Meet the team

We are very proud of our staff and they tell us they are proud to work for Rosedale.  Our Funeral Directors have more than a hundred years of experience between them. 

As well as the usual staff you would expect to see in a funeral home, we also employ two CRUSE trained bereavement counsellors, a funeral celebrant who is highly experienced in leading funeral services; and a self-trained expert in bereavement benefits and funeral grants. 

We offer both male and female Funeral Directors and if you would prefer your loved one to be dressed and cared for by either a male or a female, this would be possible – you only need to ask.

Our team of Chauffeur/Bearers set standards for funerals that are second to none.  They come from varied backgrounds and include a driving instructor, will writer, ex forces, ex emergency services to name a few.  All share the common aims to ensure that the deceased are treated with dignity and respect at all times and that each funeral runs smoothly and with the utmost attention to the wishes of the family.
