Who are we!!

We are a pet crematorium based in Winchcombe; passionate about both pets and people.
We do things a little differently, taking a very modern and environmentally friendly approach, creating living memories encased within beautiful house plants.

We would love the opportunity to support you during such a difficult time.

We started this business through a passion for people. Every pet has an owner and in many cases, far more than one!
We are the ones left behind to pick up the pieces of our broken heart.

Our pets are as individual as snowflakes and each one has its own story to tell. Atypical Pet Crematorium has a vision to change the industry, meeting the needs of the modern world we live in and put you the owner at the heart of this.

What are we about

Firstly, it is possible you are viewing this page during a time of loss and may we extend our empathy to you and thank you for considering Atypical Pet Crematorium. Should this not be the case and you are viewing out of curiosity or wanting to be part of the community we are building; welcome. The below tells you a little bit about us, but we would love to talk to you directly via one of the many ways we offer. If you are kind enough to register with us, we will plant a tree for you. Find out more about our passion for trees and the other things we do to tackle climate change in the ‘The Eco Bit!’ tab.

We exist through the desire to provide a service that goes beyond the obvious and focusses on what really matters; YOU. We feel that labouring the facts around individual cremation, receiving only your pets ashes in return and treating your pet with the highest level of dignity adds little value, given we operate our business with a morale compass that wouldn’t allow anything else. 

Our founder has worked within the industry and managed a crematorium that catered for many hundreds of veterinary practices; he knows first hand, both what matters to you and what he believes to be the appropriate level of care for your beloved pets.

At Atypical Pet Crematorium, we want to challenge the status quo, give something back and ensure that you are able to move forward with lasting memories of your pet. 

Our pets are as unique as us and as such, no one way suits all. We are here to meet your needs, whatever they may be.

It goes without saying that those of us who love animals, will have a number of pets in our lifetime, each and every one bringing something brilliant to our lives and each as important as the other. It is our role to ensure that when the time comes to say goodbye, we provide the comfort and service fitting of the time spent with your pet. In an industry that has seen little to no change in the last 40 years; we aspire to be that change, providing you the customer with a service and product aligned with the world we live in today. 

We want to tear up the rule book and bring the industry into the 21st century; we as human beings have moved forward and our pets have been with us every step of the way. We do not use the usual caskets and urns seen within the industry and aim to offset our carbon footprint wherever possible (see giving back)

Atypical meaning translates to being different from all others of the same type. We can and will change the face of the pet cremation industry; celebrating the life of our pets and providing unique ways to remember our pets for years to come.

When you can be anything; be both kind and Atypical.
