Excellent care and attention to detail.  Worked close with the family so we could take part in the proceedings as the family wanted.  Nothing was too much trouble. 

Pauline Bott 8th Jan 2022

We could not have wished for better service by Richard and his team. They made the whole experience much more bearable and easy to negotiate for which I thank them. Only one very small thing that I would like to mention -I don't think its necessary to have Rosedale's name advertised on the donation box for mourners at the crematorium. Once again many thanks for the personal, professional and faultless service. Wendy Muncila

Margaret Ward 7th Jan 2022

Thank you to everyone involved - you are the best.

  • 5 David and Jodie Hockaday 2nd Dec 2021

    Thankfully I had no previous experience of organising a funeral, but it did mean that I had no idea what to expect, what needed to be organised or how it worked. As the anxiety kicked in of what I needed to do, thankfully Rosedale came to our rescue. Right from our very first meeting they were nothing but courteous, professional and respectful. But beyond that, they cared, not just about the funeral, but us as a family. Rosedales made the most difficult of times much more bearable and above all made the funeral itself, beautiful. On several occasions we were happily surprised at their attention to detail and how they went above and beyond on several occasions. When the sad time arises for their services again, I shall have no hesitation in instructing Rosedale. Thank you for making our sons funeral so beautiful as it made saying goodbye just a little bit easier.

    Dear David and Jodie, many thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, it is much appreciated and will be passed to all involved. Best wishes and kind Regards, Faith - Rosedale Funeral Home.
  • 5 Joy Dawson 2nd Dec 2021

    We honestly cannot fault the way my Fathers funeral was dealt with by Rosedale Funeral Home, we were treated with kindness and compassion from our first contact with them up to and including the day of the funeral. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they went over and above to accommodate our wishes. The funeral itself was carried out with the upmost dignity and I would recommend them to anyone.

  • 5 John Simmons 28th Jul 2021

    I found the arrangements made by Christian to be of the highest professional standard and it helped to make a very difficult time easier. Due to the fact that Karen was given such a genuinely caring service for us to say goodbye , a friend who lost her Mother shortly after our funeral, contacted your Wymondham funeral home to ask them to assist her. Thank you all so very much. John Simmons

    Rachel Allen replied
    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a wonderful review John, we really appreciate it. I am glad that we were able to look after you and give Karen the service she deserved & that now we are able to assist your friend in the same way. I will be sure to pass your kind words on to Christian. Thanks again, kind regards Rachel, Rosedale Funeral Home

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.

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.
