Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

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.

Excellent support from start to finish by this friendly family firm.  The funeral could not have gone any better and they looked after all the small details making it a perfect and fitting day for our mum. Thanks to all the team and particularly Anthony who helped us through the process and day.

Everyone at Nicholas O'Hara have been so professional, kind and sensitive throughout. They have helped to ensure that this very difficult time has been handled down to the smallest detail and helped to provide a very special send off for my dad.

The service provided by Jon and the O’Hara team was so friendly and professional - it made the whole process so much easier to cope with.

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.
