Meg dog

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Tamar Valley pet cremation for helping our old girl Meg on her journey. It has been the most difficult time losing Meggie after 16 years together, but taking her to be cremated at Tamar Valley and being able to collect her ashes the next day has really helped ease our grief. In her life I really never liked leaving her to be looked after by anyone else as I would worry about her too much, so naturally it was very important to me to find a crematorium that felt 100% right. Tamar Valley was exactly that, Luke was kind and calm, and knowing that he looks after the dogs in the kennels too was a real comfort. We felt at peace leaving Meg with him as we knew she would be cared for and treated with dignity. We collected her ashes the next day which were beautifully wrapped up and placed in a bag with a wooden heart tag that had her name on it. Thank you so much.

So sorry for your loss, but thank you for trusting us with Meggie, i will pass your kind words onto Luke. Kind regards Dawn

Thank you

We recently lost our beloved Scooby after 14 years of pure joy. The love he gave and received are immeasurable and the memories will last forever. Dawn, Emma and the team were a big part off Scooby's life, spending his holidays in the kennels at Kit Hill. How perfect that he received the same love and care to the end. Scooby is now home with us forever. We cannot thank you enough for your care and dedication x

Oh Alan, Scooby was such a beautiful dog inside and out. It was our pleasure to care for him at his rainbow crossing. Thank you for entrusting us to care for Scooby. once again many condolenses Kind regards Dawn and the team. x

I cannot describe the deep pain I feel at the loss of my Cavalier Sam, but the gentle care and understanding I received from Dawn and Emma at Tamar Valley helped lessen the catastrophic blow of his passing. Their attentiveness, sympathy and patience were exemplary. They treated Sam and me with love and tender care far, far beyond what one could expect.


Oh John, Thank you so very much for taking the time to review our small business. Please take time to Grieve Sam we know his loss is immense for you. With kindest regards Dawn

Perfect cremation

We lost our cat suddenly to kidney failure so was all a shock but they were so compassionate and the lovely younger man made it all easier. I was so happy it was a rural place and we walked to the barn with my cat with a man in wellies. It made it all natural and my cat loved the rural farm life and being outdoors so I know she would agree this was perfect location. He took her into the warm as a cold day that was very kind and we received her ashes back separated into three bags which I’d asked for , tied in rustic twine in a paper bag with a wooden heart. All perfect and felt very rustic and natural. Can’t thank you enough for being so compassionate to my cat missy.

Olivia so very sorry for you loss, but glad you found us. I will pass on your message to Luke. Kind regards Dawn

Thank you

Just wanted to thank you for your care & attention. Following the loss of out Jrt Essa aged 15.7 years. It has been an emotional time for us. But was made easier by the speedy service. Having her ashes back at home with us so quickly. Made it a little easier to bare. The attached note was very thoughtful and appreciated.

Once again so sorry for your loss but thank you for using us. Kind regards Dawn

A big thank you to Emma & Luke for their kindness at a very difficult time.

Luke was outstanding in his compassion and understanding in the process and has given us some peace in our decision, which we are still coming to terms with.

The whole process was handled with dignity which is what Brandy, our cat, deserved.

Thank you all

Thank you so very much for your kind review and I will pass your comments onto Luke and Emma, Kind regards Dawn

Saying goodbye to Angel

What can I say, except Thank you !!! From the bottom of our broken hearts.

You are such a sincere and caring family, who took care of our precious Angel as if she was your own.

Down to simply knowing her name as we arrived, which made a huge impact on us, to the final precious touches of a card ( hand signed by all the staff involved) a certificate, a heart token with her name on it.

You were patient and respectful in our time of grief, which I truly appreciate, as I couldn't speak, or in a coherent manner.

I honestly cannot thank you or recommend you enough to anyone wishing to use such a beautiful service.

Special mention to Luke.... For a young man to have such compassion and patience, thank you !!! You are very special ! And although it can't be the easiest job in the world, your kindness and thoughtfulness meant so much to us ❤️

Thank you so very much Tracy. We are all so very sorry for your loss. We know how much our fur babies mean to each and everyone of us. i will pass your thanks onto Luke, he is special. Kind regards Dawn

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
