Individual cremation

At Essex Pet Crematorium we provide an individual cremation service, and ensure the utmost care is taken of your beloved companion. Your pet is handled sympathetically and with dignity, at all times.

Your pet will be collected and ashes returned to your home or veterinary’s surgery as required. Alternatively you may bring your pet directly to us, or collect the ashes from us in person. Please contact us for further information and use our location page to find us.

We guarantee that the ashes returned to you will be the ashes of your pet, and only the ashes of your pet.

After the cremation, the ashes of your pet will be carefully placed in your choice of casket or urn, and returned to you as arranged. We offer a large range of caskets and urns to suit all needs and price ranges.

Alternatively, we can provide you with a cardboard presentation container for the scattering of your pet’s ashes.

You are welcome to visit us, to see how we manage our individual cremation service. Please call us to make an appointment.

Should you ever have any problem with our services, simply call us, and we will put it right for you, straightaway.

For more information on our individual cremation services please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone, mobile or email. 

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.

Caskets and Keepsakes

For long lasting memorials of your pet, we offer a wide range of caskets and keepsake items. Remember your pet with a photo plaque, figurine, Crystal Laser Etched glass plaque, memory pot, garden feature such as a bench or statue, or marble headstone. These are just a few of the items we can offer you.

We use Petributes for our caskets and keepsakes. Some examples are shown on our Caskets and Keepsakes page, but there are many other items, so please ask to see the brochure.
