We have used their services sadly several times, they are very kind and passionate about the your animals passing and is all done very dignified. Couldn't get a better service.

I am disappointed having to write this review. Unfortunately my west highland terrier was put to sleep at Forest vets in Harlow (who are excellent) they mentioned that Resting pets could collect him and take out the cremation. I was told I would receive a call from them on Monday - no call was received however I called them on Tuesday to finalise details and make payment. We were then called on the Wednesday to say the cremation was complete. Due to work commitments I arranged to collect him on Saturday. On Sataurday my wife and I made our way to collect him, upon collection the service was very impersonally and you are basically just handing a carrier bag with a box in it, this is a real shame as the contents were presented very well. My wife left sharply due to being so upset but I stayed inside and purchased a necklace for her to hold a small amount of Georgies ashes, the younger lady behind the counter who was much better said she couldn’t put the ashes in straight away and deliver the item to our home on Monday or Tuesday morning at the latest. I then made payment and left. On Tuesday at 16:00 I called them to say the necklace hadn’t arrived to be told they basically forgot. I was really unhappy here as my wife had wasted two days in and she was also really looking forward to the necklace for sentimental reasons. I had a moan and was told someone would drop them to us on their way home that night. Upon me arriving home my wife was in tears due to the necklace being extremely dirty and scratched on the back where they had filled the ashes, clearly rushing due to them forgetting. I emailed immediately due to them being closed and got a very cold series of emails from the director Kate the following morning. Refusing to collect the item unless I paid them £50 and also accusing us of damaging the item in the first place. She also was to busy to accept any phone calls for the whole day. I had to take the item back myself for a refund. Warning to any potential customer - Resting pets provide a great initial service although they do sneak in a £28 collection charge if they collect your animal from the vet which is not disclosed until you receive your invoice that’s already been paid. When you collect your pet it’s so impersonal and makes a bad situation even worse and if things go wrong then you get no customer service and if you escalate this to a director the customer service is even worse. My advice would be spend your money elsewhere.

We were recommended Resting Pets by our vets for the cremation of our Hamster, as you can imagine this was a very upsetting time and from the very beginning we were updated every step of the way. A very special thank you to Claire, who has been so caring, understanding and patient with my questions. Thank you so much for looking after her and for returning her to Blythwood vets. Cannot rate them any more highly or thank them enough for being so lovely. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Could not recommend this service enough. The whole process was dealt with professionally and the whole team was very caring. Nothing was to much trouble and they helped a very hard time that little bit easier.

Friendly enough on the phone but they don't listen. Our beloved Chester died suddenly in a traffic accident, only 2 years old, so needed a quick cremation as we were heading back to Germany. We left him there, said our goodbyes and they asked if anything we wanted, we all said his collar and name tag. Collected the ashes the next day and collar and name tag missing. Told they would have been cremated with him in which case surely the collars metal parts would be in with his ashes. They aren't. Assuming they're even Chesters ashes of course, we'll never know. So no name tag, no collar and not sure we even have his ashes now. Very distressing throughout. I'd find someone else these people don't care.

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

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! 🌟

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. :)

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

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.

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

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.

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 . ...�

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

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.

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. ��
