    Although Brian's funeral was a quiet, private cremation, we knew exactly what we wanted. Chris Johnson was impeccable in making our wishes come true. He listened carefully to our requests and added little touches that we hadn't even thought about - a picture of a ballroom dancing couple on the plate on his coffin, for example. All the way through the arrangements Chris was quietly respectful and never made us feel rushed or that it was just a job to him. We were also shown around the facilities and were impressed with the company's openness. You only get one chance to arrange a person's funeral and we have absolutely no regrets in choosing Nicholas O'Hara Funeral directors.

    We have had a really excellent service from Nicholas O'Hara. Everything ran very smoothly on the day and all envolved were really helpful. Anthony went out of his way to ensure all the details were just right and has been very supportive at this difficult time. It is more than just a job for the team, they really care and we never felt rushed. In this day and age it is rare that you come across a business that goes above and beyond your expectations. They are a well run, caring, family team and I would certainly recommend their service to anyone in the area.

    The funeral for my dear husband was very dignified and everything was just as perfect as it could be. I know Nick would have been very proud.

    Anthony O’Hara, And all his team at Nicholas O’Hara Funeral Directors Ltd in Wimborne Dorset Looked after every detail of my Partners day , From the First meeting with Anthony i was put at ease in the knowledge that they will look after my partner as if he was one of there own whilst he was in there care. They take the up most pride in what they do and this really shows, From helping choose the Perfect celebrate , Creating a warm not sad environment for Friends and family to vist the chapel of rest in, The most beautiful cars, The gesture of Memory cards and the Details they went to by looking at photos of my loved one before he arrived in there care so they knew who they would be looking after, Emails and Calls just to see how i was doing and always had time for me no matter how busy they where. Its the details like that , That make Nicholas O’Hara Funeral Directors the Best i could ever ask for. Planning a funeral for my loved one was made into a celebration of His life and without the help of Anthony and the Nicholas O’Hara team i could not have made it the day it was, I would recommend them to anyone who has to Plan a funeral to know your loved one is in the best possible care. Thank you

    Very understanding, courteous and helpful at every step of the way. It's never nice to have to go through a situation like planning a funeral but Nicholas O'Hara made it as stress-free and straight-forward as possible.

  • 5 Gillian Ramsay 18th Dec 2017

    The team at Nicholas O'Hara were very helpful and kind throughout the whole process, and the funeral itself was organised efficiently and sensitively. We were really happy with the service they provided, and would certainly recommend them.

    The service for my Father was beautifully led by O'Hara's. We were so looked after at this sad time and everything went so well. People who attended thought Chris Antell was a member of our family as he spoke about my Father during the Eulogy. Thank you Nick from the bottom of my heart for looking after Mum. Also the touch of putting the QE2 on his coffin and plaque was so special. Thank you seems so inadequate, but a big thank you to you and all your staff.

    We could not have asked for a better service from a funeral firm. Everyone we had dealings with were always sympathetic, respectful and kind. Their attention to detail was second to none and we can honestly say they did the family proud from start to finish and gave my dear Dad the best send off we could have wished for. They made what will always be a difficult experience so much easier to deal with. I would highly recommend them

  • 5 Alison Mawhood 8th Dec 2017

    Everyone we dealt with was totally professional and appropriate - easy to relate to; supportive and compassionate without being presumptive or overbearing. Nothing was too much trouble and every aspect was exactly as we hoped.

  • 5 Steve Shearing 2nd Dec 2017

    Excellent service and personal attention with all aspects of the funeral. 

  • 5 Ann Cluett 1st Dec 2017

    They dealt with the day with great respect and kindness to me.

  • 5 Marion Cook 27th Nov 2017

    Through the whole process we were given the best service. Always there to listen, guiding us through and giving such attention to detail.  Special thanks to the pall bearers, who managed a difficult walk to the graveside and for the one who had to deal with a scratch from a bramble! 

  • 5 Dawn Sheppard 24th Nov 2017

  • 5 Carlos Da Silva 15th Nov 2017

    Hi, Carole and I would just like to say thank to you all especially Chris for all his help. As you are aware this was a difficult time for all of us. Chris was particularly helpful for answering all of our questions and telling us on the day what was going to happen and what we had to do. This was really important to us as you only get one chance at it and it all went very well. Thanks again, Carole and Carlos Da Silva

  • 5 Robin Sheehan 13th Nov 2017

    Professional and reassuring in all respects from the first meeting to the last goodbye. Rory was wonderful and really helped in what was a very emotional 2 weeks. His bedside manner was impeccable and he came across as courteous, genuine, friendly and highly respectful. Many thanks.

    I'm going to keep this short and sweet... I could not have had anyone better to guide me along the journey I've had so far since my father's passing... Thank you for everything. Charlotte

    From start to finish this has been a very professional and friendly company.

  • 5 Edna Meadows 6th Nov 2017

    On behalf of all the Family we cannot thank Nicholas O'Hara, West Moors enough. From the first point of contact when Anthony came round to discuss Dad's funeral to speak to my Mum, to speaking to anybody at the office the care and compassion they showed to us all was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They were all extremely friendly, understanding and sensitive to our needs. On the day of the funeral itself they were just so professional and marvellous making sure Dad had a wonderful send off. We would also like to thank Ellie our Celebrant who made sure the Service was exactly what we wanted it to be. Anthony even took the time to call Mum after Dad's Funeral to make she was doing ok, which was a thoughtful gesture. We would highly recommend them. Janet Huett 6th November 2017
