Is it legal to bury pets in the garden of one’s house?

Yes. You may be surprised to learn that it’s also legal to dispose of human remains in private gardens, as long as the death has been registered and a registrar’s certificate or coroner’s order has been issued and a licence obtained from the local authority. The only stipulation in either case is that you don’t cause a “nuisance” to other property owners or a health hazard.  Do also think however what you will be leaving for subsequent owners of the property.
