Rowland Brothers funeral directors
a helping hand, when you need it most

We want to help you organise a funeral that lets you remember your loved one with dignity and with respect. We believe that the funeral is a vital part of coming to terms with a bereavement and that, accordingly, the day should be as memorable and meaningful as possible.

But we also understand that organising the funeral and dealing with the red-tape can sometimes be distressing. That’s why, at the time you may need it most, we’re here to offer you support, guidance, care and reassurance—every step of the way.

Serving the Croydon community since 1873

Rowland Brothers has helped bereaved families in the Croydon and South London area since 1873. Still very much a family firm, we’re proud to serve clients from every religious denomination and every ethnic group.

We’re members of the National Association of Funeral Directors, The British Institute of Funeral Directors, The National Association of Memorial Masons, a founding member of the National Association for Pre-Paid Funeral Plans and members of the International order of the Golden Rule. Our staff are qualified funeral directors and counsellors.
