Outdoor cat Ashley was put to sleep after ‘old age finally caught up with him’, a spokesman said.

“Staff are not sure quite how he ended up at the facility in Horsham Road; he just arrived one day and decided to make the Crematorium his home,” a spokesman said.

“He is already very much missed by all of the staff and he provided a significant amount of comfort to our bereaved visitors.”

A short memorial service for Ashley will be planned.
