All about us

Adela Funeral Homes was established in 1982. It was founded by Patricia Rowden and her daughter, Tina Rowden, who had both worked previously within the profession since the mid 1970’s. 

Patricia was the first female Funeral Director in Eastbourne, and quickly found that the female touch, high level of personal care, and professionalism that they provided was welcomed.

Patricia remained as the Funeral Director until her retirement in 1995, Tina Rowden then moved from her position of Funeral Arranger to her current position of Senior Funeral Director.

Recognised within the community, Tina Rowden was privileged to be asked to continue to serve the community, assisting them in providing a very individual and unique celebration of their loved ones lives.

“Adela Funeral Homes are very proud to have looked after generations of families in the Eastbourne area for over 35 years, and will continue for many years to come.”
