The Rowlands have been serving North Augusta and the surrounding area for more than thirty years. In 1991, after finishing his commitment to a large corporate funeral service, Johnny Rowland, along with his wife, Miriam, began construction of Rowland Funeral Home in North Augusta. This privately owned firm enabled them to give the community the personal attention and compassion they deserved.
In 1996 the support of the community gave the Rowlands the opportunity to begin building a larger and more convenient facility. The new 12,000 square foot facility on Martintown Road opened in 1997. Upon the opening of the new facility, Rowland Funeral Home was invited to join the Selected Independent Funeral Homes Association. Membership is by invitation only, and is reserved for the most highly regarded funeral homes in the nation.
In 2017, the Rowlands were proud to turn over operations to their daughter and son-in-law, Miriam and Michael Ford. The name was changed to Rowland-Ford Funeral Home, and the tradition of service and compassion continues.
