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.

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.

Thoughtful, caring, understanding, attention to detail. During an incredibly difficult time they were always available to support, organise and reassure which takes a weight off your mind.

  • 5 Sharon Morris 6th Sep 2020

    We cannot recommend Nicholas O’Hara Funeral Directors enough.  Throughout the whole experience we were treated with respect and in such a caring way. It was so reassuring to always feel we were in a safe pair of hands.  Everything was handled with such decorum and attention to detail. My family and I are so grateful to Rory, Chris, Nicky and team for helping to give Dad such a splendid send off.

  • 5 Ray & Jenny West 31st Aug 2020

    Anthony, Chris and team were professional, kind and ensured the whole process from start to finish was in accordance with our wishes and ran smoothly.  I have no hesitation in recommending them, we are fortunate in East Dorset to have their services.  Thank you

  • 5 Warwick and Meg HOWE 23rd Jul 2020

    We were very impressed with the friendly yet professional attitude of everyone at the company including Neil the Celebrant. We had already used O'Hara's for Joyce's husband Peter three years ago and it was lovely to have the consistency. No question was too much trouble and responses were very quick and thorough which is important at difficult times. So thank you very much to Rory and his team for all of their help and advice. Warwick and Meg ps - on a lighter note Meg was really impressed the Silver Hearse!!

  • 5 Tristan McMillan 30th Jun 2020

    Chris and Nicky were both excellent at helping us through what is a terrible time.  Chris organised everything with ease and the funeral ran perfectly.  When we needed a personal item returning within an hour he was able to accommodate immediately and get it to us. I submitted photos and music for the funeral late, and he was still able to get it sorted with the crematorium audio visual company.  Most importantly the chaps that came to collect my Dad were super kind and respectful on that terrible day.  We have used them twice now and in short I’d definitely recommend this funeral director.  

  • 5 Sam & Tony Browne 13th Jun 2020

    No hesitation in recommending this company.  They bring an exceptional service, support and kindness at a difficult time.

  • 5 Sandra Waterman 19th May 2020

    Our utmost gratitude to Anthony and his family from receiving the initial phone call to the final arrangement's at the end of the Crematorium Service for dear Mum last Thursday. Excellent professional service second to none, so caring, with genuine kindness and compassion shown throughout, nothing was too much trouble.

    The O’Hara’s provided an excellent service throughout the process. Made it extremely easy to arrange.

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.

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.
