I attended the opening of Rowland & Foulkes Funeral Services and was very impressed. Not only with the setup itself and the professionalism of the two directors, but also with the obvious care and commitment that they bring to their business. I can't see why anyone requiring funeral services would go anywhere elseRon Kenway Cheadle

Best of luck in your new venture I’m sure you will succeed in every aspect. John has helped me and my family through 2 of the toughest times after loosing our nan and then 8 years later our grandad John showed compassion and a very caring nature he ensured all our needs were met to make the days as easy as possible.

Outstanding Professional Service'
After suddenly losing my husband, I called Rowland and Foulkes Funeral Service and from the moment I spoke with John and Darren, they provided an outstanding professional service.
They showed empathy and consideration to our requests and went out of their way to ensure all our requests were met to our highest expectations. Nothing was too much trouble, the communication and advise was exceptional and the suggestions of the little extras was a nice personal touch, they arranged for an outline of my husbands car to be engraved in the coffin.
John and Darren made the worst days of our life bearable, we can never thank you enough but we would highly recommend Rowland and Foulkes Funeral Service and will use them again in the future.
Thank you so much.

Our Shinning Star
I would have no hesitation recommending Rowland & Foulkes Funeral Services. We have recently lost a young grandson and the empathy, kindness and care we received was absolutely without doubt amazing. The company took onboard all our wishes to the letter and reduced our anxiety and stress knowing our grandson was in the best possible hands.
Not only did they follow all our wishes they went far beyond our expectations with the most gentle touches to make our funeral much easier to bare.
Rowland & Foulkes managed to reduce our nightmare funeral to something beautiful, that all the family and friends present, were left feeling we would not have changed a thing.
Thank you especially to John and all his team for everything and bless you all.

I would like to thank Darren and John for the excellent service given for my brother Anthony Thomas Williams today, you did him and his family proud, couldn't of asked for a better service. Thank you so much David and Julie xDavid & Julia Longton
If you want to have a professional, kind, wonderful funeral director for your loved one, these are the best people in the business. I have had the misfortune of spending my money elsewhere in the past for a my dearest Sister's funeral, but for my darling Mother, who sadly passed away on the 3rd May, we had Rowland and Foulkes Funeral Services.
I can tell you now that they were amazing. The Chapel of Rest was Beautiful, in fact, the whole place was the best I've ever seen. Clean, smelt fresh, flowers everywhere, just beautiful. Mum was treated with the upmost respect, and was attired beautifully with her little cuddly toy dog that kept her calm through her battle with dementia placed in her arms, she was at peace finally in beautiful surroundings.
As for the funeral, from the arrival of a stunning, modern hearse, gleamingly immaculate in the sunshine, to the last bow given to Mum by their team, i cannot fault it, not one thing.
I was guided through the service by them and felt totally at ease at a time that is naturally very upsetting and stressful.
I would recommend that if you want a fantastic service from a team you can rely on, to help you with the last thing you can do for your loved one, then chose Rowland and Foulkes.
They are so very professional, kind, respectful and supportive in every aspect of their role.
My Mother would have been proud of her very dignified funeral, and I can rest assured that I did the best for her.
Thank you so much John Rowland and all your team. Xxx
Professional service combined with compassion
Just a thank you to John and Darren for their compassion and understanding during the most difficult time, losing my mum.
Their professionalism along with kind words and empathy helped to make a traumatic experience slightly more bearable. I can’t thank you enough.
Lovely service with a professional, caring and empathetic feel from the beginning to the end.
Highly recommend, thank you again for the amazing service.
2 Great Individuals Giving A Great Service During The Saddest Moments.
John and Darren are simply outstanding at what they do. Having lost my father this year i had to organise a funeral from 200 miles away. Well i say i had to, John took control of the situation in a very professional and supportive way. His communication, empathy and consideration was nothing short of amazing.
From help with registering my fathers death, the crematorium, the vicar, the cars, flowers, order of service, music and chapel of rest. Everything was first class.
They made my Fathers funeral, (during Covid) a fitting tribute to him.
I really cannot recommend John and Darren enough.Chris Dixon Southhampton
