The Lawnswood Team Outside of Bayswater

Meet our local animal-loving team

Our Lawnswood story began right here in Perth in 1984, with our animal-loving team dedicated to offering personal and affordable pet cremation and funeral services. Our services are built on strong values and an ongoing commitment to providing our customers with the highest levels of professional and compassionate support.

We are an Australian owned and operated business and our team is here to support you through your grief, whenever and wherever you may need us. We understand the importance of honouring the memory of your beloved pet, helping to give them the thoughtful and heartfelt goodbye they deserve.

Our team members are still the wonderful caring people that have been supporting you locally for decades. We are proud to look after the families of Western Australia xo

Why are you passionate about working for Lawnswood?
I  had heard about Lawnswood long before I joined them 5 years ago. I loved their Customer Service ethos. So many of our team have been with Lawnswood for 9,11,13,14 years as it’s a lovely family-orientated place to work every day. Everyone at Lawnswood loves animals and wants to make a difference to someone who has just lost a beloved fur baby.
Favourite Memory From Work:
The people that come up to me when I’m in my Lawnswood car or uniform thanking me for the wonderful service we have provided.  Sometimes I get a huge fright when they just put their head inside my window to talk to me, but it’s so lovely that we have been able to help them during a heartbreaking time.

When I joined, I had been working in the vet industry for 11 years and had heard many positive comments about Lawnswood, their staff, and their valued ethics. Having a father and grandfather being vets, I had no difficulty in joining Lawnswood when the opportunity arose as it gave me the opportunity to care and provide for pets in a very rewarding manner.
