Today, not only pet burial services but pet cremation services with various options are available at the beautiful fifteen acre site that has become Rossendale Pet Crematorium and Memorial Gardens.
Rossendale Pet Crematorium
One day in 1967, a farmer on the hillside above Crawshawbooth lost his dog in a tragic accident. Grief stricken, he buried his companion and erected a headstone to mark the grave. That stone, which may still be seen and read, was soon to be joined by markers for many other pets, for the dog now lies amidst a whole community of much loved animals.
If it should be
If it should be I grow frail and weak,
And pain should wake me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle can’t be won.
You will be sad, I understand,
Don’t let your grief then stay your hand,
For this day more than all the rest
Your love and friendship stand the test.
We’ve had so many happy years,
What is to come will hold no fears,
You’ll not want me to suffer, so,
When the time comes, please let me go,
I know in time you too will see,
It is kindness you do to me,
Although my tail it’s last has waved,
From pain and suffering I’ve been saved,
Do not grieve that it should be you,
Who has to decide this thing to do,
We’ve been so close, we two, these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
