In our experience, many masters wish to bring their companion themselves to the cemetery. This choice is left to your discretion. Difficult, impossible for you? Masters and Companions will take care of it.

Yes, it is possible to identify your animal and to take the time to say good-bye before the burial, but each case will be evaluated individually at the time of the inhumation.

Currently, the Laval Cemetery charges no annual maintenance fees.

Prearrangements allow you to reserve plots at the current rates, protecting yourself against increases. They also allow you to immediately plan and choose neighbouring plots for the burial of all your animals.

The contract must be paid in full before your companion is buried. We accept credit cards, debit cards and other electronic payment methods (PayPal, electronic transfer).
