Formerly JW Rose & Son, the business was purchased by the Grassby Funeral Service in 1991 from George Rose of Wyke Regis.

Grassby Funeral Service is a long established family run business with its main office in Dorchester.

George continued to work for the company as funeral director for this branch and was succeeded by Sam Wilding in 2000.

Sam was born and bred on Portland where he still lives today.

He has been involved in the funeral trade since leaving school in 1989 and has achieved full qualifications in the Diploma of Funeral Directing. He is also area manager for Weymouth, which also incorporates Stockting Funeral Service.

Sam is ably assisted by Paul Buddin.

Rose Funeral Service acquired additional premises at 23 Shrubbery Lane, Wyke Regis in 2015. These premises were sensitively converted to include modern offices and an arrangement room. The business has also retained the original premises in Shrubbery Lane which incorporates a Chapel of Rest.

The business maintains strong links with Portland, having a Chapel of Rest at the former Methodist Chapel in Weston Street.

Rose Funeral Service are members of NAFD (National Association of Funeral Directors) and SAIF (National Society of Allied Independent Funeral Directors).
