Welcome to Essex Pet Crematorium

We are a private family business offering a range of pet crematorium services to bereaved pet owners.

Essex Pet Crematorium achieves accreditation from independent inspectors


Essex Pet Crematorium is proud to be a member of the Association of Private Pet Cemeteries and Crematoria (APPCC), having won the approval of independent inspectors, to be accredited under a new independent inspection scheme which guarantees a highly professional and dignified cremation for pets.



Established since 1989, we understand that losing a pet can be like losing a close friend, and believe that your close companion deserves a dignified farewell. We pride ourselves in our reliable, friendly and sympathetic service, with collection from your home or your vet’s surgery as appropriate.


Our individual cremation service will suit your needs. We ensure the utmost care of your pets and have experience of all pets large and small.

We are a local company servicing the whole of Essex and surrounding areas. We offer the peace of mind that your pet will be treated with dignity and respect, when their time comes to say goodbye.

We are members of the Association of Private Pet Cemeteries & Crematoria (APPCC). Our individual cremations come within the scope of their Code of Practice, which requires a respectful, dignified and caring service. We also provide veterinary practices with other cremation services which are outside the scope of this Code.

Same Day and While you wait service

Should you wish, we are usually able to provide cremation services while you wait. If you prefer, you may collect your pet's ashes later the same day.

Memory Urns & Keepsakes

At Essex Pet Crematorium we understand that owners treat their pets as individuals and would like to keep them in their memories. We can supply a range of keepsakes, caskets and urns.

Please see our Memory Urns & Keepsakes page or contact us for further information.
