Personalised Pet Memorials At Remembered Forever


For many people, the death of a pet is one of life’s biggest challenges. The sudden loss of such a close companion can trigger all sorts of emotions and create a huge hole that can never be filled. Are you someone dealing with the departure of your faithful friend? Perhaps you’re offering support to someone who is? Personalised pet memorials from Remember Forever can help soften the blow and are the perfect gift to keep the memory of a pet alive for many years to come. 

Why are pet memorials so important? 

Pet memorials, whether they come in the form of memorial plaques, pet urns, grave markers, picture frames or pet memorial stones, can offer some much-needed solace in a time of need. As physical items, they can be placed anywhere around the home and provide a tangible location for pet owners to sit and remember their fallen friends. 

Crucially, while keepsakes may not be able to bring a pet back, the role they play in the grieving process is vital. That’s why so many people find comfort in memorial frames and personalised pet mementoes, just like the ones we offer at Remembered Forever.

Within our collection of bereavement gifts, you’ll find a wide range of touching tributes to your beloved pet. So whether you’ve lost a pet dog, cat, duck, rabbit or hamster, we guarantee that we have something to help you honour their memory.

The Death Of A Pet: How To Break The News To Your Children


When a pet dies, it is normal to experience grief and sadness. But for those of us with children, the loss of an animal who is considered part of the family can present several unenviable challenges. How do you explain what has happened? Should you hold some information back? What can you do to make everything better? 

At Remembered Forever, we specialise in helping people come to terms with the loss of their loved ones and know just how remarkable a family pet can be. 

In the blog below, we explore the best ways to break the news of your pet’s passing to your children. 

Why Are Our Pets So Important? 

For many of us, owning a pet is extremely rewarding. They are around to witness our successes and triumphs, and can even offer comfort and support when life gets tough. At times, the presence of a pet is enough in itself to inspire feelings of happiness and contentment. They truly are that special. 

Discover how to tell your children about pet loss

In the case of children, it’s fair to say that some consider their pets to be their very best friends. These creatures provide youngsters with entertainment, companionship and support from a very early age, greeting them when they come home from school, offering them a shoulder to cry on and accompanying them on many a memorable outing. 

It’s for all of these reasons that dealing with pet loss is so difficult. 

How To Tell Your Children 

So here’s the hard part. 

Although it will be one of the most difficult things you’ll ever do as a parent, it makes sense to prepare for the day when you have to deliver the news of your pet’s death to your children. 

Here is some advice to guide you both through the process. 

  • Be truthful: The first thing you should do is tell your children the truth about what has happened. How you do this will vary in accordance with their emotional maturity and understanding of death, but the sentiment remains the same. 

Avoid obscuring the truth by using phrases such as “Max has gone on holiday” and instead, help your children get to grips with the idea of death by gently reminding them that dying, and thus not being around anymore, is a normal part of life. This may seem harsh, but lying to your children will make them less likely to trust you (or anybody else) in the future. 

If your children are too young to understand death as a concept, don’t worry. It’ll be useful here to tie your explanation of death to any spiritual or religious beliefs you may have in order to make things easier to understand. 

  • Explain that all feelings are valid: For most children, the death of a pet will be the first time they experience loss. And although unpleasant, this will help them to understand and deal with grief better as they get older. 

At this point, it is important to explain to them that it is completely normal to feel a whole range of emotions when someone dies, from sadness right through to anger. Share in their grief by being open with them about how you feel. If they see that you’re upset, they may find some comfort in the fact that they aren’t alone. 

  • Reassure them that it wasn’t their fault: Because the death of a pet can come as a shock, it’s not uncommon for children to feel somewhat responsible. It is your job here to reassure them that there was nothing they could have done to prevent this natural event from occurring and that their pet loved them very much. 
  • Reminisce about the good times: The death of a pet hits so hard because of how much joy they give us over the course of their lives. Encouraging your children to talk about how their pets made them feel can be a great coping strategy, as can suggesting that they write a letter to – or draw a picture of – their departed friend in the days after their death.

What Happens Next? 

Once your child has begun to process the news, what you do next is vital. It may take some time for them to accept what has happened, but you can move this process along by: 

  • Informing their wider network: If your child is struggling at home, there’s a good chance they’ll be carrying their feelings with them to nursery, school or anywhere else they go. You should take this opportunity to explain the situation to your child’s caregiver, with the understanding that this may have an impact on their behaviour. Keep your child in the loop here to ensure that transparency is maintained at all times. 
  • Holding a special ceremony in your pet’s honour: Often, children are sad that they didn’t get to say a physical goodbye to their beloved pet. Allow them to gain some closure by holding a ceremony in which they can give their pet the send-off they deserve. This can involve a burial, moments of reminiscence and special readings.
