  • 5 Sapphira Fernandes 4th Jun 2019

    I cant put into words just how incredible Rouse & Co were from the very start of my father's funeral to the very end. I can honestly say that they have been an instrumental part of giving my father a befitting send off. From the first phone call to taking us back to the church Mark was an incredible calming professional and compassionate presence amongst the sorrow . The entire funeral ran so smoothly there wasn't any time during it that we felt rushed or any sign of confusion. I applaud Mark for helping my family through the most difficult time of our life. Credit must be given where credit is due . A fantastic man . Thank you so much Mark .

    Mark Rouse replied
    Thank you Sapphira

    I would definitely recommend Rouse & Co Independent Funeral Directors for their outstanding staff and services. I was completely out of my depth with the entire process, but I was quickly reassured and guided through the process. At such a stressful time, Mark in particular made me feel very comfortable leaving my loved one in his care. Thank you very much Rouse & Co Independent Funeral Directors for being so kind and patient with my family and I, it has made all the difference!

  • 5 Sandra Walters 10th May 2019

    Rouse & Co Independent funeral directors were introduced to me when my grandmother died at the end of November 2018. I have never planned a funeral before and obviously in your grief everything is extremely daunting.   I looked around and decided to contact three funeral directors.  Rouse & Co was the third.  As soon as I spoke to Mark Rouse my intuition told me go with this guy and I am glad I followed my intuition. From start to finish this gentleman advised, counselled and listened.  He was caring, compassionate, extremely supportive and what he promised he delivered.  Also his prices were excellent. My grandmother looked a million dollars, I was so proud because she always loved to look good.  The service l received for the cost was astonishing.   A truly genuine businessman who has definitely found his calling in life.  I cannot recommenced him high enough.  He went above and beyond !!! When I had spoken to the other funeral directors I felt as if I were just another customer with Mark Rouse it was more of a personal thing and that came across strongly during the conversation with him.  For the service I received and the brilliant cost of the funeral, from the bottom of my heart I cannot thank Mark enough. God bless you Mark  Sandra Walters  Granddaughter of the late Joyce Walters 

    Mark Rouse replied
    Thank you so much Sandra, it was an honour and a pleasure to look after you and your family. Mark

    Very caring compassionate service . We where allowed to call into the chapel of rest to visit my mum when ever we wanted out of normal opening hours. And the prices were very competitive without compromising on quality and services.

  • 5 Ben White 2nd May 2019

    Could not have asked for a better service. Explained everything that was going to happen , if any of the family had any queries was always there to answer any questions. They were so friendly and understanding of our needs and went out of their way to make sure we were happy with everything 

    Mark Rouse replied
    Thanks Ben

    Mark and his team were excellent, professional and courteous... I wouldn’t have been able to get through this process without Mark and would definitely recommend his services to anyone.

  • 5 Virginia Gilmour 30th Apr 2019

    I cannot recommend Rouse & Co. highly enough. Its always a bit difficult to choose a funeral director as most of us have limited experience and tend to stick with names we know, so I thought I was taking a bit of a chance opting for a local independent, but I was so impressed. Mark is both professional and kind and was truly dedicated to providing the best service and making it the best experience for me, and all at a very reasonable cost. In difficult times you want a professional to guide you through the steps and provide a personal service and this is exactly what Mark does. I highly recommend Rouse & Co.

    Mark Rouse replied
    Thank you Virginia
  • 5 Amy Burke 30th Apr 2019

    Thank you Amy
  • 5 Niemesh Amin 30th Apr 2019

    Rouse & Co came recommended from the hospital where my father passed away. Mark made an instant connection with the us and provided a fantastic service to our family.   His priorities truly are the family members and helping you through a difficult time, making any agreed arrangements just happen seamlessly. He often went beyond the call of duty providing a lot of flexibility - cannot express my thanks to him during our difficult time.

    Mark Rouse replied
    Thank you Niemesh

  • 5 Lynne Woodburn 29th Apr 2019

    Dealing with funeral arrangements from 250 miles away seemed a daunting task but as soon as I spoke with Mark I felt confident that it would all be fine. My many emails and phone calls with questions were answered swiftly, efficiently and with great empathy and meeting Mark and his team on the day confirmed that dealing with an independent was far more personal than with a large chain. Thank you Mark for all your help, right up until the ashes were scattered last week.

    Mark Rouse replied
    Thank you Lynne
