    At one of the worst times in your lives you need a caring and understanding group of people to help you and that is what you get with Nicholas O'Hara's. We have used them 3 times in the past and so when my grandma passed recently there was only one funeral directors I wanted and they outdid themselves, the respect and care shown towards grandma as well as us mourners was second to none. Nicholas rang me regularly, just to check I was doing ok and he made a sad and stressful time a little easier. The drivers of the mourners cars were kind, friendly and understanding and they helped my disabled uncle to get in the car with no hesitation. Even when we wanted to see grandma in the chapel of rest they arranged it within a day and we were told 'take as long as you need' no rushing, just total care. I cannot recommend them enough, my grandma would have loved the service which was beautiful, well prepared and respectful. They may be just doing their jobs but they put 150% into it.

    The care and support we received from everyone at O'hara's was outstanding. They supported us greatly throughout and went above and beyond to help us create the send off we wanted.

    Nicholas O'Hara were excellent. All the preparations leading up to the funeral were handled professionally but sensitively. On the day every detail fell into place seamlessly. We were extremely pleased and all the people that attended said that the funeral service was perfect. Thanks

    Everything we needed was taken care of efficiently and promptly, and everyone was very helpful. On the day of the funeral we were taken care of sensitively and confidently, and were made to feel like the most important family in the world. Thank you so very much for making a difficult day run very smoothly and with a tremendous amount of dignity.

    The personal service provided was second to none. Attention to detail and the personalisation of the service could not be faulted. Nothing was too much effort and all the staff were sensitive and and always the utmost professionals. We would recommend OHaras Funeral directors very strongly to others.

    We could not have asked for a more sensitive,caring & professional service. They took all the worry out of the funeral organisation which allowed us the necessary time to concentrate on the parts we wanted to play. A huge thank you from all the family.

    Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors have supported our Family in the past with our late Father's funeral so it was only natural to return to them when our dear Mum passed away recently. They are compassionate, understanding, sincere, respectful and down-to-earth. At the same time, the team make you feel secure and let you be - nothing is an issue to them. They really feel like family. You couldn't ask for more ;) x

    From the very first phone call I felt totally at ease and comfortable. Whilst everything was handled in a very efficient way it was also handled extremely sympathically for which I was extremely grateful. All worries concerning the funeral arrangements were taken out of my hands and this carried right the way through the actual funeral itself. Regular contact was made with me to ensure that everything was in line with my requests. I cannot praise all the staff at Nicolas O'Hara enough. When my Dad died I was left completely numb and they immediated stepped in and made the whole process proceed extremely smoothly.

  • 5 Helen Brennan 20th Jul 2016

    First Class service from beginning to end. Chris was amazing and the way we were treated during such a very difficult time was sensitive compassionate and professional. Nothing was too much trouble and their motto "our family are there for your family" could not be more true. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to be treated as a name and not just a number. Little extra things they did made a huge difference and made u realise that they really care about what they do.

    Everything was done so smoothly even down to making the initial contact with the Canon who took the service. They offer such a professional service, but also manage to make it very personal at the same time.

  • 5 Nicholas Love 22nd Jun 2016

    We were able to celebrate Dad's life in a very personal way which was so important to us and we couldn't have done that without the support Anthony, Chris and all the team at Nicholas O'Hara. In a very emotional time they became part of the family and no question or request was too much trouble.

  • 5 Rhona Banks 12th Jun 2016

    Nicholas O'Hara carried out all the funeral arrangements for my Mother with dignity, kindness and thoughtfulness. Everything ran smoothly on the day which helped such a lot. The Order of Service was prepared beautifully and there were several personal touches which meant a lot during a difficult time.

  • 5 Daniel Ferguson 11th Jun 2016

    My two sons and I were most impressed by the way Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors Ltd responded quickly to the initial telephone call, communicated regularly and handled the funeral arrangements in an efficient and sympathetic manner. The leader of the service at the Poole Crematorium was of great support to us and could easily have been part of the family. We can definitely recommend this company.

  • 5 Ann Morgan 31st May 2016

    The help, compassion and attention to detail received during the preparation and planning of Roger's funeral was second to none, really excellent.  The detail and professionalism on the day of the funeral was fantastic and we knew that the day would proceed seamlessly as a result of the attention to detail shown by Kerry at all times, Kerry was excellent and we would recommend the services of Nicholas O'Hara funeral directors to anyone needing such a service. Many thanks Ann Morgan
