Nothing was too much trouble and the service from Nicholas O’Hara’s “team” could not be faulted. The celebrant Neil McCain also did a brilliant job and made us all feel as if he had been Alan’s best friend, so well did he describe him. 

Bryan Foulger 17th May 2021

This is the third time I have needed the services of a funeral director. It is the first time that I have been made to feel that I had a whole family supporting and working with me to make my wife Glyn’s funeral a celebration of her life. The care taken at all stages, the friendliness and considerate approach to make sure that every aspect was of the highest quality was, in its own way, a comfort to experience. I did not need to stress over anything, nothing was too much trouble. They have the ability to know what you as an individual want to feel when you have said goodbye to your love at a funeral. It was warm, familiar and left me believing that had my darling wife been able to witness it she would have said “thank you for caring so much”. Thank you all so much and hopefully, if others read this, they will feel confident that by using your services they are making the right decision for their loved one they have lost.

I cannot recommend Nicholas O’Hara’s highly enough. They have supported me and my family through the funeral planning process with great professionalism, care and compassion. Nothing was too much trouble and I never felt rushed or under pressure to make decisions.  They accommodated all our wishes and made my husband’s funeral everything that we wanted for him.

    Excellent support in the arrangements and took all the stress out of the process. The selected celebrant was a great match and the slideshow in the service was memorable and very well put together. O’Hara’s provides great service, delivered with compassion and thought.

  • 5 Kevin Goodison 7th Mar 2021

    Through tough circumstances of the pandemic, my father's cremation was smoothly guided by these caring, wonderful people. Nothing for Anthony and team was a problem. The celebrant suggested, Martin Hiles, spoke of my father's wonderful life, collated, in my eyes from hectic multi person speaker phone conversations. Thank you all for an excellent service.

  • 5 Sue Manthorpe 3rd Mar 2021

    We would like to thank Anthony and his team for their kind support and guidance when planning our Mothers funeral. Their care and attention to detail was excellent. Everything was completed to a very high standard and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

  • 5 Kay Holloway 1st Mar 2021

    I was completely satisfied with the service. The staff were very professional and sympathetic.The stress was taken off me.In this difficult time with covid everyone did a grand job.

  • 5 Edna Meadows 16th Feb 2021

    O'Hara's were so professional, courteous, polite and kind from the first telephone call we made to them when Mum sadly passed away. We had no hesitation in going with O'Hara's as they had looked after Dad when he passed away 3 years ago. The same care and attention was given to Mum and it was of great comfort that everything would be taken care of during this extremely sad and painful time. Nothing was too much trouble for them and everyone I came into contact with treated me with kindness and respect. Anthony's check up calls on me every few days were so reassuring. On the day of the funeral Anthony and his colleagues were just amazing. They were never intrusive but were there when myself and my Family needed them. Myself and Family would highly recommend O'Hara's.

  • 5 Sally Sadler 13th Feb 2021

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.

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.
