On behalf of all the family I am writing in gratitude for all your help with the passing of Mum.  From the time you were advised, we received your total professional services.  It is always a difficult time when an older parent passes and you met our challenges with grace and charm.

We are extremely grateful for all the services we asked of you, especially David for providing, and leading the celebration of Mum’s life.  We were really pleased as a family for all your team’s efforts, with Lynette helping wherever needed especially with the paperwork, to Maz with her cheerful, but respectful manner.

I am very pleased with the Memorial Book we received and will treasure it, for the my life time, and hope it will be passed on into the family.


" A big thank you to the team at rosewood funeral homes, particularly Maz and David, for helping me arrange a very fitting small family service for my late mother. For someone has has never experienced having to organize a funeral before, the staff were professional,yet warm and welcoming and catered for our specific needs. They answered all questions I had with grace and were fantastic guiding me through each part of the process. I would highly recommend Rosewood Funeral Home to anyone needing to arrange a small family service, mid to large sized funeral or even just to arrange end of life plans."

Dear David and Lynette

I would like to personally thank you again for helping us to create a wonderful tribute to my dear Dad, George.  It has been a pleasure to work together with you to create a beautiful and fitting celebration of Dad’s life.  I look back with a warm smile on my face as I know dad, too, would have been both awed and humbled by this very personalized farewell that epitomized the kind, caring and very loved man that he was.

Your attention to detail ensured this wonderful tribute was everything we wanted it to be- and so much more than it would have been had we not had you to guide us through the options and give invaluable suggestions.

A personally appreciate the way you made me feel nothing was too much trouble Lynette.  It allowed us to have the input we wanted and the guidance to navigate the steep learning curve that otherwise could have overwhelmed us.

Your beautiful chapel and food are superb.  On the day we were able to leave everything in your very capable hands which meant we were able to focus on Dad, family and friends.

Thank you again for being the very special people that you are – with just the right amount of friendliness, caring, professionalism and guidance that allowed us to farewell Dad so beautifully


Dear David and team,

A small token to say thank you for everything you have done to make my difficult tasks easy for me. Your sincere compassion, your help and tender care of Fred and towards me is deeply appreciated. Mere words are inadequate to express the depth of my feelings, I can only say once again - Thank you.


Hi David and staff,

Yesterday I attended the funeral of my uncle, I would just like to compliment you all on the way you helped towards making his final farewell a good memory.  Your premises,  the service, the food, time without pressure to move along say a lot. 
Many thanks
