From our first phone call we knew that our Mum was in safe hands. The care taken by Marsha and her whole team was exemplary. Everything was explained and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for making a sad time so special.

Rhona Russell 11th Feb 2023

Rowlands have been wonderful from the first phone call. They were kind, compassionate, supportive and professional. They completely supported me and guided me and were always at the end of the phone. I could not have wished for anything more. I can only praise and thank them.

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 Angela Ray 15th Dec 2022

    At Rowlands the staff are helpful and knowledgeable. They are able to guide you through the formalities when a death has occurred, with compassion and practical advice.

    There are numerous tasks one has to do before the Funeral of 'your loved one can take place'. Rowlands staff are happy to advise you on the correct order of things that need to be done, so that you can obtain the Death Certificate from the relevant GP/Surgery and start looking at a date for a Funeral Service.

    They are willing to guide you through choosing a coffin or a headstone without any pressure.

    They are kind, caring people who can help you achieve the service the 'deceased' has already pre-planned or they can give you guidance so that with their support, you can make the arrangements with your family, at a date and time to suit those mourners who have to travel a distance to attend the Funeral of the departed.

  • 5 Jim Bonney 3rd Dec 2022

    The whole team at Rowlands were superb. For what is a tricky time for anyone they managed the necessary arrangements with efficiency, dignity and the utmost care. They helped us in every conceivable way, with kindness and their inevitable and extensive experience. The whole process from start to finish was excellent in all respects. Thank you all so very much. Jim, lara, Bob and Alison and all of Hilary’s family.  

  • 5 Robin Smith 1st Dec 2022
