We are the only independent, family-owned funeral service in Petersfield. Since 1934, three generations of our family have provided a continuous service to the community. Being independent truly enables us to offer a more personal and caring service to the community.
Three generations of continual service to the community. We understand that the both wishes of your loved one and the emotions of the bereaved must be addressed with dignity and with sympathy.
No other local funeral service can provide the complete service under one roof. Located in the centre of Petersfield, close proximity to all amenities, including parking, and the towns Registrars Office.
We can provide a variety of vehicles to convey your loved one on their final journey; from Horse Drawn Funerals through to classic VW Camper Vans. Whatever you require, just let us know.
"Please accept my heartfelt thanks and sincere gratitude for the professional, dignified and caring service I have received in respect of the funeral arrangement for my dear wife and for the help you have given me at this very difficult time. From the first time I contacted you, you have been a credit to your profession."
“A big thank you to everyone at Rowland’s for making our father’s final farewell such a beautiful occasion. Your care and attention to every detail made a difficult time so much easier. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.”
“I would like to thank you all at Rowland’s for the sympathetic and dignified service you carried out on behalf of my mother. At such a difficult time for the family we felt confident that all arrangements could be safely left in your hands. Thank you for organising everything so smoothly. On behalf of my father, brother and myself, thank you.”
"It was a pleasure to deal with your company who showed real compassion and professionalism from the time I first contacted you until the day itself. It made my life so much easier as I felt rather remote from Hampshire."
“Once again, can I thank both you and Marsha for everything you did to ensure that the arrangements for my husband’s funeral were handled in such a professional and dignified way. It was pure instinct that drew me towards Rowland’s, that instinct proved so right.”
“We would like to express our sincere thanks for the compassion and professionalism you showed whilst our son was in you care. We were treated sympathetically at all times and our son was treated with great care and dignity. The proceedings on the day of the funeral went very smoothly, for which we are very grateful.”
“I would like to thank you very much for arranging and conducting my mother’s funeral. We all appreciated how well everything went, despite us living so far away. The funeral was carried out in a very conscientious and dignified way and we are very grateful to you for making all the necessary arrangements.”
“You have always allowed my brother and I to feel in control – we never felt pressurised into accepting something we were not comfortable with.”
“My family and I would like to say a big thank you for such wonderful service during our difficult time. We feel that you went above and beyond your duty as a funeral director and we couldn’t have asked for a more fitting send off for my husband.”
“Your professionalism and kindness certainly made a very difficult situation much easier to bear. This was obviously a very difficult time for us as a family, however, you personalised the situation and dealt with every detail beautifully.”
“Many thanks, the flowers were absolutely beautiful. I know Marsha told me the flowers were lovely-when I saw them, they were indeed stunning and expertly done! Also to Gill for the catering-it was just perfect. I did appreciate too the access to the chapel of rest, it is a lovely facility to have. You both gave me great confidence that everything would be taken care of, and properly and efficiently, which indeed it was! Thank you for that.”
“Thank you for the sympathetic and professional way in which you managed my father’s funeral. A fitting tribute to an old soldier”.
Arranging a funeral may well be the last thing you do for a loved one. At Rowland’s we understand the importance of getting everything just the way they would have wished.
