    Can't rate them highly enough. Can't fault them. Kind, gentle, compassionate but totally efficient in a quiet and honourable way. Treated the deceased with dignity and family with empathy.

    I cannot recommend Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors highly enough.  The care and respect shown at all times has been exemplorary, nothing was too much trouble.  This is just the kind of help that you need at a very sad time.  I must also say a very big thank you to Chris Antell for the wonderful Service that he conducted at the Crematorium.

    Could not fault the staff, they were very caring & the attention to detail was magnificent. My daughter and I could not have asked for better people to help us with this difficult time.

    I cannot praise O'Hara funeral directors highly enough. They are excellent from start to finish and care about your family more than you can imagine. Perfect.

    Organising a funeral for a loved one is something that you really don't want to do, but you do want it to represent the life that your loved one lived and for it it to go smoothly and perfectly for them as it's the last thing that you can do for them   The whole experience was handled with the utmost care and compassion and we were guided every step of the way . The organisation of the whole process  was handled expertly and professionally by Rory Craig.  We were reccomended to Neil McCain , Celebrant , by Rory, who spent time with us to get to know all about my dad and delivered a service where every commented that he had captured my dad perfectly , we felt so too.  We would like to thank Rory, Neil and Theresa (at the West Moors office ) for their kindness and professionalism at a very sad time for us  Bernie & Sue Humes

    I was incredibly pleased with the way Nicholas O'Hara personally dealt with my Mother's funeral arrangements. Many thanks once again.

  • 5 Ian Warburton 20th Mar 2017

    Professional but also with tenderness for such a sad occasion. Regularly checking that everything was satisfactory and excellent attention to detail. Anthony has such a calming voice which can de-stress even the most difficult of situations and comfort the grieving family. We would highly recommend them. The Warburton family

    Exceptional care from start to finish (and beyond). I cannot thank or recommend Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Dorecrors highly enough. They made what was a very sad and difficult time for my family that much easier and more bearable by being so kind, understanding and extremely efficient. Many thanks again to you all. Particularly Chris, Anthony and Nick. Kathryn Earl (Mollie's Granddaughter)

  • 5 Margaret Matthews 1st Mar 2017

    Dear Anthony, I know that John's wife Margaret has already expressed her thanks and appreciation for the manner in which you and all the members of your staff have dedicated themselves in assisting our family in the detailed arrangements we required. Your sympathetic understanding and professional approach at such a difficult time has been greatly appreciated. Despite our many variations leading up to the memorial service, your final arrangements, together with the overall timing both at St James's church and Poole Crematorium was impeccable and we have received a magnificent response from all who attended my late brother's funeral. Thank you all once again. Yours sincerely Reg Matthews - John's brother

    Mary had already chosen to use Nicholas O'Hara, as they were her local under takers, and I have to say that she couldn't have chosen better. At a sad time one needs the support of someone like Chris, with his can do attitude and attention to detail both before and after the service. On the day of Mary's funeral Chris made sure that my friends and I got the photo opportunity we wanted and the service went without a hitch. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nicholas O'Hara.

    Very efficient, kind and considerate.

  • 5 Natalie Collison 15th Feb 2017

    I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Anthony and his team at Nicholas O'Hara funeral directors. Arranging my father's cremation & funeral is by far the hardest thing I have ever done, and Anthony held our hand through it all. From visiting our home to talk through options, to arranging a beautiful service - everything was taken care of. Every call and every question was answered sympathetically and with kindness, and nothing was ever too much bother. The added 'little touches' were so very much appreciated... the care calls to mum to see how she was, the comprehensive Celebrant's copy of the order of service, the little wallet-sized memory cards and so much more. Thank you Anthony and all of the team who supported us during our most difficult days. We won't hesitate to recommend you.

  • 5 Valerie Watson 14th Feb 2017

    An excellent service from all the staff from the first call informing them of my husband's situation through to the caring, compassionate and thoughtful planning of his funeral service. My family and I are most grateful for their understanding. Valerie Watson

    We found everybody to be so helpful, all the advice given took away so much of the stress. The attention from Anthony was second to none and we felt so assured that all arrangements were taken care of. I can't speak highly enough of Anthony and his family, thank you so much.
