Testimonials

We said goodbye to my mum and brother in seven months. Rosedale dealt with both of them, Richard being in charge of both. I have to say that both experiences, despite being completely different, were equally sensitively handled, with impeccable attention to detail. Every person with whom we had contact, was kind and gentle. A wonderful group of people. Thank you.

Excellent. The family of David Horace James Green would like to thank Rosedale for all there services.

Lucy has been amazing at this very hard time with Mum, caring and thoughtful thank u

What can I say… the beccles branch have gone above and beyond for me. Losing both parents in 6 months. They made a terrible time that little bit easier. Special thanks go to Lucy. Xxx

On behalf of the family I would like to thank Mark and all at Rosedale Attleborough for their kindness and for the dignified way they supported us in arranging Dad’s funeral. It was a great comfort to us to know that we did not have to worry about anything and the arrangements were perfect. We would highly recommend Rosedale we could not have asked for more. The family of Ivor Cattermole.

Rosedale Attleborough handled the funeral of Raymond Wright, and on behalf of all the family i would just like to pass on my thanks for all you did. We felt very comfortable during the arranging process, nothing was too much trouble for you and everything happened just as we had asked. A great service from beginning to end for which we were very grateful. Thanks once more from us all.

I want to thank Lucy at Rosedale (Beccles) for her kindness, compassion and generosity. Although we have not (yet) had occasion to use the services of Rosedale I have been touched by the support that was given to me following a family bereavement a year ago, and via me to a friend who has been recently bereaved. I am also grateful to Anne for being a part of Beccles Quaker ‘end of life’ day – her contribution was invaluable – sensitive, informative and very useful. Another bonus is that Rosedale is signed up to the enhanced Quaker Social Action ‘Fair Funerals Pledge’ – one of the very first in the country to give this commitment.

A huge thank you to mark and everyone at rosedale in both Wymondham and Attleborough. From the moment we contacted you where fantastic every tiny little detail, even the smallest things you where more than happy to help, our odd questions and requests nothing was too much trouble, you enabled us to give dad the amazing send off he deserved. I cannot THANK YOU all enough.

Excellent service. Very helpful and kind for my dad’s interment of ashes at Blo Norton.

Can’t thank the Halesworth staff enough for the help and support they have given my mum while arranging dad’s funeral. Nothing was too much trouble and she was truly touched by the picture given to her. Thank you so much.

Rosedale Funeral directors were asked to take care of the funeral arrangements for my neighbour Miss Ivy Brown today. I cannot praise them highly enough for the care and attention they paid to every last detail. Lucy guided me through some difficult decisions with tact and diplomacy and Richard could not have been more sensitive and helpful when he arrived with the hearse. They made a difficult day go so smoothlyand I felt really looked after. Thank you to Lucy, Richard and all staff who helped on the day.

A first call service whose priority is the care of the deceased and their family. I have been a celebrant working with Rosedale’s for nearly three years and my experience is that the staff always go the extra mile to do what they can for families at probably the worst time in their lives.

A BIG Thank you to Rosedale Funeral home,for there professional and caring Manner to our loss of Mrs Nancy D Cook They handled every detail from start to finish And made our day a lot easier ,due to the way they handled everything Thank you Keith & Jane

Everyone of the staff we dealt with made a very difficult time as easy as possible. We as a family cannot fault the service that we had from start to finish. A very professional and caring Funeral Home and we would not hesitate to use them again. This is the 3rd time and each time has been different but treated in the same professional way. Thank you Rosedale

I would like to thank mark from attleborough for his outstanding support and help through the passing of my dad. He went above and beyond to help make the arrangements easier at this difficult time we really thank you again 💐

Can’t thank Rebekah, Mark and Rhys enough They all showed so much dignity and respect for my brother Matthew. The coffin was absolutely stunning Matthew would of loved it Mark went the extra mile to find the music. And Rhys done an excellent job making Matthew look at peace Massive thank you to you all

Kind, considerate, understanding as you would expect.,. Add quality, timing, and relative economy, patience.and a really comforting slick performance, and a manager who stays with you throughout and you possibly have the perfect funeral directors.

We can not praise Richard and his team enough. Totally professional, compassionate and kind at all times. They made a difficult time so much easier to get through and were so supportive. We were able to relax as Richard guided us through everything on the day of the funeral in his calm reassuring Manner. It went so well that we are left with a sense of peace and good memories of the whole day.

They have been absolutely amazing and supported us as a family but also me as an individual. They couldn’t do enough in every way possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart xxx

Linda Loveday

At 26 I haven’t had to help arrange a funeral previously, so when my lovely Mum passed away last month I was so grateful that Rosedale were there to help guide my family and myself through every step of the daunting process. They took everything out of our hands, making an emotional time less stressful. Particular big thanks to Faith in the Halesworth office, who took the time to swiftly answer every question we had with patience and care. Everyone we had contact with; including the staff where we could visit Mum in Bungay, and the drivers and team on the day were so lovely and thoughtful, I highly recommend!

