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 Phillip Moss 5th Dec 2021

    My father had previously chosen Rowlands and Marsha and her team had already looked after my mum with style, grace and sensitivity. 
    All of those qualities were present again when looking after my father. 
    It’s always a sad time when faced with the passing of a loved one but Marsha was fantastic in all aspects and made the occasion as bearable as could be. 
    Thank you. 

  • 5 Grahame Rankin 11th Nov 2021

    Rowlands Funeral Service were very professional and compassionate and I would recommend them very highly.

  • 5 Becky Martin 8th Nov 2021

    Charlotte was very helpful and kind. She was extremely professional on the day of the service. Thank you 

  • 5 Paul Rogers 1st Nov 2021

    Thank you so much for guiding and supporting us through this difficult time. When there is so much to arrange, it was reassuring to know that Mum's funeral service was in good hands.

  • 5 Jeffrey Spong 7th Oct 2021

    From the moment I called them in the early hours following the death until the final internment, everything was perfect. Marsha was efficient and kind and nothing was too much trouble. I cannot fault her and her team.

  • 5 Sarah Mitchell 28th Sep 2021

    Outstanding and a beautiful service. Marsha was with us every step of the way on arrangements and what we needed to do. It was anything but a sad funeral. The service was beautiful and everything had been taken care of for us so we could relax on the day of the service. My dad would have been very proud. Thank you Marsha.

  • 5 David Harvey 11th Sep 2021

    Following the passing of our Dad, my brother and I were just so pleased with the service provided by Charlotte at Rowland's.  At such difficult time, she made things very easy and comfortable for us.  So very easy to deal with and eased the burden. Our Mum was very [leased with everything too.  100% recommend .   

  • 5 Jo Humphreys-Davies 6th Sep 2021

    Charlotte was thoughtful, kind and did everything she could to make the funeral stress-free and as beautiful as my mum would have wanted it to be.

  • 5 Nicola Wright 31st Aug 2021

    We had a bespoke funeral for my husband. Owen was absolutely amazing helping us with all the arrangements, as it was not the usual type of send off. He made sure and helped us get everything we wanted to do for my husband in place for the day. He met with us out of hours, to help my children and myself with are grieving process. Even my husbands dog was allowed to go to the chapel of rest, to help him. I can't thank the team at Rowlands enough for all there help and I would recommend them to anyone. I would give them 10 stars.

  • 5 Ian Lucas 23rd Aug 2021

  • 5 David Lovell 16th Aug 2021

    Faultless, what can I say apart from the my mothers comment “ she didn’t even know they were there”
    Think this says it all
    Thank you Marsha, Owen and Martin and everyone associated with the arrangements.

  • 5 Sally McKenzie 15th Aug 2021

    Couldn't have asked for a better service from Rowlands. They were supremely helpful and courteous at all times. Nothing was too much trouble or outside their remit. Made everything much more bearable at such a difficult time and I'll always be grateful.

  • 5 Tracy Burton 18th Jul 2021

    Rowlands have been fantastic from start to finish. So helpful, kind and understanding. A special thank you must go to Charlotte for making everything so seamless and straight forward. The day was just as we hoped it would be, the best send off for Mum. Thank you. 

  • 5 Lesley Keevil 12th Jul 2021

    At a very difficult time for me Rowlands handled everything very professionally and made it relatively easy for me.
    Very good service. I couldn’t have asked for better.

  • 5 STEWART LANEY 25th May 2021

    I had no idea about arranging the funeral and Marsha and her team at Rowlands handled everything in detail with perfection. Nothing was too much trouble. The service went just as Charlie would have wanted. They kept in touch and me informed every step of the way. MAGNIFICENT.

  • 5 Karen Dolby 29th Mar 2021

    Rowlands provided an excellent, thoughtful service throughout. They supplied orders of service as well as flowers, kept us informed and generally took the strain and worry out of the whole process. On the day of the funeral, Marsha Vincent in particular was wonderful, going above and beyond what we expected to ensure everything was as we would want.

  • 5 Paul Hutchins 28th Mar 2021

    Everything was done to a professional standard and the day went according to plan, and couldn't fault anything. Nothing was too much trouble neither.
