pet cremation service local to me. I'm so pleased I found Tamar Valley as they were amazing from start to finish. Dawn was very compassionate and professional. She collected Chequers from the vets and he was home again within 24 hours.

Margaret Ellis reviewed Tamar Valley Pet Cremation Service – 5 star16 hrs · ..My precious baby girl Mollie died yesterday on 5th September, I rang Dawn and she was so understanding and compassionate, both on the phone and when she turned up to collect her. Dawn called me this afternoon to say she would be bringing Mollie home today. She's now back where she belongs. It seems a bit strange to say that I'm really pleased with the company and their service, but I really am. Everything was handled with dignity, and Mollie was treated as well as if it was their own pet. I'll be recommending them to anyone who needs their service. Thank you so much Dawn x

Lovely service

When our world fell apart after finding our 7 year old boy cat George in the road having been killed in a car accident, we were simply in pieces and just didn't know what to do. After searching online I came across this wonderful service which I cannot rate highly enough. Dawn came and collected our boy the same day and returned him the following, in a beautiful wooden cat sleeping ornament. From the first telephone call until the final drop off, Dawn showed kindness, compassion and understanding of what it feels like to lose a fur baby. I cannot thank her enough for the kindness she showed and for running this beautiful service. It really is such a blessing at a time that is so incredibly painful. Thank you so much. It really did mean the world to us.

Dear Kirsty, I was devastated to hear the sad news that your lovely boy George had been run over. I am so glad that I could help you in your time of need. Thank you so very much for you kind review. Dawn

Careyann KeastRatingReview posted on Sep 6, 2017 My son found my cat nala who we had for 14 years he was laid peacefully in garden and was still warm, I held him For an hour breaking my heart and my son rang my vets at luxstowe vets liskeard and told them what had happened and what he could do, they recommended tamar valley pet creamation services who were absolutely amazing they came within a couple of hours, two lovely ladies attended and were so kind and caring and helpful, they came with a little basket with a blanket and after we chatted they carefully wrapped him up warm in blanket, I followed them to the vehicle and they placed nala in the back of the van in his basket and said he would not be left alone now and they would go back and he would be cremated on his own! I was asked before they left what casket I wanted his ashes back in and I chose the sleeping cat! Payment is due on their arrival but for my cat to be looked after in such a beautiful way was worth every penny and more of the £140 I paid which included pick up, and dropping the ashes off in selected casket! All this was done in less than 24 hours and the casket is beautifully made of wood, he's home with mummy and his family now! I couldn't recommend this service and these people enough, they are not a money gain company they are simply a family run business which I must say I'm truly grateful to you lovely people who looked after me in my grief and made it easier to deal with knowing my boy went like a king! I'm forever grateful to you all for helping me and bringing my boy home! Much love!


More than I could have asked for.

Phoned enquiring and when I phoned the next day she remembered everything and was really sympathetic and supportive throughout. They worked around our schedule and was extremely helpful and clear. The best way to send off my beautiful girl, would recommend to everyone.

Thank you Emily. I am so glad you found our service helpful.

Message              Thank you, so much, for bringing Bobby back so quickly… even though we understood that it couldn’t be guaranteed. We appreciate all of your efforts to have done that and would like to offer an extra Thank you, for that alone.

Bobby was part of our lives for seventeen years (and will be in our hearts forever). When he passed away, we didn’t want him to leave and it was with a feeling of dread and unease, that we began to look for a cremation service. He had never been out without us and he had never been handled by anybody else.

Luckily (it turned out), we came across Tamar Valley pet cremation. The website and reviews confirmed what we needed to hear. We would receive all of Bobby’s remains and only his. There would be minimum, if any, contact with Bobby. These things were important to us. We didn’t know what to expect, as we had never had an animal cremated before. Our email was sent on a Sunday. The next morning, a response was waiting.

Dawn (and whoever else may have been involved) was ready to collect our little boy at the time arranged. We had communicated beforehand, by email and telephone, so had the details sorted out. The communication involved questions, which were answered fully and kindly and so we had some relief.

All that was left was to let him go. Dawn was ready with a basket and blanket, which wasn’t needed but it was good to know that there wouldn’t have been a problem, if we hadn’t had one. Thank you.

Dawn telephoned a few hours later to say that Bobby would be returned by about half past three. We didn’t expect it and were (and still are) so grateful for the act, which reflects the exemplary service that Dawn and her team have created. We were also informed that we had overpaid, due to Bobby’s size. We would have been none the wiser but the honesty elevates the team to a level beyond business.

We already have an urn arriving, so didn’t need one – though it can be arranged. The package, containing Bobby, was a nice surprise. Inside a handled carton, was a bamboo slip bag. Inside this, was cloth bag and, within that, was a polythene package containing Bobby’s ashes. The whole package itself is very calming, due to the materials involved and the perfectly neat and tidy way that Bobby was held, among it all.

As I type this, we are all safe and together again, with untarnished feelings due to the one part that could easily have left a bad taste. Tamar Valley pet cremation offers a service that I cannot recommend highly enough. I will pass my positive experience on to whoever will listen.

Dawn and team… Thank you for everything.

Please feel free to use any of the above as customer feedback.

I apologise for any errors, omissions and anything else left unsaid.

Take Care.

Dear Suzanne

Thank you so much for your very kind words.  They mean so much to us.  We are a small family run company and try to go above and beyond what other companies offer.  We felt so very sorry for your loss of bobby who you had looked after for 17 years and wanted to meet as many of your requirements as we possibly could.

Your kind and lovely review means the world to us.

Many thanks


I wanted to add one more thing.

Yesterday evening, we discovered the wooden heart attached to the carrier. Seeing Bobby’s name written on it was unexpected and moving. A small gesture but one that created feelings of affection. To us, he’s Bobby and it meant he was Bobby before his final physical journey.

Thank You for everything. It means more than you may know.


    Thank you to Dawn and Russell’s personal service taking care of our beautiful loved cat Foggy this week, suddenly taken from us, I couldn’t bare the options presented to us at the vets/pdsa for Foggy after he was put so sleep, so I searched for an alternative and found this one which was such a relief to know that Foggy would be personally collected from home. Russell came and took Foggy as I had laid him out with a posy of flowering shrubs from our garden that he liked to lay under. He was lifted carefully into a basket and Russell said that his is how he would travel and be laid to rest for his cremation, so not disturbed. This made me feel so relieved. Russell stayed with Foggy for the duration and returned the very next day personally with Foggy’s ashes in the lovely wooden sleeping cat, which I then was able to cuddle and lay him on the pillow in the chair where he’d last been, with more of the same flowers. This was lovely for my family and meant that we were able to grieve and have some closure in a short space of time rather than feeling low about the whereabouts of his body and then ashes over a period of a couple weeks. This service seriously made the horrendous shock and loss, so much less painful and reassuring, calm and peaceful

Very sad to post that Peanut our new female bunny passed away this morning but our sister company Tamar Valley Pet Cremation have cremated her for us and Ellie and I will be scattering her ashes on Kit Hill tomorrow.

A very difficult subject to broach, losing a family pet but I wish I had known earlier in the year when we lost Roxy about this local, family run business. Definitely would have made the choice to let Dawn look after Roxy in a kind, caring and sympathetic manner. Life is full of choices…..when we know what our options are. Makes sense to me xx Tamar Valley Pet Cremation

we aim to offer a better service...
Same day collection with a return between 24/48 hours.
