The team at Rowlands made a very difficult day bearable by their effortless organising. Charlotte in particular was brilliant. 

Roseanne Macaulay 12th 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.

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.

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.

    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 Becky Wilkins 21st Mar 2021

    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.

  • 5 Blanaid Colley 18th Mar 2021

    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.

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

  • 5 Linda Li-Davies 12th Mar 2021

    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

    Rowlands funeral services dealt with us all very sympathetically. We could see Chris when we wanted to because he had his own room. Everything was taken care of for us down to the smallest detail. A special thank you to Marsha and Owen for their compassion in this very difficult situation

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.
