Our Origin: Inspired by Oakley-Bean
In 2008, a deeply personal loss profoundly changed my life. My beloved cat, Oakley-Bean, passed away, and through this heart-wrenching experience, I found myself navigating the challenging process of pet cremation. However, the service I encountered lacked the depth of care and respect I had hoped for. This experience became a turning point, sparking a desire within me to provide a more compassionate and meaningful service for others facing the loss of their pets.
Angel Ashes was born from my grief and longing to preserve cherished memories. I envisioned a service where pets' final journeys are handled with grace, dignity, and genuine care, far removed from the impersonal nature of standard services. Creating a space that recognised the unique bond between pets and their owners was crucial and celebrated.
The legacy of Oakley-Bean transcended his passing. His memory laid the foundation for Angel Ashes, guiding our mission to offer the empathy, respect, and attentive care that every pet and owner deserves in those tender moments. His spirit lives on in every compassionate service we provide, turning a personal story of loss into a mission of care.
I invite you to watch the video below, where I, Mel, share my journey of losing Oakley-Bean and how it led to the creation of Angel Ashes. Hear firsthand what Angel Ashes means to me and how it's shaped by a heartfelt mission to provide compassionate care for your beloved pets.
The grief and longing to hold onto memories sparked the idea of Angel Ashes. I envisioned a place where the final journey of beloved pets was marked with grace, dignity, and utmost care. Rather than a cold, transactional service, I wanted to provide a haven where the profound bond between pets and their owners was acknowledged and celebrated.
Oakley-Bean's passing was not just an end but a new beginning. His memory became the cornerstone of Angel Ashes, inspiring our mission to ensure every pet and their owner receives the care, respect, and understanding they deserve in those delicate moments.
For your convenience, all these payment methods — Credit Cards, PayPal, ZipPay, AfterPay, Humm, ShopPay, and VetPay — are available when you book online. We aim to make your online booking experience smooth and hassle-free.
Well, it's similar to human cremation but on a smaller scale. Your pet is placed in a cremation chamber, and through heat and evaporation, they're gently returned to their essential elements, commonly known as ashes.
That's a concern many share. At places like ours, we use a tracking system and keep only one pet in the chamber during individual cremations, ensuring you receive only your beloved pet's ashes.
Absolutely. Some families find comfort in being there for a final goodbye. If that interests you, you can make arrangements to upgrade to Witness Option with our Private Service.
While the actual cremation often takes just a few hours, the entire process, from start to finish, can range between 1 to 15 days. This duration primarily depends on the specific services you select and the queue of pets scheduled before yours.
Regardless of the timeframe, we at Angel Ashes are committed to handling every step with the utmost care, ensuring you receive your pet's ashes promptly and with the reverence they deserve.
From beautiful urns to hand-made pet paw prints and keepsake jewellery, we've got a range of items to help keep your pet's memory alive. Just let us know what you have in mind.

The cost of our services can fluctuate based on several factors: the specific service you opt for, the size of your pet, and any additional memorial items you desire.

If you have any questions or need further clarification on pricing, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to guide you through the best options with your preferences and budget.
You don't have to do much. If you have a special blanket or toy, you'd like to send along. We'll handle everything else with care and respect.
Of course! Many find solace in adding a special note or trinket alongside their pet. However, due to the nature of the cremation process, some items are restricted. It's always a good idea to check with us first, ensuring we can safely and respectfully integrate your chosen memento.
