I can’t thank Rory enough. He has been so kind and helpful with arranging all the details for John’s service. He has also been a great link between the Rector of the Minster and myself and ensuring everything ran smoothly.

  • 5 John Spatchet 27th Apr 2021

    The service received was both highly professional and friendly. The funeral was conducted with reverence but yet not pompous or unduly solemn. We particularly liked the use of blue suits and silver vehicles. We have always had high regard for the company and current experience underlined why.

    From first contact to the cremation the service was seamless.  Rory was very professional, he has a lovely manner and made me feel that he was holding my hand throughout the whole process.  I would happily recommend them.

  • 5 Robert Hucklesby 24th Mar 2021

    Very pleased with how things were coordinated. Rory looked after us every step of the way - offering good suggestions but never imposing. We like O'Hara because it feels like their family acts as our family. They set the right balance between professionalism and natural warmth. O'Hara have been there for us on three separate occasions and we know that we don't have to worry about a thing.

  • 5 Geoff Ashton 4th Mar 2021

    On behalf of Joan’s family and friends, we would like to pass on our sincerest thanks to all the members of the O’Hara’s team. Given the current restrictions on such gatherings, we were very pleased to have an appropriate service to mark her passing, with a very fitting selection of words and music. The visual tribute was particularly well produced, as was the order of service. The addition of the webcast was also much appreciated by those unable or too concerned to be present. Rory’s guidance and support throughout enabled us to complete all the arrangements in a timely and considered manner, for which we were especially grateful. Please be assured that you exceeded our expectations in such difficult circumstances. Thank you all. Sincerely yours, Geoff Ashton and family

    Having used O’Haras twice before since 2016 I knew that there was only one choice for my husband’s funeral.
