  • 5 Nikki Shirley 10th Sep 2019

    Angelia & David have both been very supportive and helpful with guiding us through the whole funeral process for my father. They went out of their way to source and edit the music we requested. They were friendly and remained totally respectful and they ensured total attention to each detail for the day, sourcing Grace as the Celebrant and order of service. The funeral went very well. My mother and I would highly recommend them. Thank you for making such a sad occasion stress free.

  • 5 Jean Long 6th Sep 2019

    This is the third time as a family we have used Rowland Brothers in the last 2 and half years after losing my nan, my grandad and most recently my father. We have always been treated with respect and compassion from the staff at their New Addington branch. Angelina has been brilliant in helping us with the planning. She recommended us a minister Alan Vance who conducted my dads service. We cannot thank him enough for the amazing service he conducted. He made what was an extremely difficult time for our family so much easier thanks to his heartfelt delivery, his warmth and also his humour. On the day of my dads funeral the cars arrived on time as they dad previously with my nans and grandads. The drivers were polite and professional. I cannot recall the name of the gentleman ( possibly Scott) who led the car but he ran the day perfectly with almost military like precision whilst keeping us as a family informed of what was happening. I'd like to thank Rowland Brothers for their service and the personal touch they give to families at such a difficult time.

    The service we received from New Addington Rowlands was excellent, they were so helpful, friendly and professional. It was the first time that we had to arrange a funeral and we were completely lost as to what we needed to do. They had our arrangements sorted really quickly and gave us lots of help and advice all the way.

    Rowland bros were very professional in their approach,and their experience in this matter at a very difficult time was very much appreciated.

  • 5 Monica Cargill 11th Mar 2018

    Expectional to all levels of * Customer Services * prestige at it's finest. Moments spent during the process of making arrangements with both David and Angela developed a unique relationship over a period of time striving through the pitfalls of administration paperworks required and contending with the waves of emotions can honestly say that I have built and now have affirmed friendships for the rest of my life. Despite the ethics of being a business this was never ever experienced from the start of the chapter until the end as to the warmth and love surmounted far and beyond any of my own expectations. My dear Father Mr Lloyd Evans who had sadly departed this earth on the 28th January 2018, I know deep within spiritually was honoured to the supreme when laid to rest in peace with such diginty as he was conveyed by horse & carriage illuminated the journey with onlookers paying their last respects. The horses Mango & Jack such magnificent gentile creatures showed compassion and vibrancy of honouring my Father too felt that the treat of carrots was not enough to thank them. I now have a different view point regarding death it's not to be swept to oneside but to deal with the eventualities that happens to us all will now cater to those needs with planning with my partner and I funeral plans with Rowland Brothers Thank you simply not enough or sum up or give justice for David & Angela with all staff members behind the scene and outside agencies that were magical throughout Sincerest regards Miss Debra Evans

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.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
