About Us

Willowview is a new family business which has been set up in the memory of Joey, the most loving loyal Rhodesian Ridgeback you could ever wish to meet, sadly he passed away at home in Oct 2016 after a short battle with cancer. After hearing so many stories about what happens to your pet and not getting your own pet’s ashes back etc, we approached a friend who has a horse cremation service and asked if he would cremate Joey by himself in the horse unit. This gave so much peace of mind at such a sad time that we were guaranteed it was Joey and only Joey we were getting back and he was treated individually with such love and care. After much deliberation and discussion, we decided that we could offer other people the same peace of mind as we got also when we looked into starting this business.
