    I chose O'Hara's to prepare my Mother's funeral just last year, and was astounded by the level of service given.  It was therefore an easy choicer to go back to them for my Father's funeral just days ago.  The Staff are wonderful.  Rory was assigned to us and his level of knowledge, calm manner and politeness knows no bounds, we found him utterly charming and the way he calms one's nerves before and on the day is a fabulous help. The cars they own are absolutely stunning, comfortable and not depressing as I have found with the black cars.  The help provided with the planning process was brilliant, attentive and again professional.  Nobody was pushy, or trying to upset at all ever!  The little touches mean a lot, like the tissues in the car doors which had a beautiful one liner on them saying that sometimes a memory escapes from the eye and rolls down the cheek, and the little credit cards for purses/wallets , which have Dad's beautiful photograph from the service sheet on them as a keepsake which were left behind for us to find the day after the funeral.  The Salvation Army carried out our service and the Major conducting it commented herself on how professional they were, and gave them extra thanks because Rory even carried her umbrella from the arrival room through to the exit room something which she's never had done before!! All this makes for a wonderful professional company who I can't praise highly enough and would have NO hesitation in recommending to anybody.  Please book them, you will NOT be disappointed.  Thanks to all concerned.

    I cannot speak highly enough of the thoughtfulness, efficiently and professionalism of Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors. From the initial contact, throughout the day and afterwards they have thouggt of everything. Philip was amazing, he picked the perfect celebrant, even organised a special plaque on the coffin for Dad. On the day both he and his team made an awful day run like clockwork. The little details afterwards, like copies of the service for all of us, were so thoughtful. Thank you.

    Most things were excellent however on the day of the funeral some things could have been better: Not all of the cards were collected from the church. There was no collecting box for donations in the church and/or hall.

    Absolutely excellent service from O'Haras. They did everything so that we just had to turn up on the sad day. Highly recommended.

    Every one was so nice. Caring and helpful at this very difficult time. Helped us through everything. The tribute that Chris read about our mum was really lovely.

  • 5 Peter White 13th Jul 2018

    Everything was meticulously organised and despite the sad nature of the occasion the family felt we gave my uncle the best possible send off. I cannot recommend Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors enough for easing us through the day with the minimum of fuss. Well done.

    As with the funeral of my mother four years ago O'Hara's took control and made a difficult time more bearable.  I cannot praise them enough and recommend them to anyone who needs to care for a loved one who has passed on.

    Excellent service. Would have no hesitation in recommending them.

    This has been the most difficult time in my life ever. Losing a child is a heart  wrenching thing a parent goes through, Nicholas O’Hara made this the most loving and joyful experience. Not one thing was too much trouble, the really cared about our family and took our every idea and enhanced it to the full. The love that was felt in the church was a real celebration of his fun filled life. We will never forget how kind they were and even after the funeral contacting us to make sure we are okay .

    Rory ensured we had nothing to worry about for Dad’s funeral, making a difficult time more bearsble. Chris made the service very personal to us. His tribute to Dad was spot on!  They both helped to give Dad a lovely send off. Thank you.

    The most professional, caring, compassionate people to help us through the most sad and painful time. They held our hands through the whole arrangement process, with nothing being too much trouble. We cannot thank them enough xx

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nicholas O'Hara. I feel my Dad was treated with respect and I was supported every step of the way.

  • 5 Mandy Fleckney 1st May 2018

    We couldn’t have asked for better care at this difficult time. From entering the Verwood office to meet Chris, to being brought home after Dad’s service the comfort and support we received was exceptional.  I would also like to give a special mention to Nicky for looking after Mum so lovingly and to the ‘other’ Chris for  his celebration of Dad’s life.  Thank you all from all of us. From Mandy and family.

    We could not have asked for anything more at this difficult time. Nicholas O'Hara gently guided us through all that needed to be addressed. They organised everything so thoughtfully and so professionally - how truly thankful we are to them.

  • 5 Michael Nelson 29th Apr 2018

    My family have used their services on several occasions and have always found that they offer a highly professional and comprehensive service second to none.

  • 5 Trina Case 28th Apr 2018

    O'Hara's were quite simply the best. Right from the moment we walked in, we were warmly welcomed, comforted and incredibly well looked after. Anthony was amazing (as was everyone there) - nothing was too much trouble and everything was superbly organised. I cannot sing their praises highly enough. Knowing that they had everything under control made a huge difference at what was a very sad and difficult time. My sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone there. 

  • 5 Robert Rossiter 25th Apr 2018

    A company we can truly recommend. Care and attention to detail were second to none. Anthony even called a week after the funeral to make sure we were ok. Chris Antell is a lovely man and such an asset to O'Hara's. He met with us a couple of times before the funeral and the way he read the eulogy totally captured the essence of our loved one. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. Christina and Robert Rossiter
