Family Funeral Service serving Wyke Regis, Portland and surrounding areas.
J W Rose and sons began trade over 150 years ago as builders and carpenters in Wyke Regis. As with most local construction firms, J W Rose supplied coffins to the community as required. Eventually the business evolved and 'Rose' became established Undertakers. More recently the business was run by the well respected George Rose. He sold the business in 1990 to Grassby and sons of Dorchester but continued to arrange and conduct funerals. In 2000 Sam Wilding, having been in the funeral profession since leaving school, took over the day to day running of the business. Sam lived on Portland from birth. He spent a few years living in Dorchester and Chickerell but returned to 'the Island' in the end! Following this, a Private Chapel of Rest was opened in Weston Street, Portland to serve the needs of the Island. Sam was awarded the National Association of Funeral Directors Diploma in 1993 and has been a Licensed Member of the British Institute of Funeral Directors since 1993 also. Rose Funeral Service uphold a continuing commitment of care to the local community when required.
