To Matthew

Just want to say thank you so much for the care and compassion you showed our Fudge on her final journey. I know she would have loved the beautiful views around her and it was so comforting to know we could come and see her to say our farewells.

She looked so at peace when we saw her and lovely that we were able to bring her back home the same day. We can assure your service to our family and friends.

Thank you once again.

Amie, Keith, Rhiannon & Douglas


Dear Mr Holmes

To Matthew

We can not express to you how greatful we were for your kindness with the passing of our beloved Milo on the 27th February 2016.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you for all you did on Saturday. We know it was such a large request which you effortlessly completed for us.

Our hearts are saddened by his passing, but you made the first step of our journey easier.

Thank you for letting us bring him home.

Yours sincerely,

Sheridon, Tracey & Richard

I just wanted to say thank you for your care and sympathy on behalf of my wife Barbara and I, after the awful loss of our much loved Yorkie Bobbi.

Visiting you at your business has helped us a lot, especially you being able to see us out at such short notice.

Although we were not at your premises for vey long, we did not feel rushed, and were impressed with the efficiency with which you run your business.

Once again, thank you very much.

Kind regards

Peter Lockyer


Dear Matthew

We want to thankyou for your caring and compassionate service  that you provided in the loss of our  most beautiful girl Magic.

The feeling of grief  is overwheling but knowing Magic was being cared for and respected, made our heart ache a bit lighter.

Magic was a special girl and always will be in our hearts, She collected the post and loved nothing more than going for a walk.

The professional and empathic way you made us feel was a credit to you and your family.

All the best

Jan Arblaster


“Dear Mr Holmes,

My wife and I would very much like to thank you for your most excellent service following the unfortunate passing of our beloved cat Phoebe, and wanted to share our thoughts with other pet owners whom may be undecided about independent pet cremation but would benefit greatly from your amenity.

Once we have made the decision, and brought her to you, our loss and feelings of emotional heartache were made a little easier to cope with. From the Chapel of Rest overlooking the green fields, to the personal privacy and guidance you gave us were exceptional.

Knowing that Phoebe’s ashes were returned to us in their entirety made it even more comforting. The casket, with the engraved nameplate that you do on-site, is beautiful, as are the other remembrance items that we took away from her service.

In all, the compassionate delivery of the service was better than any human could wish for.

Best wishes,

Mr and Mrs Buckley”


Dear Matthew

I just want to thank you so very much for your kind, compassionate and caring service that you provided in the loss of Bailey, our much loved German Shorthaired Pointer. Holmes in Heaven is a truly beautiful setting and we felt so reassured by all that we saw. I cannot think of a nicer place to bring our dogs when the time comes to say our farewells. I was so impressed by your professionalism which certainly made the transition through a distressing period much easier.
I have experienced similar ‘Top Drawer’ standards at the Holmestead Hydrotherapy Pool with our girl Gale, run by your sister Rebecca. Obviously a talented family with a great passion for animals, in all aspects. I cannot recommend you highly enough.
Sadly with a 15 year old at home it may not be too long before we meet up again but it is so comforting to know we will be in the most capable hands. Thank you so much from all of us.

Kind Regards

Sue Rose and Family


Dear Matthew

We would just like to thank you for everything you did for Schubert on that dreadful day. The service you provide is amazing it makes a very difficult day more special if you know what I mean. I am sorry for not writing sooner but I am still devastated about losing Schubert, he was the love of my life. We will recommend you to anyone.

Pauline & Paul Halewood.


Dear Mr Holmes

Just a note to say a well deserved thank you. I’m sure Muppet will be right at home on the fantastic and beautiful setting you have provided. It is not very often I praise ‘service’ providers but I have to say this one is totally 1st class.

Thank you and best wishes

Mr & Mrs Lamb



Dear Matthew

Thank you so much for the care and compassion you gave to Bill, David and myself and for the respect and dignity shown to RUSTY on his final journey…
He was a loving, constant companion and we miss him dreadfully but the service we received from you has made the parting a little easier and the chapel of rest and wonderful views were much appreciated…Rusty would have loved the open fields…….and now he is back home with us…Thank you again Matthew.