The staff at the Bungay branch looked after us when my husbands mum passed. We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Excellent. The Rosedale team made a very difficult time a little easier. Organised and efficient whilst being understanding and supportive.

I cannot praise Rosedales enough.The whole staff were so helpful following the death of my wife last year.A highly professional ,caring service ,advising and handling all aspects of the funeral .

Rosedale conducted my late Mother’s funeral in the autumn of 2019. Throughout, the staff were kind, considerate, reliable and efficient. They gave a warm, personal service and were always ready to discuss concerns. They always respected my Mothers dignity and our feelings. We would highly recommend them to any family who have the responsibility of arranging a funeral for a loved one.

Very helpful, friendly and keen to make our service as personal as possible. We met with genuine, thoughtful staff who we felt really cared about what they do – we were treated with kindness and respect throughout the planning and service. Thank you for making a difficult time a little easier.

Myself and my mum would like to say a huge thank you to all at Rosedale. Sadly my father passed away in mid March just as lockdown begun making a difficult time even harder. We chose Rosedale after hearing nothing but good comments about them and wanted a local family company.. were proved very right. They have a wide range of services catering for all budgets and taste and as a family run business do their upmost to make tough and emotional decisions as easy as possible. With going into lockdown we could not visit to discuss in person and had to do everything via phone calls and email, Kath and Janet were an absolute pleasure to deal with and couldn’t do enough to help and make the process as smooth and non stressful as possible. We would like to highly recommend Rosedale and once again thank them so much for their kind support. Jo & Pat.

We used Rosedale Funeral home for my late mothers funeral on 8th June 2020. My family and I would like to say that Ali was absolutely brilliant and very helpful. She guided us through the whole process with kindness and understanding. Everyone from Rosedale done everything they could with compassion and professionalism. We would also like to say a big thank you to Beverley who was our celebrant and conducted a wonderful service

I just wanted to say a massive Thank You to Rosedale Funeral Home in Diss for arranging my Dads funeral today. My very special thanks go to Christian Fairbrother who was just amazing from the word go. He was patient, kind and understanding. He showed compassion all the way through and kept me informed every step of the way and I very much appreciated it. Thank you Christian and to all at Rosedale Funeral Home you gave my dad a lovely send off today. Alison Brown xx

I would just like to say what a wonderful service I received from Rosedale Funeral Home in Diss for my Fathers funeral last week. My special thanks go to Christian Fairbrother for organising it all. I found him kind, compassionate, understanding and very efficient. I was kept informed at every step of the way regarding all the arrangements. On the day Christian and all the staff were dignified, respectful and kind. On what was a very difficult time Rosedale Funeral Home made it all much easier to cope with for myself and my family. Thank you so much. Alison Brown

I cannot praise highly enough all of the staff at Rosedale in Beccles for their guidance and advice whilst arranging my mother’s funeral. Everything was organised seamlessly and it made a very sad and stressful experience much easier than I was anticipating. The attention to detail was very much appreciated , the flower arrangements were beautiful and the service went just exactly as I wanted. The passing of someone you love is a difficult situation to deal with but the care and compassion shown by all the staff was immensely comforting. I am so pleased that Rosedale was my first choice.

Excellent choice of funeral directors. Christian Fairbrother is a credit to this Company as he is very professional, supportive, passionate about his job, and made it easier for my family and I to cope with our loss of my husband. Allen. I would also like to thank Kerry for advising us of procedures and Dave the driver. I would highly recommend Rosedales and thank everyone concerned.

I would recommend Rosedales Funeral Home Diss to everyone I know for the simple reason that from start to finish of the experience my mother,Josephine O’Donnell and myself had,we found the staff,especially Mr Christian Fairbrother,to be wonderfully warm,personable,completely caring and professional.Our small but ‘bespoke’ funeral for mums ex-husband, John (Sean) O’Donnell was carried out beautifully, with such perfect dignity and respect and was second to none.Christian’s attention to detail was impeccably carried out and we couldn’t have wished for more. Thankyou so very much. Rosedales Funeral Home and especially Christian.May you always be proud of your simply wonderful services.Tracey Morgan-Lucas.

I would like to thank Christian, Kerry and all staff concerned for the professional, kind and caring manner whilst looking after my dad Allen after he passed away and for their ongoing kindness and care given to my Mum during this very difficult time. From the moment we called to enquire, through to the cremation service and several days after, they were available at all times to reassure us that they would deal with everything and support us as a family without question. They made the sad passing of my Dad more bearable. I would recommend Rosedale’s in Diss for anyone who feel they cannot deal with such a sad event especially Christian and his team who will support you at all times and provide a personal touch. Additional thank you to Dave the driver for his kindness whilst travelling to and from the Crematorium. Thank you for everything Rosedale’s.

Thank you to all those who helped this afternoon and who previously took care of Grandad. Such kindness, gentle nature and professionalism. Incredibly grateful.

I could not be more grateful for the time and patience shown by Faith at halesworth in arranging dad’s funeral today. Her tenacity in resolving problems and her desire to give us the dignified service dad deserved was truly inspiring. She could not have done more and the whole Rosedale team were all true professionals. I did not expect the level of service we received and will always be grateful. Watching the care they gave to dad was very humbling. He completely deserved it and all I can say is.. thank you Rosedale!

