    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

    I am most grateful for the excellent service I have received from Nicolas O'Hara in general, and particularly Philip Evans for the wonderful support he has offered me throughout the making, and carrying out of the funeral arrangements for my dear wife Pam.  I had been told previously that Nicolas O'Hara go above and beyond what would normally be expected of an efficient firm of undertakers, and I have no hesitation in confirming that I have found that be a fact.

    The service received from  Nicholas O'Hara's was excellent. This is usually a difficult time, but for us as a family to loose both parents within the space of 3 weeks was unprecedented. Anthony and the whole team made the process so much easier to bear. We can't thank them enough.

    We had fabulous service from Nicholas O’Hara Funeral Services and Rory in particular.  They were so thoughtful throughout the whole process, never pushy and considering I was arranging this from London via my sister in the USA and my mother in Verwood everything went really smoothly. The cars were superb, silver grey and not black which would have been so dreary on such a difficult day. The drivers were young and so very kind, there was tissues in the car for us as well. They also gave us memory cards and it’s those little touches which made everything easier to bear. Thank you for everything.

    We couldn't have been in better hands. O'Hara's guided us through this difficult time with support, respect, and understanding. The whole business was conducted with compassion and we knew Paul was in safe hands. They went out of their way to source a particular casket at the last minute and made sure it arrived in time. Everything ran like clockwork and although Anthony kept a low profile at the service we felt confident he had our back for support and knew he would step in if required. But it was the little personal touches that were appreciated and made the day very memorable for us in a positive way. A forward thinking practice not only bringing the service up to date by offering internet links to coordinate the arrangements, log attendees and collect donations but they also offer bereavement counselling.

    We were very happy with the way Anthony dealt with all the arrangements and at all times was he courteous and considerate. His recommendation of Louise to take the service was fully justified, she is lovely and spoke with real sincerity.

    From the first middle of the night phone call,through all the arrangements , the funeral service and the after care support. The care,compassion and efficiency have all  been of the highest  standard. The attention to,detail allowed the service to run like clockwork and relieved myself and my family of any worries through such a difficult time. The service supplied to my family in their time of need was excellent and I would not hesitate in recommending them.

    From the first phone call to final stages every member of the team at Nicholas O'Hara were excellent, professional, caring and respectful. It would be extremely difficult to find anything at all to criticise them.

    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.

  • 5 Anne Tillin 1st Aug 2017

    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.
