What We Offer

We offer a calm, dignified goodbye to your pet.

We believe, wherever possible, that euthanasia should be at home. Our mission is to turn a heartbreaking time into a positive experience. We know how hard it is when deciding to put your pet to sleep and we are here to support you through this difficult process.

When you contact us we will discuss what you need and arrange a time to visit you to carry out the euthanasia. Afterwards we can arrange for a cremation. For more detail on the process of euthanasia please see our Process page.

Who We Are

We are Ben & Christine, an experienced vet and vet nurse team. We started Final Rest because we have seen the benefits of euthanasia in the home and we know how hard it is for veterinary clinics to offer this service.

We are proud to work alongside a small group of vets who share our values:

What Our Clients Say


We had to make quite possibly the most heartbreaking and hardest decision to let our beloved old girl Doris slip away peacefully. Christine and Ben were compassionate and understanding. They listened and ensured all our needs and wishes were met to allow Doris to fall asleep peacefully at home.

Our final moments with Doris were dignified and peaceful as Ben gave us plenty of time to stroke Doris and hold her paw until her last breath. What was a very distressing time, became a beautiful and loving goodbye for our old girl.


Thank you so very much for being there for myself, my partner, and Inca on the 9th of August.
We couldn't have wished for a better way for Inca's final day to happen.

Ben, you are the most lovely, calming and considerate man, and when Inca came over to sniff you we knew it was the right time. I cannot say enough praise that would give you justice.
With all our hearts we thank you.


Compared to our many past experiences of saying goodbye to our dearest friends, Final Rest has to be, by far the best. Chance was at home in her garden with the sun on her back, her favourite place with her favourite people. It just felt so right and for us the space, tranquillity and peace for all of us was second to none.

Thank you so much for the help, support and guidance.

Trevor & Karen,

Heartfelt thanks to Ben of Final Rest who could help our beloved border collie in her time of need. Has fantastic palliative care knowledge and advice.

Penny passed peacefully in her own home and went for cremation tucked up in a basket with her ball and toys. Would have no hesitation in recommending. Thank you.


Ben was so calming, professional (my son referred to him as the nicest man he ever met!) and put us all at ease, but most importantly, put Tilly at ease. He took his time and there was not one moment I felt worried or unsure. My partner, my son and myself could not get over how the saddest day could be made quite beautiful with the peaceful passing that, after 14 years of bringing so many people joy, Tilly completely deserved.