Val Smith


To Matthew,

Thank you very much for making things so nice for our final farewell to Jack, we are so grateful to you. We loved him so much.

Jim and Lynne Brown.



On behalf of Paul and myself, I would like to thank you sincerely for caring so compassionately with our loss of ‘Poppy’. She was Paul’s life and he made her part of my family and this played a key role in the development of my brother’s development.
Knowing ‘Poppy’ was treated with respect and dignity made the loss easier to bear as it’s the last hours that in the early loss are at the brains forefront.
Many thanks and best wishes,

Paul Howfield and Family.


Holmes In Heaven,

Thank you very much for the caring and compassionate service you gave us after the painful loss of our much loved little lady, ‘Lucy’.
We know she had a dignified and respectful ‘final day’ in your hands and that she came home to us.

From Lucy, Sheelagh and Paul


Dear Holmes In Heaven,

Our thanks once again,

Thank you so much

Holmes In Heaven,

A very big thank you for all you did.

From all at Rose Cottage


To Matthew,

Thank you for all you did for my little ‘Chloe’.
With love from,

Mrs Gilbert


Dear Matthew,

To say “thank you” is totally inadequate to express our appreciation for all the care and kindness you gave to our lovely Parker. It goes without saying that we miss him dreadfully, he has left a gap in many lives which is a great tribute to his great personality.

With great affection,

Penny and Terry Moore



Many thanks for your kind attention and kind words at a time when we needed it most. It has been a very sad time for us both and the rest of the family.
Just coming to your pet crematorium was in itself very comforting. Although we are finding this sad time hard to come to terms with, it is a great comfort to know ‘Maddy’ is back with us again.
Once again many thanks for your help and professional approach.
Good luck with your business for the future, but somehow we don’t think you will need it.

Cheers, Geoff and Carol Williams


Dear Holmes In Heaven,

I just wanted to thank you for the help you have given, not only to Jake, but to Jayne and myself. You have made the transition through a difficult time just that little more bearable, your support and kind comforting words have meant so much to us.
Your professionalism is impeccable. The obvious commitment and passion for the work you undertake, and the animals, you treat and take care of is outstanding. We couldn’t have asked for better people to care of Jake than you.
Thank you again and it has been a pleasure meeting you.

Peter Ryder
Dear Matthew

I just wanted to say thank you so much from Aaron and me for looking after our darling dog Hercules. And most of all a big Thank You from Hercules! He was very special to us, a vital member of our family and we felt very safe entrusting our boy to your care.
Hercules was a very happy, loyal, loving and friendly dog who I would have described as a perfect little gentleman. Thanks to your compassionate and friendly service we know that Hercules is at peace now, and we will never forget how you helped us honour his memory by laying him to rest with care, dignity and respect. Losing Hercules was very hard, but being able to return his loyal companionship over the years with this one last gift from us to him has helped to ease the pain and show him that we will always love him.

When the sad time comes to say goodbye to another fury member of our family we know who we can trust and where to bring them. For the sake of our three Jack Russell Terriers I hope that we don’t see you very soon though!

Again many thanks and best wishes
Debbie and Aaron


Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your warm welcome and kindness at a time of great upset in losing Hannah, our much loved elderly cocker spaniel. Your service at the end of a pet’s life took the anxiety out of the event. We hope you will do very well showing kindness at the very sad times for owners as they say goodbye to their deceased pets.

What a wonderful view you have from the crematorium, so peaceful. Thank you for the cup of tea, it was very welcome.


David and Jill Ledger.

Dear Matthew,

Just a note to say thank you for your kindness and reassurance when we brought our dear girl Winnie to you last Month.

I would also like to say sorry for doubting your integrity. You do a very special job Matthew in dealing with people in their sadness and helping them through a difficult time.

The presentation of our ‘Winnies’ ashes was just perfect and the lovely framed photo has pride of place for everyone to see.

Much love and very best wishes to you.
