    Having had no experience of arranging a funeral ,I am so glad I chose your service Every wish of not only myself but my family was carried out by Chris and his receptionist at Verwood As a result we achieved a 'good send off ' as a consolation at a very sad time

    The death of my dearly loved husband, Malcolm, has been the hardest thing I have ever had to face. Right from the start, Anthony and the team at O'Hara's provided amazing support to me and the whole family. With their help, we were able to give Malcolm the wonderful send off that he so deserved. Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart. I would not hesitate to recommend O'Hara's to anyone who has lost a loved one.

    I have only the highest praise for Nick, Chris, Anthony and all the staff, their understanding and sensitivity helped me to cope with the very sad and traumatic circumstances of the death of my husband. At such a terrible time when I felt unable to make decisions I was gently guided by their expertise and felt very supported by the obvious empathy shown by all involved. Every aspect of the funeral was carried out with the highest degree of professionalism and respect and, most importantly, with a real sense of caring for myself and our family. Thank you.

    Nicholas and his team have been fantastic in making a sad and upsetting time for us completely stress free, they could not have been anymore flexible, accommodating and friendly and sensitive and respectful of our particular religious needs and requirements. I would highly recommend their services, a fantastic family run business which is committed to providing a personal and caring approach in their service.

    Nicholas o'Hara funeral directors handled my dad's funeral very well. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very helpful throughout a difficult time for our family. All staff were lovely, especially Rory who was our primary contact throughout the process. He was very caring and respectful and we could not have asked for anyone better. 

  • 5 Hazel Deamer 19th Jun 2017

    We cannot recommend Nicholas O'Hara highly enough during such a difficult time. A thank you to Philip Evans who guided us through with the utmost care, compassion, professionalism and respect. We were recommended to Neil McCain, Celebrant, who spent time with us to get to know my husband and who wrote and delivered a wonderful tribute, which was also commented on by family and friends.

    This is the second time we have used Nicholas O'Hara this year and find them very helpful and understanding,supplying excellent service throughout.

  • 5 Tessa Forgan 29th May 2017

    We didn’t know where to start with selecting a Funeral Director, as we are relatively new to the area, so we began by asking for recommendations. The unequivocal response was O’Haras, and we could very soon see why. From the moment Anthony arrived at the house to discuss the process, we knew he would handle everything perfectly, and he and his team didn’t disappoint. They were professional, courteous and very efficient. Nothing was too much trouble, and we appreciated the understated good humour and sensitivity shown at each stage. We also know that our mother would have loved the stylish silver limousines! Thank you, everyone. We will not hesitate to recommend you in the highest terms to anyone in future. Kit, Stephen, Tessa and Claire Bartlett.

    The service we received was excellent. Helping a widely spread family to arrange a successful send off was complicated and takes time, and they gave us all that was needed, while being totally professional and discreet.

    My thanks to Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors Ltd. for the excellent arrangements for my Husband's Funeral which were mainly due to Philip Evans' meticulous planning and good communication. Also, thanks to Chris. Antell for arranging and presenting the Service at Bournemouth Crematoria which was praised by Family and friends.
