Violet Allen 24th Apr 2021

Thank you Chris and the whole team at O'Hara for your care, kindness and thoughtfulness - you treated us like family and nothing was too much trouble for you. We cannot thank you all enough.

John Knox 22nd Apr 2021

I want to express my personal thanks to you and also the thanks of Philip and Helen and the rest of the family for your tremendous support and care through the whole time in the past few weeks. Despite the various ' challenges' of traffic and technology, you maintained an air of calmness and support throughout. Also the way Valerie had been prepared for our viewing on Thursday was such a blessing, and enabled us to eliminate the picture that we had in our minds from, especially, the last 9 days of her suffering. Thank you for your support and excellent service. John Knox

  • 5 Alison Brown 26th Jan 2021

    Helped make a very difficult time go extremely smoothly. Very professional, compassionate and understanding team. I can’t thank them enough. 

  • 5 Mandy Cooper 27th Dec 2020

    From our initial contact we received supportive and discrete advice which has helped us make informed decisions regarding my fathers funeral. It was difficult as we had not discussed specific details and also due to Covid restrictions however we have received positive feedback especially from those not physically at the service that they felt involved and the service reflected Dads personality. Thank you

  • 5 Duncan Steele 4th Dec 2020

    Anthony was both courteous and professional, with just the right touch of humour and warmth at a difficult time. Highly recommended.

  • 5 Ruth Norwood 25th Nov 2020

    Nicholas O'Hara looked after us for my dad's funeral in 2018 and I had no hesitation in asking them again last month when my dear mum passed away. From the moment you call them they are by your side guiding you gently through all that has to be dealt with. They are kind, thoughtful and understanding, supporting you every step of the way at what is such a sad and difficult time. Their dignity and professionalism on the day of my mum's service ensured everything ran smoothly and we could not have asked for a more moving and fitting farewell. Thank you to everyone at Nicholas O'Hara.

  • 5 Heather Rees 24th Nov 2020

    When you lose someone very close to have such wonderful support from Nick O’Hara himself and all his staff to help you with all the decisions you need to make at a difficult time this is so much appreciated. Nick himself is so very caring and supportive, keeping in touch along the way and also his staff do everything to help and make things easier for you. I couldn’t wish for a better company to deal with as they provide an excellent service in every way. My heartfelt thanks to all.

  • 5 Lionel Buswell 16th Nov 2020

  • 5 Jane Fox 18th Sep 2020

    Excellent, personalised service through all aspects of planning and conducting the funeral, several of the mourners commented on the professionalism of the team from O’Hara’s and Anthony was again very supportive. I wouldn’t consider using any other funeral service

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
