Chapel of Rest

Often owners are not able to spend the time they need with their pet at the moment of passing. Our Chapel of Rest is available to reserve should you and your family wish to visit to say your final farewells. Strictly by weekday appointment only, we will prepare your beloved pet ready for you to visit; where you can leave a message in our Remembrance Book, and take a stroll around the Garden of Remembrance. First viewings are free of charge, fees may apply for multiple viewings

Cemetery Burials

Our beautiful Garden of Remembrance gives you the option to honour your pet with a cemetery burial. Ideal for those that prefer burial over cremation, or for owners that do not have their own garden facilities at home. Prices include an Oak coffin, marble surround and engraved headstone. Prices from £695, call us for more information

Cemetery Interments

After an individual cremation, many owners prefer to inter ashes into our Garden of Remembrance rather than having them at home to rest. This option means your pet’s ashes will be interred in a Handmade Beech Casket, and the plot will be finished with an Oak post and an engraved plaque. Prices from £100 excl. Cremation, call us for more information

Home Burials

Resting Pets can now offer a bespoke service for home burials. We can collect and look after your pet until arrangements have been put in place for the burial service, by us, in your garden. On the planned day, one or two members from our team will arrive to prepare the plot; once the burial has taken place we will secure the ground. After allowing 2-3 weeks for the ground to settle, we will return to complete the plot with a marble surround and an engraved kerb stone. Subject to availability and price on request  

Home Interments

After an individual cremation, arrangements can be made for us to return ashes home in a casket ready for internment. This can be done in your garden, by a member of our team. Options can include an Oak post with engraved plaque, a tree sapling or flowering shrub of your choosing. Subject to availability and price on request
