Price transparency is important for us! We know it is not always easy to compare pet cremation services to prevent being caught by a surprise invoice in the end. Therefore, we provide an overview of the costs of cremation, additional services and optional offers for you.
Cost of the cremation
|Total weight*||Communal Cremation||Individual Cremation|
|up to 1.0 kg||70.00 €||100.00 €|
|1.1 kg – 5,0 kg||95.00 €||185.00 €|
|5.1 kg – 10.0 kg||115.00 €||215.00 €|
|10.1 kg – 20.0 kg||135.00 €||245.00 €|
|20.1 kg – 30.0 kg||160.00 €||265.00 €|
|30.1 kg – 40.0 kg||180.00 €||290.00 €|

*the total weight will be calculated from the weight of your pet, the compulsory cremation bag and optional grave goods, like the favourite blanket or toy of your pet. The weighing in the pet crematory is decisive.
Included in the cremation costs is a certificate of cremation. The price of the individual cremation includes the return of the ashes and the personal handing back to you at our office. If you choose the communal cremation, your pet’s ashes will not be returned to you, but be scattered in a meadow of a large forest property.
