    I was somewhat disappointment that we weren’t aloud to carry my mother into the crematorium. I did it for my mother-in-law just over 12 months ago with a quick chat with the compnay pull bearers beforehand. We didn’t need any training. 6 of us picked up the coffin and walked her in. No training for H+S which is what I was told the issues was. Can i just say i thought this excuse was total nonsense. I also heard from one of my extended family member who also had a death from the other side of there family and they also had no problem taking the coffin in. I believe you need to review this rule. To expect people to drive nearly 2 hrs for a 15 min H+S chat was not what in wanted to hear.

    Compassionate, caring, professional every step of the way. Nothing too much trouble at a time when their wonderful support is of such value. I cannot praise O'Hara's enough - they are indeed a "family who support your family"

    We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Caring, thoughtful staff. Everything was as we asked. For a sad day, it was made much easier and bearable by their understandings. Thank you.

    Exceptionally professional service, very attentive, great management ability - couldn’t recommend more highly. I was really impressed on every level, from the pall bearers and cars, to the music and event management, to the lead director, Chris.

    We could not have asked for more care and consideration, and the attention to detail was amazing. We felt supported and cared for every step of the way and felt we could rely on them totally and cannot thank them enough.

  • 5 Beryl Brown 20th Aug 2019

    You gave myself and family such kindness and care when arranging my Husband Reuben's funeral and I would like to thank Christopher Johnson and Christopher Antell for their sympathetic guidance throughout, including the "Order of Service" conducted at Poole Crematorium - all of which enabled us all to celebrate his life (which he lived to the full) and helped us to look forward to our own despite the huge gap he has left. Again, many thanks to everyone involved. Beryl and Family

    We were very pleased with all aspects of the arrangements both on the day and before.  All members of staff were respectful, friendly and professional with lots of contact to make sure everything was ok.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.  Thank you Nicholas O'Hara.

    NOH dealt with my Father’s funeral with professionalism throughout. My Father had a pre-paid funeral and NOH explained in full detail what was included so that we could add some extras toe see Dad in a proper fashion. Although a sad event, NOH took much of the worry and concern away.

    Thank you to Chris Johnson who guided us through the funeral procedure slowly and clearly explaining everything along the way making it as easy as is possible during this time of remembrance. Thank you also to Chris Antell, Celebrant, who took us through the service, again guiding the family and friends through this difficult day.

    Nicholas and his team were fantastic throughout this difficult time and our family cannot thank them enough for their care and attention.

    I cannot praise Nicolas O’Hara Funeral Directors enough. From our initial visit they were very professional but in a supportive and caring way which continued throughout. Rory Craig was with us from the beginning to the end which felt so personal and he explained the process with myself, my son and daughter-in-law in a compassionate but extremely efficient manner, advising us along the way. I instantly felt in safe hands. He is an extremely personable young man and a credit to the company.  The funeral was carried out exactly as we had discussed and there was perfect attention to detail. I have since received numerous complimentary comments. My family and I would highly recommend Nicolas O’Hara if you want your loved one taken care of in a compassionate, caring, but professional way and to have the stress at this traumatic time taken off your shoulders then O’Hara are perfect for you. We must mention at this point about Rob Hazell, Independent Celebrant. Rob was excellent. On meeting him I was instantly comfortable and we talked casually about my husband’s life.  From these notes he prepared the service and spoke about my dear husband with sensitivity, compassion but also with humour, it was as if he had known him as a friend which made it so personal and everyone captured my husband perfectly. Thank you to everyone.

    Many thanks to all at Nicholas Oharas and especially to Rory for organising everything for me at such a terrible time after loosing my partner of 30 years. Everything ran like clockwork, and with the help of Rob Hazell my partner was given the best send off I could have wished for.

  • 5 Nicola Marsh 22nd Jul 2019

    Nicholas o'Haras guided me through a traumatic time in a professional and compassionate manner. I can not praise Chris enough for putting me at my ease and the help he gave me in planning my mother's funeral. I would not hesitate to recommend the company to anyone in need of an excellent funeral director.

  • 5 Ann McConnell 9th Jul 2019

    On behalf of the McConnell family, I would like to say what a wonderful service O'Hara's provided from the moment we approached them as a family to undertake the arrangements for Pat to the completion of the burial in the local cemetery. I would highly recommend them and thank them for the support and understanding they showed at such a sensitive time. Ann McConnell

  • 5 LesleyAnne Skerman 8th Jul 2019

    Anthony O'Hara guided us through the process from outset in a sensitive and professional manner. The support was invaluable at such a sad time and with Rob Hazell as Celebrant the service was extremely personal to mum. The silver funeral cars made the day seem extra special. Thank you from Ken & Lesley-Anne.
