We found them very helpful, accommodating and respectful of our wishes. Should I be in this situation again I would go to Rowlands.

Rowlands Funeral Services are excellent. The staff at Petersfield demonstrated great care, sensitivity and professionalism during a very difficult time. Their ability to include personal touches as well as overall guidance was impressive. For these reasons it is easy for my family to recommend their first-class services.

Roland’s Funeral services were fantastic. From the moment we stepped in, we were welcomed and treated with sympathy and respect. They helped us to make decisions and carefully went through all the options. The service was first class and at times, we felt they had gone above and beyond in their support for us. Thank you so much for helping us remember our loved one in a very special way.

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 Belinda Ellis 28th Apr 2023

    Our whole family was so impressed with how professional and kind everyone at Rowland was. They were absolutely fantastic and handled the whole funeral at the church and the crematorium the next day with complete respect for our Dad. We’re most helpful with changes to the service sheet and kept us informed about everything.
    Very highly recommended…

    5 star rating 😊

  • 5 Diane Brown 7th Apr 2023

    I cannot praise Rowland's enough. From start to finish the care they took in looking after my Dad was second to none. They had done my Mum's funeral only seven weeks previously and I would thoroughly recommend them 100%.

  • 5 Catrine Clay 2nd Apr 2023

    This was beautifully handled, from the start, which included a talk with John before he died, and then myself, and on to the funeral and burial. You listened carefully to what we wanted, and then fulfilled it. Always quiet and respectful. Thank you. Catrine Clay

  • 5 Malcolm Cross 22nd Mar 2023

    I was treated in a very professional and sympathetic manner throughout the whole process. I sincerely thank Owen and Charlotte for their patience and kindness during this difficult period. Everything possible was done to smooth my path and both my relatives and Sue's agreed that we were able to give her the best possible send-off. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

  • 5 Donald Welton 19th Mar 2023

    My whole experience with Rowland’s was excellent. Very friendly and helpful during a very sad time for me. Thank you so much.

  • 5 Patricia Holroyde 17th Mar 2023

    Words can’t begin to express my joy and thankfulness for what Rowlands Funeral Services have helped me create for my Husband's final journey in mid March.

    Every member of staff worked toward interpreting my ideas so completely. The tribute was extraordinary, the whole was handled so professionally, but on a personal level, the memory of the warmth I received and the care shown for my Husband will never fade.

    So please understand how strongly I recommend the Rowlands team to your and your family.

  • 5 Kelly Fox 11th Mar 2023

    Very sadly, I had my Fathers funeral to organise after my Mothers only a year ago. Rowlands are fantastic, they did both, so beautifully with compassion, ease and perfection.
    I couldn’t recommend them more.
    Lovely personal service.
    Thank you Marsha

  • 5 Mike Andrews 5th Mar 2023

    The staff at Rowlands were professional, caring and compassionate and attended to every detail in a calm and considerate way. We much appreciate their care for our mother, and also, some years ago for our father.

  • 5 Debbie Stevens 25th Feb 2023

    So understanding and kind. Charlotte went above and beyond, and I can't thank her enough for making Marks last journey so lovely. Not only did she take care of Mark, but she looked after me and our two daughters throughout.

  • 5 Lorraine Kercher 21st Feb 2023

    Very efficient and extremely helpful. Would highly recommend 

  • 5 Kevin Dodson 18th Feb 2023

    Amazing, caring and professional team. A real pleasure from the first meeting to the end of the service. 

  • 5 Diane Brown 17th Feb 2023

    I have worked in the funeral business for a number of years and latterly as a celebrant and Rowlands were my natural funeral directors of choice when it came to caring for my mother-in-law. Mum's family were very impressed and grateful for the care Rowlands showed to Mum and the professional way in which the funeral was conducted. Particular thanks must go to our main point of contact, Charlotte, although it was a team effort - Marsha, Owen and Karen and the team of bearers were marvellous. Thank you
