Rowlands Funeral Service looked after the funeral arrangements for my grandma 30 years ago and my dad very recently and on both occasions they did a fantastic job. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Charlotte Sandy our funeral director, was both caring and compassionate in helping us through a very emotional time and oversaw all the funeral details with very careful attention to detail. Rowlands conducted the funeral with sensitivity and professionalism and we are all very grateful to them for the respect and care they gave to our dad on his final journey.

Rowland's Funeral Service could not have done a better job for my husband's funeral. Marsha was so caring, professional and took care of all the little elements I did not even know I had to decide on. The funeral itself was conducted with dignity and warmth - I could not have asked for a better team to guide me through this difficult time.

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.

    You team steered us through a difficult time with compassion and respect
    Everything went smoothly and they stayed in touch throughout the whole process. I always felt they had time to listen and responded in a very timely way.
    Their respect for my mother throughout was really felt and noticed by us all. Family at the service also commented on how lovely everyone was. The small details mattered to them as much as they did for friends and family
    Thank you all so much

    My funeral director was Marsha and she was a pleasure to deal with - I had quite specific ideas as to how the funeral should be , she reacted efficiently to my requests and was patient and empathetic . The result was a service which both those attending physically and also remotely by watching the webcast were touched and moved by - a wonderful tribute to my husband Peter.

    Thank you to all the staff at Rowlands for their dedicated and caring support during the arranging of my mother's funeral.
    They are a very professional team and very attentive to detail.
    There was a natural and relaxed flow to making the arrangements which took all of the pressure off my shoulders.
    The resulting service was exactly as both I and my mother would have wished.
    With many thanks again and I wish you all well for the future.

  • 5 Tom Hall 5th Mar 2021

    From the moment I made the call I felt confident that my family had made the right choice in Rowlands of Petersfield. They were so reassuring from the start, and the technicalities and legal processes required to recover my mothers body from the hospital where she died were all taken care of. Throughout the planning of the funeral Marsha was always on hand with any help or advice we needed. I always felt in control. Everything needed for the service itself was provided and Marsha and her team were faultless throughout.

  • 5 Brenda Ross 1st Mar 2021

    The service provided by Rowland's was everything that anyone could wish for in such difficult times. The support in providing advice on what to do ensured that we did not have to go searching for who we should contact or inform of my wife's death. Their ability to deal with technical problems involving complex audio visual presentations allowed us to have the pictures and music for the funeral exactly as we wanted. We would recommend them without hesitation.
