Rowlands have been absolutely brilliant, from the very beginning to the end. They have helped and guided us through a rather tricky time, for which we will always be very grateful.

Andy Buckle 24th May 2022

A lovely team to work with. Extremely professional and caring. Brilliant at keeping in touch with the family and all others involved, we are so glad that they were recommended to us. Many thanks for everything Charlotte and Owen for seeing us through this difficult period. Andy Buckle and daughters.

Nicola Lockyer 23rd May 2022

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 Jan Russell 10th May 2022

    I highly recommend Rowlands Funeral Services, literally from the initial enquiry with Karen who was so compassionate and caring, to meeting Charlotte who guided me through everything and to Marsha who ran the service day with her team. They are such a professional, warm, dignified team of people - nothing was too much trouble, we really cannot recommend them highly enough. I would not use anyone else. Thank you so much for giving Mum the best send off.

    Rowland's were so helpful and kind after the passing of our father, and helped to organise everything seamlessly. Charlotte was kind and adaptable throughout, and it really took the burden away from us in a difficult time.

  • 5 Jane-Marie Nixon 6th Feb 2022

    Charlotte at Rowlands was caring and compassionate in the way that she guided us through mum's funeral arrangements and she seamlessly and professionally oversaw proceedings on the day. My dear mum couldn't have been in better hands and we, as a family, are so very grateful to her for sensitively ensuring that our wishes were carried out and that mum had a fitting farewell.

  • 5 Paul Martin 26th Jan 2022

    Rowland’s provided very helpful advice and faultless service. A highly professional and caring company.

  • 5 Vee Burton 20th Jan 2022

    From the start to the finish of this very emotional and difficult time, staff went above and beyond to ensure that all my wishes for my dear Mothers service were met. As my Mother passed away just before Xmas and was not local to us I really felt that I wanted my Mother close by and staff ensured that this happened. I can not express how much comfort this gave me. Dear Marsha was fantastic at liaising with the various people involved and passing on my requests, this allowed me to focus on all the other things that needed addressing. Staff were available and in contact frequently. My Mothers funeral service was just how I had visualized it to be, a celebration of the glamourous and much loved lady. Its the little things that make a difference such as taking the time to pick up a rose that fell from my Mothers coffin as she was taken to her final resting place. Thank you for holding my Mother gently and supporting me along the most difficult journey in my life. It could have been very different. Thank you. So pleased I chose you. V.Hey

  • 5 David Ford 18th Jan 2022

    My Mother and the rest of the family were very pleased by the efforts of Charlotte and the remainder of the Rowland’s team in giving my Father, John Lionel Ford an excellent send off. Thank you.

  • 5 Joy Russell 10th Jan 2022

    I had all the information, help and care I could have wished for to prepare for my mum's funeral. I thought the level of service was exceptional and couldn't have wished for better.
