  • Pet Memorials

    Today, many people like to commemorate the passing of a beloved pet by honouring them with a memorial. Pet Memorials first became fashionable in the Victorian era with pet funerals. However, they were regarded as irreligious so pet cemetries were then established such as the one in Hyde Park in 1881. Many of the large Victorian estates had pet cemetries and today, The Queen has graveyards at Balmoral and Sandringham for her beloved corgis.
