The funeral Aranger (Sally Loveland) was very pleasant, listened to our needs and was able to provide all the service we needed. On the day of the late Millicent Hall funeral we were given an excellent service with respect and also met all our needs.

    I was impressed by your website hence contacted Rowland Bros and straightaway Carly Baker whom  we met put us at ease and assisted us all the way.  Everything was taken care of   (it is still very raw for me - the wife) however all your staff and then Tony one of your funeral assistants phoned me to check if I had any queries on the morning of the funeral and all of them were just brilliant.  Thank you so very much for all the help and assistance in making the whole experience of arranging a funeral and helping us throughout the process. When one loses someone close and then is faced with the whole frightening and daunting thought of making all the arrangements, together with the grief, you certainly were  fantastic.  Thank you to everyone in your organisation at Whitehorse Road, Croydon, for your help and assistance.

    We are sincerely thankful to the service we received from Roland Brothers in laying to rest our dear departed Mother.  From beginning to end they were on hand to direct us through the process.  I found them to be very accommodating and flexible where chances were needed.  I am particularly grateful to Tony Roland who took time to direct and fulfill our Mother's wishes, she would have been very proud of his excellence and that of his team. Our thanks again.
