    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

    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.

    O'Hara Funeral Directors overall were very efficient and considerate with all elements of the funeral preparations and the funeral itself. Rory kept us abreast with updates, support and understanding throughout. He is an excellent ambassador for the company. Thanks 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.

    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

    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.

    The arrangements went very smoothly and the staff were supportive.

  • 5 Rita Redfern 31st May 2020

    Everything was arranged and organised wonderfully. The photos and the streaming allowed people who could not be there to be part of the service.

  • 5 Pamela Galton 22nd May 2020

    I wouldn’t have wanted anybody else to look after Brian  especially in these strange times. An excellent example of compassion and professionalism at all times.

  • 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.

    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 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. Also need to thank Martin Hiles our wonderful Celebrant for his much patience and work in the preparation of delivering a very special and heart warming service we wanted it to be. Thank you to you all for everything at Nicholas O'Hara for making a sad time a memorable day, Sandra, Steve, Sue, Pete, Gary, Kevin and Denise.

    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.