At a time when you need the right help to get you through such a difficult and stressful time, Christian and his team where there for us. Professional yet caring and always available when needed, Rosedale just made the day a lovely and memorable occasion. Definitely 5 stars.

Sadly sooner than expected I lost my dad in May 2019, we visited Rosedale @ Halesworth and meet a wonderful caring lady called faith and her 4 legged companion Simba, who was the most welcoming after such a shocking bereavement. Faith did her upmost to support myself and mum, she gave her everything to make such a sad day so moving and everything we requested she carried out, I can highly recommend Faith, Simba and the Rosedale team

The staff were amazingly helpful and kind when i walked in dazed after the death of my dad, it was the first time i had had to do anything like that and they put me at ease, offered support and reassurance and basically guided me through the whole process, the staff are so professional but also really down to earth and easy to talk to, they helped with advice, books and a teddy for my little boy to help me support him, not only that but they also offer support groups for those grieving after the funeral, all in all they made the most heartbreaking time in my life that little bit more bearable and i cannot thank them enough! Ami Gotts

We were recommended Rosedale Beccles after my mother passed away March 2021. I was so glad that we did as the service was first class. From the very first meeting to the funeral, it was a very smooth and caring service from start to finish. The main staff who looked after us as a family was Toni, Alison, and James who were compassionate,caring and did everything they could to make the whole process as painless and uncomplicated as possible, whilst being there for us and understanding what we were going through. They explained everything and accommodated what we required to make the day memorable for our family. If you are unfortunately in the situation where you need their services we as a family cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you to you all.

Thank you to all the team at Rosedale for the wonderful kindness and support they offered during this difficult time. They always put my dad’s wishes and our needs at the centre so that his funeral was perfect. We had some tight time constraints and I was amazed at how they managed to have everything in place so quickly. It just took the pressure off us. Thank you from all the family.

I have always found the staff at Rosedale Funeral Home to be kind, friendly and compassionate. I am so grateful to Mark at Attleborough for saving the day for me yesterday. I had problems at the Post Office trying to send a small amount of ashes to Langham Glass (for a memorial paperweight). Unfortunately they said they couldn’t accept ashes, even though they were in the appropriate padded envelope provided by Langham. I was very upset as I wasn’t expecting this problem. Mark was so kind, immediately taking control of the situation going out of his way to resolve the issue at the Post Office. (They were wrong as less than 50g is allowed). I don’t know what I would have done without his help.

Thank you to all of the team at Rosedale for their kindness, care, attention to detail and overall, just being wonderful at meeting every one of our needs. Needing the services of a funeral home is never an easy situation but right from the start the whole team were so reassuring, kind and caring. I couldn’t recommend Rosedale enough, our family felt reassured our Mum was always being looked after and cared for respectfully. Again, thank you to the whole team at Rosedale.

Wonderful place. Incredibly helpful and went out of their way to help myself, my brother and my father during a very tough time for us all.

Was shown exceptional care and compassion from Richard Green and everyone at Rosedale in Diss, for the funeral of my grandad in July. Everything was explained and taken care of from start to finish and the personal touches during the service meant so much. We have always used Rosedale Diss and Our family are extremely grateful again for the excellent service given, A big Thank you to all x

Thank you very much for your efforts on our family’s behalf; our little service went off well. I am sure that if the subject should ever come up none of our family will have any hesitation in recommending Rosedale.

Every part of our dear mum’s service exceeded expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Christian Fairbrother and Beverley Bulmer really impressed us. We were, as a family, given a wonderful opportunity to say goodbye to our loved one with so much dignity, thank you.

The absolute care of every member of your staff especially Richard Green. Absolute professional care, warmth and total confidence, totally reassuring, a sad experience made much easier, thank you.

Of all the funerals we have attended in the past, we thought that this one was lovely and tastefully done. Everything was arranged so well, Richard Green was good at explaining the procedure and was so considerate and patient with us all.

The whole service was exceptional, I cannot thank you enough. The whole team at Beccles were fabulous in what was a difficult time.

It was all first class from beginning to end.

Skip’and his team explained everything clearly and were very sympathetic and caring. Lucy Coote was amazing, explaining the process in a clear, descriptive manner with compassion. We would thoroughly recommend Rosedale and the team.

I couldn’t have wished for a better service from a funeral home: sensitive, kind, respectful and professional.

Every aspect was impressive, superb staff and celebrant, heartfelt thanks to you all. Friends & family actually commented that it was the best funeral they’d ever been to! Just continue with your current kindness and professionalism.

Everyone we encountered went out of their way to make sure they met our every need.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the team, you all made it so much easier for my family and I with your kindness, support and utmost professionalism, thank you all sincerely.

The staff could not have been more helpful and respectful, particularly Rhys, an excellent service carried out by well presented staff. I feel the staff at Attleborough went out of their way to meet our needs and I was impressed by their care and consideration.
