Couldn’t have asked for a nicer or more caring person than Faith, she made us all feel happy and explained everything we needed to know. Without her I feel the funeral wouldn’t have gone so well

very good

Joan Baker 7th Jan 2022

Excellent service, the office manager Faith was so kind and considerate and made  the whole experience so easy. On the day the pall bearers and head the leader Lee handled everything so smoothly and with the utmost respect to my husband and with such care for the family At such a sad time it is so reassuring to deal with people you can trust I cannot recommend more highly

  • 5 Martin Denson 2nd Dec 2021

    I cannot recommend Faith at the Halesworth branch highly enough......she made it possible for me to get through this time by guiding me gently all the way. She is a very special person/employee. The care and respect that the whole Rosedale team showed, with every aspect of the funeral was exceptional....it felt like each employee had taken a piece of my grief and made the funeral, and arrangements, personal to them. I will forever grateful.

  • 5 Matt Stichbury 11th Oct 2021

    Very sadly, we had cause to organise two funerals in 3 months this year. We wouldn’t have got through the process without Faith and Simba looking after us and helping us navigate this awful task in such a trying time. We can’t recommend Rosedale highly enough. 

    Faith Ames replied
    Dear Matt, Ella and Lola, Thank you for leaving myself, Simba and the whole team this feedback. It was both a privilege and an honour to have you entrust both Dad and Mum's funeral arrangements to us in such a short space of time of each of their passing. May they rest in peace - reunited. Best wishes to you all, Warmest Regards, Faith and Simba - Rosedale Funeral Home.

    From start to finish Rosedale provided an excellent and sympathetic service. Advice was gently given and I never felt I had to rush to make a decision. Faith was so kind and helpful. I would recommend Rosedale without hesitation.

    Thank you Huw for taking the time to leave this lovely feedback for Faith, I will ensure she sees your comments. Kind regards Rachel, Rosedale Funeral Home
  • 4 Cathy Wardale 30th Jul 2021

    Faith and the team on the day, led by James, provided an excellent service. From her initial visit to the house through to the day itself,  I really appreciated Faith’s care, quick response to my emails and willingness to help with whatever I needed. Everything ran smoothly on the day and the  quality of the OOS photos was great.  The only reason I haven’t given  excellent is the unnecessarily protracted exchange re the OOS proof reading edits, which I gather are outsourced.  Once that issue is sorted, I would happily recommend Rosedale. 

    Faith Ames replied
    Dear Cathy and family, many thanks for taking the time to provide such lovely feedback for myself and the team. I will ensure this passed on to all of the team involved with Mum's funeral. I completely take on board your comments re the exchanges with the Order of Service proofs and have fed this back to the company we partner with. Thank you for entrusting Rosedale and myself to look after the arrangements for Mum's funeral. It was a real privilege and I hope you would recommend our services in the future. Best Wishes, Faith

  • 5 Debbie Hughes 10th Jun 2021

    From the start the staff have been caring and helpful.  Really useful suggestions as to how to proceed and careful listening to our own wishes.  Everything proceeded as wished for and we could not have been happier with the service we received, down to the teddy bear for our youngest grandson. Most thoughtful and much appreciated. Many thanks to Faith and all the staff at Rosedales.

  • 5 David Moulton 11th May 2021

    Rosedales to us as a family has truly thought of every step of the process for a family grieving. From the first phone call when our dear mother passed everything was explained in a very caring way. We were at peace knowing our mother was in a place where dignity and respect was foremost until we could lay her to rest. We have made a special friendship with Faith Ames who has supported and helped us put together a beautiful service for our mother and made sure everything was perfect on the day. Rosedales will always have our heartfelt thanks. David and Jo.

    Faith Ames replied
    Dear David, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Your kind comments are very much appreciated and mean a lot to us all, Kind Regards, 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. 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.
