Very helpful, funeral carried out as planned.  Nothing too much trouble from arranging vicar, orders of service and flowers.  Would definitely recommend

James Burstall 23rd Nov 2022

I cannot speak highly enough of Charlotte, Marsha and the rest of the team. Charlotte was our main contact and really looked after us, helping to resolve all sorts of issues that were well outside her role. Marsha then rearranged her life to accommodate our need for a Saturday funeral. The whole day went perfectly and this was mainly down to the amazing work that they did. Kind, compassionate and efficient - I would heartily recommend them.

I would highly recommend Rowlands. They looked after all the arrangements for my fathers funeral. They were sympathetic, empathetic and totally in tune with with all our needs. A lovely local family business that I would have no problem over recommending.

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 Beverly Avery 21st Nov 2022

    Thank you Marsha and everyone else for all your support, care and compassion shown for our dear Paul and for us as a grieving family. The service you provided was extremely professional but also very caring and we never felt rushed at any point throughout the whole process. Thank you so much from us all.

  • 5 Tina Byrne 31st Oct 2022

    I can not compliment Rowlands enough, their caring sincere attitude, i felt so at ease with the fact dad was in their care i knew he would be well looked after from the initial meeting with Marsha through to the actual service and finding the perfect celebrant for our family i can not express how grateful we all are with their professional service i can not recommend them high enough 

  • 5 Clare Sutton 22nd Oct 2022

    Charlotte was kind and efficient with lots of helpful information that made the process as painless as possible.

  • 5 Terry Newman 2nd Oct 2022

    Thank you for all your help on a really tough day - Very appreciated.

  • 5 Deborah Jordan 25th Sep 2022

    Rowland’s gave superb service from start to finish: Marsha, Charlotte and Owen are a fantastic team. We used the Rowland’s Room for a simple but memorable family get-together.  Marsha gave us access to the room for a couple of hours the day before the funeral, enabling us to arrange it with masses of  flowers and a display of memorable objects to create  a really personal atmosphere.  The entrance to the Rowland room is via a courtyard framed by a collection of quaint old buildings edged with masses of flowering plants, which  provided a very intimate and calming setting. Marsha organised for us to have simple refreshments at the end of our tributes,  further enhancing the feeling of a shared, and very significant, family experience. Highly recommended! 

  • 5 Doreen Lewis 19th Sep 2022

    The compassionate dedicated support I received and the care and dignity shown for my late husband, carried me through and beyond a very emotional time.
    My heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Charlotte and her amazing team.
    Highly recommended.

    Marsha provides a courteous and professional service, allowed us the time required to plan my mothers funeral in a relaxed environment.

  • 5 Guy Warrington 25th Aug 2022

    I have walked past Rowlands so many times over the last 50 years.
    I felt i knew them even though I had not had reason to use them.
    My dear Mother died at home on a Saturday morning and Rowlands came within 3 hours and very respectfully and gently took Mum to their premises.
    I found dealing with Charlotte and Karen to be so gentle and at the same time focused on what needed to be addressed.
    I was overwhelmed by the task of drafting the order of service  and Charlotte showed  me several previous service sheets which really helped.
    Their suggestion of a celebrant was also excellent. 
    Charlotte was always available and very responsive to any questions i raised.
    I loved the way they presented Mum in her beautiful coffin  / she looked so elegant just as in life.
    I found it very comforting to be able to see Mum in her private room at any time and any day of the week.
    This is a wonderful  facility.
    The day of mum’s funeral was beautifully organised and ran well including my sons being pall bearers / all was ‘no problem ‘ for Charlotte and her team.
    Thank you for all you did for mum and myself. 

  • 5 Andrew Staff 18th Aug 2022

    I would highly recommend Rowlands . Marsha and Charlotte are both lovey people . In such sad times they made the whole process simple and painless, and I can’t thank them enough for everything they did. I genuinely didn’t have to worry about a thing on the day, church and crematorium sorted, Order of service well presented and lovely , cars arrived on time and drivers very helpful and friendly .   If you want a highly professional but friendly service look no further than Rowlands .
