Our Mission

After a negative experience with a pet cremation service, I was left holding an urn containing ashes I could only trust were those of my beloved cat, Oakley-Bean. With my sense of peace shattered, I wanted to provide pet owners with the peace of mind and comfort that had been taken away from me, with a guarantee that you will receive all and only your pets ashes.


I established Angel Ashes in 2008 offering pet cremations and memorial products to help you honour the life of your pet.

Our Values

I have been an animal lover all my life – a strict vegetarian and then vegan from the age of 15 – and I always wanted to do something that would help animals. Now, not only do I get to do this every day, but I also get to help their people, too. 
I service the Adelaide community 7 days with a highly personal service that is specific to Angel Ashes. Every pet is treated as if it were my own and I am available directly to you for questions or just an understanding shoulder.
Jason came to Angel Ashes in 2010. Also a passionate animal lover and vegan, he has become the backbone of the company and helped it to grow and expand, increasing the amount of people who can benefit from being able to say goodbye to their pet in such a loving way. He spends most days as a stay-at-home-dad and working for Angel Ashes behind the scenes while I visit clients.

About Angel Ashes

Since 2008, we’ve helped hundreds of families just like yours take care of their pet’s final journey with a loving and trusted individual cremation service, allowing them to remain close, through a dedicated urn or a memorial item. We only range products that we would buy for our pets, so you know you are getting the best quality available.

Angel Ashes was founded to ensure your pet receives the best care. We are a local Adelaidian husband and wife team and live in and work out of Sheidow Park. We are on call 7 days a week for all the support you need.

Angel Ashes Pet cremations and memorials offer a personal and supportive service that only a small family business can provide. Your pet will be collected from your home or vet and after an individual cremation, the ashes returned to you along with a memorial package to help you say goodbye with love.

With every pet we cremate, we always have our Oakley-Bean in the back of our minds, and therefore treat your family member as if they were our own. We’re long-time vegans and take great pride in being able to dignify the bond between animals and people with Angel Ashes.

After all these years, we still get affected by the pets we see every day, yet helping the owner’s grieve and offering them a support system (something we never had) allows us to continue such highly emotional work every day.

If you want to honour your pet with the personal and caring service they deserve, Book Online, SMS or Call 1300 914 919 and ask for your Senior’s card discount.
