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.

    They did a great job, keeping us updated and even organisig the recorded music.I'm leaving instructions that they will do my own funeral - hopefully way in the future.

  • 5 Mike Elwin 28th Aug 2023

    From the moment I walked through the door I knew I was in the right place. Owen instantly made me feel comfortable about having the difficult conversation initially and further conversations and interactions with Charlotte helped guide the family during the process.
    On the day of the funeral, the wider family all commented on how complete the service was.
    I would like to say that I look forward to using Rowlands again but maybe that’s not appropriate / not too soon…!

  • 5 Nicky Valmas 18th Aug 2023

  • 5 Lesley Harwood 15th Jul 2023

    I would like to thank the team at Rowland's Funeral Services, Petersfield for their kindness and attention to detail. They guided me through the process of planning my mother's funeral and assisted to make it all run smoothly on the day.
    I would also like to thank Martin Brown who conducted the service - he met with me prior to the service in order to get to know me and also to talk about mum and her life. He assisted me in choosing music and advised re order of service. On the day he led a personalised and warm celebration of my mother's life. Thank you to the whole team - you made a difficult time easier.

    Charlotte was incredibly helpful and supportive in guiding us through arranging my mothers funeral. Her kind and empathic nature made the process a lot easier to manage because she was always so willing to do what ever she could to ease the burden at a difficult time. The service was second to none and I thoroughly recommend Rowland Funeral Services.

    Owen has particularly gone out of his way to make a very difficult time much easier for me, and has been personally caring and very professional at all times. 
    Thank you all very much xx

  • 5 Richard Knight 29th May 2023

    Everyone at Rowlands has been kind and supportive and Owen did a great job from start to finish. It was made very easy and that was what was needed.

    I feel very happy about recommending them.

  • 5 Mark Attree 15th May 2023

    Losing a loved one is a very difficult time, and having to plan their funeral can add to the emotional strain. 

    However, Rowland’s made the whole ‘process’ extremely easy. 

    Rowland’s are caring without being emotionally over the top. The are professional throughout.

    They cared for my mother throughout. One particular moment struck out above all. I wanted to visit my mum before her funeral. Mum was laying in one of their chapels. The funeral director took me to the chapel, but before entering the chapel, the funeral director knocked on the door. How lovely and respectful.

    I decided to use their room to hold the service, again this was faultless. Everything planned from service sheets, music, and flowers. 

    Rowland’s have a small parking area which we used on the day of the service. As we approached by car, a member of staff was waiting for us at the gate. Again, what a lovely touch.

    I have so much praise. If one can use the term ‘lovely’ for a funeral, then I am happy to say Rowland’s gave my mother a lovely and special day.
