The Garden of Remembrance

Meadow Wood - Pet Garden of RemembranceThe Garden of Remembrance is open every day of the year and visitors are most welcome at anytime.

Meadow Wood is the only Garden of Remembrance in Devon where owners, family and friends can visit and enjoy the peaceful setting overlooking a beautiful Devon valley. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It is a special place to find comfort and lasting memories.

The gardens are carefully maintained enabling visitors to walk through a wooded copse and sit in this most tranquil and peaceful place with beautiful views of the countryside and remember your pet and the lifetime of love, pleasure and loyalty it has given you over the years.

We understand how very important this time is and wanting to understand what happens to your beloved pet. We hope here at Meadow Wood we can guide and support you through this difficult and distressing time.
At Meadow Wood all pets collected from veterinary surgeries are cremated at our own private premises about a mile from our Gardens and office.
As members of the Association of Private Pet Cemeteries we abide by a strict code of conduct.
All pets ashes are buried in our Garden of Remembrance, unless owners have requested ashes to be returned to them, and if in years to come owners wish to buy a plaque to remember them by, we can provide a special inscribed plaque or headstone, to place near the ashes.

Situated at the top of the Garden is a special resting place for pets. This is called the Sanctuary.
We are more than happy to receive owners with their pets here at our premises. We can then place your pet in our very peaceful Sanctuary and give you plenty of time to say your goodbyes.

Pets can be buried in our Garden of Remembrance and we encourage owners to visit to choose a plot themselves. We can provide guidance of costing of headstones and plaques with inscriptions if pet owners decide to use this service.
Owners are more than welcome to be present at the burial of their pet should they wish and we are happy to organise a special pet service by request.
For further information please contact us in the office. 

The Sanctuary is a quiet, private place and a time for a final goodbye and where you can spend as much time as you wish. Staff are always on hand to help, guide and support you at this difficult time.
