Sunnyside Pet Cremation Price Information

Please read this page carefully if you are considering using our services, as it contains important information. 

Please note cheques and credit cards are not accepted.

We try to keep our pricing structure as simple as possible based on animal weight.  Any other items you wish to be cremated with your pet such as toys, blankets will count towards weight. We cannot cremate external metal items such as chains or collars. Please note that we try to avoid cremating padded baskets as they create a high volume of dust and can make our working environment hazardous.

It would help very much if you know the weight of your pet. If you are unsure of you pet's weight we are happy to estimate and adjust charges once ashes are collected.

Our cremation price includes individual cremation and availability of entire ashes in a scatter tube the next working day. We have a selection of alternative caskets on display in our meeting room which are available to purchase if you prefer.

Rodents and Reptiles under 2kg  - £80

On a trial basis we are offering a discounted basic cremation service with no ashes returned. This service will be available during the mornings and weekday early afternoons only for pets brought to us, and will not be available when we have holiday cover. Please telephone for more information.


Out of Hours Surcharges:
£25 applies 5-6pm weekdays and noon-2pm on Saturdays. 
£50 applies Bank Holidays and Sundays, weekdays after 6pm and Saturdays after 2pm. If an appointment after noon on Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Years Day are agreed then additional charges will apply.

Witnessed Cremations: By prior arrangement it is occasionally possible to witness the start of your pet's cremation. As an accompanied cremation prevents us from accepting any other pets prior to your appointment it is important that your pet comes to us as early as possible during the morning and it necessary to charge extra for this service. Visitors in our Cremation Room will be accompanied by a member of staff at all times. Once the cremator is running we will then all leave the cremation room and an appointment will be made for you to collect your ashes the next working day. 

Same day ashes collection can be available depending upon the size and time of arrival of your pet and will incur out of hours charges.

Additional Documentation: Some pet insurance policies will contribute towards the cost of cremation. The documentation we provide you with should be sufficient to help you with your claim. If your insurance company require us to complete additional paperwork or you require copies of lost documentation, this will incur additional charges. 

Collection Costs

Our collection service is charged at £10 for addresses up to 5 miles from our facility. Collection from addresses beyond this area is charged at an additional £2 per mile. 

Please note that collections from Derby City (areas inside the outer ring road) are charged at £50. 

Collections can be made from the Burton, Swadlincote, Derby, Ashby and Coalville areas, roughly within 30 minutes of our facility. Where collection is required from outside of this area additional charges may apply.

Payment Terms

We respectfully ask that all payment is made in full when you bringing your pet to us, when we collect your pet if from your home, or before we collect your pet if from your Vet. These terms also apply for those arranging or bringing pets on behalf of friends or family. As a small family business we are unable to extend credit terms.

Payment may be made in person or by telephone by Debit Card or in Cash. Credit Card payments and cheques are not accepted. 

Our liability is limited to the cost of the value of the individual product or service.
