The actual funeral on the 7th April, was very well conducted. Thank you Some of our earlier negotiations, especially with the printers, seemed unnecessarily difficult. Perhaps any minor shortcomings were due to the coronovius lockdown we were experiencing.

Ross Mellon 30th Jan 2020

Words wouldn’t do justice of the love and care shown for myself and my family at the most fragile and difficult time. Everything seemed personal and the communication was flawless. Thank you isn’t enough but it’s a start.

    We were very happy with all the services given by Rowland Brothers. We used them for our father's funeral as well as our mother's and on each occasion they have been very professional but also friendly, helpful and calm and reassuring. We would recommend them to others.

    We could not be more pleased with our choice of Rowland Brothers. At a difficult time Sophie in the Purley office, highly professional and experienced took us through the options. After that Rowland took care of everything for our family. Very happy to recommend.

    Thank you for a very detailed and efficient service. 

  • 5 Paul Newland 30th Apr 2019

    Always friendly and helpful when we were organising the funeral, with plenty of ideas and suggestions to assist in our planning when needed. Efficient turn around of printed materials (invites, orders of service). On the actual day of funeral, we were contated prior to confirm arrangements and could not fault the Rowland Brothers staff who attended the funeral (palbearers / funeral cortege). They were all respectful and well presented.

    As soon as I entered Rowland Brothers I knew I had made the right choice with a family business. Sophie’s calm and compassionate manner helped sooth my distress at having to arrange my sister’s funeral. She listened carefully to the sort of funeral I wanted and had everthing at her fingertips to show me my options without being in the slightest way pushy to pile on extras. When I gave her the name of a recommended humanist for the service she immediately downloaded and printed information about her for me. Likewise when I told her my sister wanted her ashes taken to Malta she presented me with the relevant customs papers. The list of venues for the wake within a reasonable distance of the cremstorium was invaluable- I visited several till I found the perfect bright and airy place we needed. The recommended florist did a beautiful job of the flowers for the casket. Everything was booked that very day with an option to make a final decision on the casket after discussing it with family. Subsequent phone calls were always treated with patience and curtesy. On the day everything was carried out with perfect presision  and attentiveness allowing me to relax in the knowledge that I was in the hands of a truly professional service. I even got advice on the best way to transport the ashes abroad!

    What can I/we say apart from the fact that all the staff connected with our mothers' respective funeral services were superb. So caring and professional and a special Thanks to Sophie Clarke. Mum would have been proud.

  • 5 Anne Seaman 23rd Dec 2017

    From the moment we met with Pippa , Sophie and Rob , we knew that they were the right people to look after our loved one. They kept us informed of everything and were happy to help with advice but not intrusive. We cannot thank them enough for helping us through this sad time.

  • 5 Angela Fulker 3rd Nov 2017

    Sophie and Pippa were wonderful nothing to much trouble ensured the funeral went as smooth as it could. Always quick to answer any query or question. They made the whole process much easier to deal with at such an awful time. Thanks you.

  • 5 John Burgess 27th Oct 2017

    Rowland Bros did everything very well indeed. Beyond that, when I kept modifying the Order of Service, they just got on with it cheerfully and never complained. And, with the printers, they took initiatives that made the result better than I had envisaged.

  • 5 Yvette Hopley 25th Sep 2017

    I have used Rowland Brothers as funeral directors for a number of members of my family. They have always been professional and sympathetic during very difficult times. Nothing was too much trouble and Sophie and all other members of the staff in the weeks leading up to the funeral. It has been helpful knowing that we had the support of Rowland Brothers in laying Brian to rest.

  • 5 Lynda Savigar 15th Sep 2017

    Truly professional from start to finish. Would highly recommend

  • 5 Bill Shayler 8th Sep 2017

  • 5 Bill Burey 20th Aug 2017

    Pippa and her team have been so helpful the whole way and made what was a very sad and difficult time so much easier. The whole team have been professional, caring and ensured that every request and need was taken care of. I would like to say a huge thank you to Pippa and the rest of the team that looked after us

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.
