I would like to thank the whole team for their compassionate support throughout from the moment I engaged the company until after my mum's funeral. They were in constant contact with me, asking if there was anything I needed and gently guiding me through the whole process. A very professional team and conducted in a sensitive way. I truly couldn't have got through this without them. Special thanks to Anthony O'Hara and Chris Antell. Thank you

    I have the highest respect for the way my mother's funeral was dealt with, from start to finish. I cannot thank Anthony enough for his kindness, checking on me, to make sure I was OK, and the respect and dignity that was shown to my late mother. Thank You.

  • 5 Jean Chester 12th Jun 2020

    This is the second time I have used O'Hara . During this difficult time and over the 'lock down' period the funeral had to be sorted mainly by telephone or e mail so it was a great relief and comfort to find they were able to sort everything for me . Nothing was too much trouble. I cannot fault the kindness,sincerity and level of service . I would highly recommend their services

  • 5 John Green 12th Jun 2020

    Philip Evans went that extra mile to ensure Mum's funeral went well from start to finish. Can't thank him enough. Full marks to Nicholas Ohara Funeral Directors.

  • 5 Caroline Thistlethwaite 9th Jun 2020

    O’Hara’s were very efficient, professional and accommodated all our wishes and more. Their recommendation of a celebrant,  Martin Hiles, to conduct the service was excellent too. I would thoroughly recommend Nicholas O’Hara. 

  • 5 Anna Hurst 9th Jun 2020

  • 4 Sue Bird 1st Jun 2020

    The arrangements went very smoothly and the staff were supportive.

  • 5 Richard Davis 25th May 2020

    Difficult times but very good support for the family

  • 5 Steven Gayler 21st May 2020

    I chose O'Hara because I knew the business, having driven past it for so many years. I'm not sure how their prices compare to other funeral directors in the area because I didn't shop around for quotes. Firstly I didn't have time and secondly I don't think I would have done it anyway. Because of the situation with the virus I had an unattended cremation for my mother. From start to finish O'Hara were really kind and considerate. A real pleasure to do business with at such an emotional time.

  • 5 Jan Standing 19th May 2020

    The funeral for my husband Terry was held at Poole Crematorium and was conducted in their normal exemplary professionalism, efficiency, courteous and thoughtfulness way. This was the 3rd funeral that O'Haras have done for my family and even in this unusual surreal situation that we all find ourselves in they are still there for you to answer any questions/queries and also treat you as if you are the only one going through a bereavement. I believe this is a very hard and trying time for them as they are a very hands on company. From Jan and Family thank you very much for the lovely way that the funeral of Terry was handled.

  • 5 Penny Triggs 18th May 2020

    Considerate, compassionate, bespoke, nothing too much trouble. I am so grateful to have had their support during this time in my life where I have felt most vulnerable.

  • 5 Paul Chase 17th May 2020

    We were very comforted with the  sincere and sympathetic manner and approach of Anthony O'Hara, who assisted us remotely in a calm, efficient and caring way in these extraordinarily difficult times. He went well beyond our expectations on several occasions, and we recommend their firm and service without reservation.

  • 5 Lorraine Barnes 15th May 2020

    Professional and caring service We are very impressed with the simple yet dignified service provided by Anthony and his family. When I contacted Anthony, he could not have been more helpful and compassionate. He understood what my mother in law and us wanted and kept me informed at every stage of the arrangements. I cannot thank him enough for the support he and his family provided at this particularly difficult time. If you want a professional and caring service then I would recommend them

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.
