I cannot speak highly enough of the services provided by Rowland's Funeral Service for my late husband William Bull. Marsha in the office was always kind and mindful of our feelings, whilst dealing with everything to do with his funeral really calmly and very competently. Felix Muscat, who organised and led his funeral service at The Oaks Crematorium, helped us celebrate William's passing in exactly the way we wished for him. He enabled us to enjoy all our memories of him and to share them with our relatives and friends. Although we were all so sad at William's death, Marsha and Felix ensured that his funeral was and always will be a special, treasured memory of him for us all.

Thank you for giving Steve the most amazing send off.  The Oaks Crematorium is a Beautiful setting and the Service lead by Martin was perfect. Thank you so much from Lynnette, Julie, Holly & Zoe

From the start of the process and up to and including my Father's funeral, I have been completely looked after by Rowlands. I could not recommend them more.

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.

    Marsha & Charlotte could not have been more helpful in this awkward task. They helped me through all the complications of Death Certificates and even went out of their way to secure me the right paperwork
