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 Clive Cook 7th Apr 2020

    I would like to thank the team at Rowland's Funeral Services for the very sensitive and professional way in which they have handled every aspect of my fathers funeral arrangements. Sadly he died at the start of the Covid-19 lockdown and their actions, warmth and professionalism have helped us immensely during this difficult time.

    Charlotte was so caring and the whole emotional experience of organising a funeral for my daughter was made so much easier and less stressful because of her. Thankyou Charlotte from Wendys Mum

  • 5 David Adams 24th Feb 2020

    Wonderful service and care of our dear late mother and of our whole family. Nothing was too much trouble for Charlotte and Owen and the team. They were always kind efficient and discreet and a calm influence at a sad time. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rowlands funeral service as it always felt so personal.

  • 5 Caroline Matthews 16th Feb 2020

    Many thanks to Charlotte and all the team for all your support.

  • 5 Anne Green 15th Feb 2020

    We can't speak highly enough of the care provided to our family by Rowlands Funeral Service. The kindness, dignity, compassion and professionalism of all the staff was amazing. We can understand why my father asked specifically for us to deal with Marsha. Nothing was too much trouble and every detail was taken of. Thank you so much for all your care. I would highly recommend the service given by Rowlands.

  • 5 Amanda Money-Cassabinca 9th Feb 2020

    Marsha and her lovely family have looked after my Mother and Grandmother so it was an obvious choice for my Father, they think of every little detail and its all done with such care and thought, I know that I don’t have to worry about anything and with my loss thats all I want, I would highly recommend them.

  • 5 Lindsey Matthews 27th Jan 2020

    Turning to Rowlands of Petersfield on the death of our Mother was like turning to close friends. 
    From the moment we contacted them we could relax in the knowledge that all would be well & carried out in accordance with Mum's & our own wishes.
    With total professionalism & understanding kindness the staff at Rowlands supported us throughout this sad & difficult time. 
    Respect, consideration, honesty, efficiency, attention to detail & in depth knowledge are all values we experienced on this occasion & during a previous loss two years ago.
    We will always be grateful to Rowlands for all of this & for enabling us to honour & celebrate the lives of two very different people, so dear to us, in funerals reflecting each of their personalities. 
                                             The Family of Enid Laura Vere Brewer & Alan McLeod Inglis 

  • 5 Michael Gardiner 26th Jan 2020

    My family cannot thank Rowlands enough for the care and thoughtful way in which we were helped through such a difficult time. This was from the very first contact through to the funeral which was wonderfully organised and was just right for my late father in every way.

  • 5 Rita Stallard 23rd Jan 2020

    THE FUNERAL OF MY BELOVED HUSBAND ALLAN WOULD NOT HAVE GONE SO SMOOTHLY WITHOUT THE KIND, HELPFUL SUPPORT AND GUIDANCE FROM ALL THE STAFF AT ROWLANDS, EXTRA SPECIAL MENTION FOR CHARLOTTE WHO WAS ALWAYS THERE FOR ME. IT MADE SUCH A DIFFERENCE DURING AN AMAZINGLY DIFFICULT TIME.
    EVEN THOUGH I KNEW MY HUSBAND WAS GOING TO DIE IT IS STILL A TERRIBLE SHOCK WHEN IT ACTUALLY HAPPENS, CHARLOTTE HELPED ME THROUGH IT ALL SPACE DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO LIST ALL THAT SHE DID OR THE ADVICE OFFERED.

    THE HORSE AND CARRIAGE CARRYING MY HUSBAND'S COFFIN TO THE CHURCH MEANT THAT ALLAN WENT OUT IN STYLE, JUST THE SAME WAY AS HE LIVED. CLASSY AND WITH GOOD TASTE.

    THANK YOU ROWLANDS AND THANK YOU CHARLOTTE SO VERY MUCH.
