A very professional and sympathetic service. I would highly recommend Rowlands to help anyone during their difficult time.

Anthony Langham 2nd Feb 2024

Charlotte and the whole staff were extremely professional whilst maintaining a level of compassion and understanding. This was the first time that we as a family had been in this situation and they were able to provide advice and assistance for every situation in a calming and reassuring way. Really nothing was too much for them and they accommodated all of our requests without hesitation. There was no hard sell for more expensive routes and there local knowledge and local contacts showed out constantly. I would highly recommend their service.

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 Keith Durward 31st Jan 2024

    I was very impressed with the Owen and the team from Rowlands. They were compassionate and well organised and I felt very reassured about their ability to deliver-despite the challenges they were given. They had to work on a Saturday and fill a grave in just before dusk. A very personal service.

    Rowlands have been incredibly helpful during this very difficult time for us all. Having not gone through this before they answered all our questions and aqueries and nothing was to big or too small for them to assist us with. Special mentioned to Marsha who has been so caring and supportive to us all. The funeral was a lovely service and we had many comments on what a lovely, beautiful service it was.
    Huge thank you to everyone at Rowlands.

    Owen and Elise, we’re so efficient when answering any questions. Their warmth and personal touch couldn’t be faulted in any way.

  • 5 Deborah Haddow 17th Oct 2023

    Right from the death of my father, to the death of my mother a week later, then the arrangements for a double burial, I was able to speak to Charlotte, either on the phone or by email whenever I needed to. We worked together to get exactly the right arrangements in place. It felt supportive and professional at all times. Giving me confidence that certain things could be sorted out without me having to worry about them, like the cemetary, flowers and the obituary. It was exactly what I needed at a time when I felt completely knocked off balance.

  • 5 Carol Moore 16th Oct 2023

    Rowland's have been both professional and sympathetic throughout the whole process. Marsha kept us informed every step of the way and made sure that everything went smoothly.
    The funeral itself was perfect. Sarah Weller (Celebrant) listened carefully to our ideas and helped ensure that the service was a true reflection and celebration of Gary's life.
    Their kindness and understanding has helped us tremendously during a very difficult and emotional time.

  • 5 Jo Bason 16th Oct 2023

    The one to one contact was superb from as soon as Dad had died to after the wake. Having such care and continuity supported my Mum and gave us all peace of mind that Dad's body was in safe and caring hands. Rowlands is an amazing team doing a difficult job but to the very highest of standards - I'll always be grateful to them.

  • 5 Ann Hollaway 7th Oct 2023

    Charlotte handled the whole process from initial meeting to the Funeral itself superbly. She and the other Rowlands staff were sympathetic and caring at such a difficult time, but also made all the arrangements so efficiently, keeping the stress away from us as immediate family. The Funeral was so well organised, and we didn't have to worry about anything. I wouldn't' hesitate to recommend them

  • 5 Maurice Cooke 3rd Oct 2023

    Rowland's from the very beginning were reassuring and carefully listened and understood my situation, they immediately confirmed how to deal with things when a loved ones passing, they gave me a contact number. I was then given an appointment to discuss the funeral arrangements. all my wishes were dealt with, care and consideration for myself and family members. Leading up the the funeral day I was regularly contacted by Rowland's confirming my wishes. The funeral day was totally free of stress from beginning to end, things ran smoothly, myself and the family menders together with those who attended experienced a wonderful and memorable service to the departed member of our family. I recommend them with total confidence of their professionalism and communication skills when dealing with the sad loss of a dear one.
