Phoenix Pet Cremations offers a compassionate, high-quality individual and personal cremation service for your much-loved companion at our crematorium located in Boreham, Essex.

Why choose Phoenix Pet Cremations for your Small Pets?

We offer a sensitive, same day service, where your pet is treated with dignity and respect. Unlike some pet cremation services you can be assured that your beloved pet will be given its own individual cremation and not added to clinical waste, nor other pets that are also to be cremated.

With our professional and caring attitude, we can collect from your home, or from your vet. Alternatively, you can bring your pet directly to us, and we will perform a same-day cremation service at no extra cost.

Same Day Cremation

Our Same day cremation service is available Monday to Friday at no extra cost,  You would be able to wait or stay local while the cremation takes place. Although we do not have facilities for you to wait on site whilst the cremation takes place, and we respect that some clients travel quite a distance to us, we are able to offer suggestions for local attractions for you until you return to us later the same day.  Same day cremations take place during our normal working hours of 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday.

Attended Pet Cremation (£35) - This is optional and in addition to the cremation cost

For added peace of mind you can be present as your pet is gently placed into the chamber. This operates in combination with our Same Day Pet Cremation Service. You have the choice of saying goodbye to your pet in our Farewell Room before accompanying them to the cremation chamber. We will give you the choice of either watching as they are placed into the chamber or being present but without seeing them placed in. You can then either stay in the local area whilst your pet’s individual cremation takes place. We are able to provide you with an information pack on the local area if you wish to go for a walk along the river or have something to eat or drink in one of the local villages whilst we look after them for you. Once their ashes has been prepared you can return to take them home with you later the same day (normally within 2 to 3 hours). This service has limited availability and you would have to prearrange with the office prior to your appointment.  

What can I keep the ashes in?

You may collect your pet's ashes from the privacy of our private room at our crematorium, your local veterinary surgery, or we can deliver them to your home.

We have a number of options available to keep your pet's ashes in including a small Oak Casket with Brass Plaque, a solid ash hardwood casket, or a paw print urn.

A popular choice is our Oak Photo Frames, that can be wall mounted and have discreet integrated ashes compartments so that you can always have a treasured keepsake of your beloved pet.

Phoenix Pet Cremations also offers you a truly unique and personal Laser engraving service where we can personalise any plaques, grave markers or photo frames to your needs by engraving an image of your pet to the plaque. 

Our full range of urns, caskets, and keepsakes for small pets can be found here.

 Personalised Laser Engraving

We are also able to offer a more personalised way of presenting ashes via our personalised laser engraving services. This can be done directly into a wooden casket itself or on a brass coloured plaque. We can also go as far as to offer a truly personalised touch by laser engraving a picture of your pet on the plaque itself. Other options vary from personalised laser engraved photo tribute boxes, photo frames and grave markers. This is our bespoke in-house service and is available to have on the same day of cremation.
