Readers have been sharing their experiences of a well-known pet crematorium.

The pet crematorium, Pets at Peace, opened in Whitehaven in July and serves pet owners throughout Cumbria.

More than 50 cremations have taken place to date and the personal service has left customers very impressed, with the business getting very good reviews.

Here's what you, the readers, had to say.

Lesley Anne Sloan said: "Jeanne and Steve are incredible and looked after our Stella as if she was their own dog."

Michael Morgan had also had a positive experience of the crematorium, adding: "We lost our lovely labrador Paddy on Thursday and took him to Jeanne and Steve.

"We received a warm, caring welcome in lovely peaceful surroundings.

"They listened to us and treated us with nothing but kindness. More importantly they treated Paddy with great respect. Lovely people, calming surroundings, wonderful service."

Jeanne Park, and her partner, Stephen run the independent crematorium.

"We offer a very personal dignified service with guaranteed individual cremations. We tailor our service to pet owner’s individual needs and personal requests," said Jeanne.

"We offer a collection service from owner’s homes, or vet’s practices. We collect pets at any time as we know not all pets die between 9am and 5pm. Pet owners can also bring their pets themselves to the crematorium if desired.

"Pets will be always treated with dignity and care and are transported and handled the way we would handle our own pets, with the utmost love and respect.

"We only ever transport one pet at any one time and we will never put pets in plastic bags – they are carefully placed in a comfortable pet bed."

The crematorium is DEFRA approved, with all the necessary licences/permissions and has zero smoke and odour emissions.
