    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.

    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

    Excellent service, as always. Impeccable timing and above and beyond what is expected.

  • 5 Garry Simpson 24th Apr 2018

    We very much appreciated the excellent service provided by O'Hara's which made a difficult day a little more bearable. Their professional and calm manner guided us through the preparations, was most reassuring on the day and helped us to give mum a befitting send-off.   O’Hara Funeral Directors were recommended to us and that recommendation was very well deserved.

    Nicolas O'Hara went over and beyond in the service and support that they gave us as a family during this very difficult time. Phillip was a great support and the day went really well. I cannot recommend Nicolas O'Hara's enough if you find yourself in the devastating place where you need to make funeral arrangements for a loved one. VERY professional yet personal too.

    Never fails. Nick is such a caring person and has an amazing team. We were made to feel like personal friends of the family from beginning to end. I would never think of asking anybody else to handle such an event in future. Thank you everyone - you made an extremely difficult time a little bit easier

    We really couldn’t have asked for a more professional and caring service than that which we received from everbody we came into contact with at Nicholas O’Hara. From our very first meeting with Chris to discuss what we’d like to do for Dad’s service, right through to picking up his ashes a couple of days later, we were treated with genuine kindness and care; nothing was too much trouble and the service that they/we put together for Dad went beautifully thanks to the efficiency and professionalism of all of the team at Nicholas O’Hara. Thank you all so much again for all you did for us at such a difficult time and also for the lovely little memory cards that you gave to us at the end of the service. We highly, highly, highly recommend this company; you will be in very safe and caring hands during what is obviously a very difficult time.

  • 5 Neil Smart 5th Apr 2018

  • 5 Jane Fox 31st Mar 2018

    An excellent service from all at Nicholas O’Hara, caring, empathy and person centred from start to finish, they made a difficult time manageable and nothing was too much trouble for them. I would recommend them to anyone and will be calling on them again in future when needed, thank you all sincerely for your care and attention. Jane Fox

    A very caring and professional service.  Both Chris Johnson and Chris Antell guided me through what I needed to do at a difficult time and helped me arrange my Mother’s funeral according to her wishes.

  • 5 Tanya Cluett 12th Mar 2018

    A day none of us expected so soon. We can not thank you enough for what you did for us, from going into see Nicky at Verwood the day after Mum passed, helping us put our minds to rest knowing that we had all the help we would need. The help from Phil to organise, Pauline being so kind when I went into see Mum, even so late in the day, it was not a problem. The fantastic service from Chris Antel on the day. We have had so many lovely comments to say how we have 'done Mum Proud', all we can say is you have 'done us proud', without you this day would not have been so special, for us or for the rest of her family and friends. Thank you again. xx

    Excellent. For me, informal and listened all the time to what I wanted - but with suggestions based on experience. 10/10.

  • 5 David Buse 11th Mar 2018

    Totally professional in every aspect of my mother’s funeral just as they were with my father’s and my aunts. I can not recommend them highly enough.

  • 5 Henio Firley 10th Mar 2018

    It was an emotional day. Hard to balance all the feelings of loosing a loved one , but although deeply sad at our families loss , the celebration of my mothers life was judged so well , we all left uplifted. I felt so pleased with my mothers special day organised by all at O'Hara. There were several unrequested comments that left me feeling that we had done the right thing,'' That was the nicest  I've ever been to '' !! Thanks Chris , Philip and everyone. Henio

    Just outstanding in every way xx

  • 5 Kathleen Cassidy 6th Mar 2018

    O'Hara's have been wonderful as the whole of my husbands funeral had to be re-arranged due to the snow which forced my husband' funeral to be cancelled.  I cannot praise them enough for the kindness and compassion show to me and my family.

  • 5 Susan Pulford 5th Mar 2018

    I am very pleased with Nicholas O’Hara Funeral Directors. They offered and delivered excellent service. The weather on the day was dreadful but they still carried on regardless as one would expect from a company of their standing. Excellent Five Star Service.

  • 5 Ann Humphreys 2nd Mar 2018

    Very supportive. friendly and a complete professional service with just the right degree of support; not intrusive or overbearing. I would heartily recommend this company to anyone in this sad process.

  • 5 Jacky Albrow 27th Feb 2018

    Extremely professional service. No question or request too much trouble. Thoroughly explained procedure and treated us with utmost respect. Little touches such as a particular picture chosen for coffin lid, based on information learnt on first family meeting, as well as ‘keepsake cards’ for members of family as a remembrance of loved one. The whole team are to be recommended as kind, caring and considerate. With our grateful thanks.
