Terms and Conditions for Cremation Authorisation Form

Cremation Options

Cremation is performed to prepare the remains of the pet for final disposition. It is carried out by placing the pet’s remains into a cremation retort where they are subjected to intense heat and flame. The cremation can be done in one of two ways:

  1. A PRIVATE Cremation is a cremation procedure during which ONLY ONE PET is present in ONE PRIVATE CHAMBER at a time. Allowing us tokeep your pet labeled and private through the entire process, allowing us to have only your pet's cremated remains kept seperate, to be returned to you.


  2. A GROUP / COMMUNAL Cremation is a cremation procedure where multiple pets are cremated together without any form of separation. These commingled cremated remains are not returned to owners.

Cremation Process

During the cremation process, it may be necessary to open the cremation chamber and reposition the remains of the animal in order to facilitate a complete and thorough cremation. Through the use of suitable fuel, the incineration of the container and its contents is accomplished and all substances are consumed or driven off, except bone fragments (calcium compounds) and metal other non-combustible materials, as the temperature is not sufficient to consume them. Due to the nature of the cremation process, any possessions or materials, such as collars or tags that are left with the animal and not removed prior to cremation may be destroyed or if not destroyed, will be returned in the ashes by the Crematory.

The Authorising Agent understands that arrangements must be made to remove any such personal possessions or materials prior to the time that the animal is transported to the Crematory. Following a cooling period, the cremated remains shall be recovered by manual means, such as brushing, and industry-specific mechanical means, such as vacuuming, in order to retrieve the cremated remains from the cremation chamber. Although the Crematory will take reasonable efforts to remove all of the cremated remains from the cremation chamber, some dust and other residue from the process will be left behind.

The Authorising Agent understands and accepts that some incidental commingling is possible under any cremation option. After the cremated remains are removed from the cremation chamber, all non-combustible material (insofar as possible) will be separated and removed from the animal bone fragments by visible or magnetic selection. Other non-bone fragment foreign material recovered with the cremated remains shall be removed prior to processing so that only animal bone fragments will remain. Non-bone fragment and foreign material may be commingled with other like material and shall be disposed of in a dignified manner, and in accordance with all applicable laws.

The Authorising Agent understands and authorises Crematory to dispose of these materials with similar materials from other cremations in a non-recoverable manner, including recycling. When the cremated remains are removed from the cremation chamber, the skeletal remains often will contain recognisable bone fragments. Unless otherwise specified, after the bone fragments have been separated from the other material, they will be mechanically processed, pulverised. The process of crushing or grinding may cause incidental commingling of the remains with the residue from the processing of previously cremated remains. These granulated particles of unidentifiable dimensions, which are virtually unrecognisable as animal remains, will then be placed into a designated container based on the type of cremation identified above (Private, Individual, or Communal).

Final Disposition of Cremated Remains

Following the cremation, the Authorising Agent directs the Crematory and/or Funeral Home to undertake the actions set forth in your booking details to arrange the final disposition of the cremated remains. Cremated remains shall only be released, delivered, mailed or disposed of by the Cemetery or Funeral Home in a dignified manner, in accordance with the law, and with expressed written consent of the Authorising Agent.

If the cremated remains are shipped at any time, the Authorising Agent directs that the Crematory or Funeral Home utilise registered mail with a return receipt or a shipping service that uses an internal system for tracing the location of the cremated remains during shipment and requires a signed receipt of the person taking delivery of the cremated remains.

The Authorising Agent understands that if no arrangements for the final disposition of the cremated remains have been made within sixty (60) days after the cremation or if the Authorising Agent has not taken delivery of or caused the delivery of the cremated remains, or in the event the arrangements of the final disposition have not been carried out within the sixty (60) day period because of the inaction of a party other than the Crematory, Funeral Home, or Veterinarian, then the Crematory, Funeral Home or Veterinarian may dispose of the cremated remains in any dignified manner, including scattering.
