Our thanks to Marsha and all at Rowlands for the sympathetic and dignified manner in which our mother's funeral was conducted. Their support was much appreciated at a most sad time.

Richard Constant 19th Nov 2020

Outstanding service - helpful, efficient and sympathetic. Marsha was wonderful.

David Farr 30th Oct 2020

Rowlands helped make my mum's funeral an apt celebration of her life. It could have been a depressing, sad affair, but it wasn't, it ended up being exactly what it should have been, a really nice day. Owen's help and patience ensured we could get what we wanted and covered all the questions I had without me needing to ask. On the day itself everything went to plan, the hearse was immaculate and Owen was on hand to guide me when needed. Owen was professional and supportive and I'd definitely recommend Rowlands.

About Us

At Rowland’s Funeral Services, Marsha Vincent and her caring team are on call to help, when families need the support of a local funeral director.

The experienced funeral directors at this long-established Petersfield funeral home are here to make things as reassuring as possible for bereaved families at a very difficult time.

Providing comfortable facilities for local people to arrange their loved one’s funeral, the Rowland’s team is here to listen, respond and provide as much support and respectful advice as is needed.

This funeral home has two bright and comfortable lounges for families making funeral arrangements and its own facilities on site to look after people and prepare them for their funeral. There are four beautiful private chapels of rest, with a key available to families so they can visit their loved one at any time of day or night, without having to make an appointment.

Rowland’s Funeral Service can help with every element of the funeral according to your wishes, or family tradition – and can arrange for any type of funeral vehicle, from limousines and horse-drawn hearse to a motorcycle-led cortege.

Families seeking a venue for the funeral may consider Rowland’s own funeral chapel, for the service and catered wake. The funeral home has its own private car park and, providing complete services for the bereaved all under one roof, families can view coffins and memorial masonry in its dedicated showrooms.

This caring funeral home is a member of the two leading funeral professional organisations, the NAFD and SAIF and proudly upholds the high standard of service to the bereaved that both institutes maintain.

Run by a family that is there to support yours at a very difficult time, call Rowland’s Funeral Services for respectful and dignified funeral service as soon as it is needed.

  • 5 Anthony Oates 13th Oct 2020

    The service we received from Rowlands was outstanding from the moment we instructed them, right through until the day of our dear Mums funeral. 
    Owen was very supportive in every way and ensured that all our wishes were carried out. 
    We couldn’t had asked for a better send off for Mum.
    A massive heart felt thank you to Owen and his team for everything they did. Mum would have appreciated it as much as we did. 

  • 5 REBECCA HOLLAND 5th Oct 2020

    Thank you to everyone at Rowlands, you are all so professional and lovely at such a difficult time.

  • 5 Jean Halliday 25th Sep 2020

    we found Rowlands funeral service sensitive and caring as well as efficient. We were left the right amount of space and time to think about what was required so there was no rushing the process which of its very nature is a difficult time.

    My mother chose Rowlands herself because she appreciated their service.

  • 5 Sue Mingaye 20th Sep 2020

    At a time of huge loss and grief, we cannot have asked for more help, support and kindness. Handled professionally with the right amount of tact and empathy. Understood the kind of service we wanted and provided the funeral my husband had always told me he wanted. The celebrant was also wonderful and again, understood and provided just the right sort of words and funeral we wanted.

    We had asked for an unusual choice of music and it was provided with no fuss or problem.

    Rowlands also provided services to my husbands parents a few years ago and I know as a Petersfield family they considered that Rowlands 'the people to go to' and that is why my husband also wanted me to use Rowlands. I have in my will that I am to be handled by them as well.

    Thanks to Marsha and all for such an appropriate send off for my husband and for the support, tact and humanity and respect they gave the family.

  • 5 Tracey Greenaway 15th Sep 2020

    Owen was the person who led my funeral and directed me through everything I had to do. I found him extremely kind and caring and patient. He made the process as easy as possible and I am very grateful for everything him and the company did. I could not recommend them enough.

  • 5 Heidi Wilde 13th Sep 2020

    The kindness, respect and attention to detail that Marsha and her team provided was second to none. Seriously could not ask for anything more or better. Positively perfect. Thank you 

  • 5 Barbara Lucas 12th Sep 2020

    Rowlands organised my father’s funeral extremely well. Despite the fact that it had to be done remotely-they couldn’t have taken more care!
    They supported me in my grief, and I can’t recommend them highly enough.
    If I ever have another funeral, they’ll be my undertaker of choice.

  • 5 Sue Ayer 7th Sep 2020

    Top class service from start to finish. Charlotte was very easy to talk to, very friendly, professional and made us feel at ease. Communication by email or phone were replied to instantly. The funeral service itself went very well and was exactly how we wanted it. Charlotte even went to the extra trouble of sourcing us a biodegradable urn. I would highly recommend.

  • 5 Hazel Leppard 9th Jul 2020

    Charlotte was so helpful and made everything go very smoothly. I especially appreciate that she removed the cards from the floral tributes and sent them to me in a album.

    Thank you very much Charlotte.

  • 5 Gerry Timmis 4th Jul 2020

    An extremely professional service provided in a compassionate and caring manner.

  • 5 Jane Collingwood 13th Jun 2020

    Right from the point of initial contact Rowland's, and especially Charlotte, were wonderful. Sympathetic, so helpful, patient and with great care, consideration and compassion Charlotte lead and guided us through the entire time. The day of the service was stressful enough, but with the added restrictions and limitations that the Covid pandemic place on such events it was almost unbearable. However Charlotte and her team were all so calm and reassuring - a great ability at such a time.

  • 5 Vic Hindson 2nd Jun 2020

    Rowlands Funeral Services guided us, with care and compassion, through the difficult task of arranging a funeral.
    When making the arrangements nothing was too much trouble, Marsha was kind, patient and supportive of our needs.
    On the day of the funeral Owen was a steady, calm and reassuring guide throughout.
    Their service is exceptional and we would thoroughly recommend them.

  • 5 Sara Densham 25th May 2020

    All the friendly team deal with you with such kindness and compassion and make the process of organising the funeral as pain free as possible. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them. Even in the times of covid 19 I was given excellent service.
