Excellent and caring company and would recommend very highly

Our family dog Masie was sadly put to sleep after being with us for 15 years. We were recommended Resting Pets by our vet as my dad couldn't bare the thought on burying her. Myself and my family was as absolutely amazed that this place existed, the staff was so understanding and so lovely, I couldn't of asked for a better place for our dog to be cremated. We visited the chapel of rest and we could take as long as we could to say our goodbyes. The staff was fantastic. Thank you so much to all at Resting Pets xx More...

Resting Pets were brilliant with helping us say goodbye to our Pippin. He deserved the best for everything he has done for us. A lovely family business where no query was too much. Thank you for everything! 🌟 More...

Fantastic, kind service. It was hard saying goodbye to Darcy and then to decide on what next, but this place was really helpfull. The option to have a paw print and clay print is lovely and they came out perfect. We miss Darcy a lot (glad he did make it to 13.5y), but the service we received definitely made things a bit easier. Thank you very much to everyone there! :) His paw prints are getting a nice place at home. :) More...

This place is a jewel. My guinea pig passed away last night and although it was hard to say good bye to my Lola ...when i walked away i knew she was in good hands and would be looked after. Id highly reccomend. The staff were lovely. You get time in a chapel to say your final good byes and theres even tissues and a rememberance book you can fill out. Thank you Resting Pets for taking my beautiful girl in so she can be laid to rest with dignity in beautiful surroundings Mrs Anna Willard x More...

We can not recommend Resting Pets highly enough. They make an awful situation bearable. Thank you for your compassion and dignity. We wouldn't entrust our furbabies with anyone else. � xx More...

We took our Jack Russell Millie here nearly 2 years ago now. Could not fault the service, everyone was so kind and respectful. We chose a small heart urn to have her ashes returned to us in and they also returned her blanket. Made a very upsetting time a little bit easier. Thank you. More...

Highly recommend Resting Pets, polite receptionist and staff, very caring, used this company 11yrs ago, wanted my Cody back in time for Christmas has we lost her on the 20th, just knowing that they did manage to get her back to me was a great comfort, now my family are going through the same experience again, and we entrusted our dog Roxy to this company knowing that we trust them xx


Abigail Edis

Wonderful place, very understanding staff and lovely personal service. Sadly we are regularly here with our many guinea pigs but when the time comes both the dog and cat will be going here. Always a quick service with individual cremations and prices are reasonable. Would always recommend here to friends and family. More...

Really grateful for the dignified and respectful manner I've been dealt with every time I've been here, at an awful time of sadness the staff and service make it far easier to cope with. Thankyou x

Michele Bolton

I am so grateful to Resting Pets for making a very difficult time more bearable for me. My poor dog had a massive seizure and I had to make the decision to let him go on Bank holiday Monday . I had always said he would be laid to rest at home and I would take him on his last journey to Resting Pets myself . Due to the sudden nature of his illness he had to be PTS at the vets . ..how good it was to find out that Resting Pets offer an out of hours service . They had someone meet me there and help gently lay my 50 kg boy safely in the chapel of rest on his own bed . We were given loads of time with him and the lady was kind and respectful . The cremation was done as per my requests and my lad safely handed back to me on Thursday . Thank you so much to all the staff . ...� More...

Thank you so much for taking care of our beloved Cassy. We have her footprint and memories as a constant reminder and now she is home in her place where she belongs. Xx


Molly Lester

Our beautiful little Jack Russell, Honey, passed away last Thursday after 17 years of being by our sides. Resting Pets were absolutely fantastic and this afternoon we were able to bring our girls ashes home so she can be with us all forever. The little urn we chose is beautiful and I feel so much more comforted now I know she’s back safe with us and resting where she was most happy. Thank you all for your work. Our little Honey sends you cuddles from heaven and our family sends you love from earth xxx More...

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped us when we lost our beautiful panda, such love and care and compaction from the team, very understanding for you when you shed a tear while dealing with the details to them and they allow you to take your time without pressure to hurry up, they have made everything easy to organise and sent our polo home with such a lovely urn and paw print,thank you again.

Thank you so much for looking after our Charlie and being so kind and patient with us when we said our final goodbye to her. Deeply grateful for everything you did. Highly recommended More...


Louise Mair

Thank you so much Claire and company. You handled our lovely cat Tigger with such care and dignity, we especially loved the poem you included with his ashes - that really touched us and captured exactly how we felt, so thank you.


Miranda Hart

Our kitten Gizmo was attacked by a fox 3 days before Christmas and sadly passed away at the vets not in a very nice state. Both Kew Vets in Harlow and Wood Farm were sensitive, kind and very professional. We paid for a personal cremation and also a paw print keepsake which we have received today. The ashes, certificate and boxed paw impression all beautifully packaged and couldn’t stop crying. Thank you so much for taking care of our little Gizmo. �� More...

Your pet will be cremated solely by itself, ensuring you receive all and only your pet's ashes. This is our promise to you.

Burial in our beautiful Garden of Remembrance here at Wood Far, Ongar

We can take a clay imprint or an 'inkless' print of your pet's paw ahead of the cremation service. These make lovely keepsakes, and can also be made into jewellery items at a later date. We also have a stunning range of ash jewellery, allowing for a pinch of your pet's ashes to be with you at all times.
