About the CPC Cambridge crematorium

Opened in 1979 the Cambridge Pet Crematorium started offering pet owners a with dignified and compassionate pet cremation service.

We went to our boy’s cremation as a family and were treated with the utmost dignity. My boy was laid out so lovingly for us, we spent some precious moments with him, never rush all in our own time. This was the first cremation we’d attended so didn’t know what to expect but was explained everything with great courtesy. Can’t rate the service highly enough. Certainly done our boy proud, he is now at home with us forever.

We as a family would like to thank all at CPC for such devotion and care for all those loved pets at such an awful time for those who lose such precious loved ones.
