When you lose a cherished pet, how you say goodbye really matters.

"We thank you for your kindness and compassion to us and our beloved cats"

-Peaceways customer

Peaceways pet crematorium, England's first animal crematorium, provides a caring, sensitive and personal service. Set in beautiful surroundings near Lewes in East Sussex, Peaceways is a haven of calm, giving you the time to reflect in the Garden of Remembrance and share memories.

The beauty of Peaceways owes much to its manager, Jeff Tucker, who as well as putting all your arrangements in place, has made the Garden of Remembrance his labour of love.
