    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.

    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.

    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

  • 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.

  • 5 Ronald Waugh 20th Feb 2018

    The attention we received from Anthony O'Hara and his team was of the highest order. Their personal touch throughout was greatly appreciated by all the family. The funeral service was taken by Chris Antell who made it very special. We are very grateful to them for helping us through a difficult, sad time.

  • 5 Rob Francis 20th Feb 2018

    I found Nicholas O'Hara helpful, caring and compassionate from our first meeting to the funeral itself, and beyond. No question was unanswered, they kept in touch every step of the way and provided an excellent service. Our main contact, Chris Johnson, handled everything superbly and the other members of the team that we dealt with, when Chris was unavailable, dealt with us efficiently and with compassion.

  • 5 Jane and Les Popperwell 16th Feb 2018

    It was just over a year ago we used Nicolas O Hara's for our dad. They handled the loss of our Mum with much sympathy and kindness. Organisation was wonderful, and Chris Antell managed to capture the spirit and personality of mum perfectly during the service. They are such a lovely team of people and so easy to deal with, making this sad time for us all much easier. We did not have a lot of time or organise everything, but the team were amazing, really really helpful.

  • 5 Nigel Barclay 3rd Feb 2018

    Nicholas O’Hara have handled 3 funerals for us in less than a year. On each occasion they have helped us, as a family, to provide a fitting final tribute to the much loved people we have lost. Everyone we met, either in person or on the telephone, was always most professional and friendly; they were all a pleasure to deal with at a difficult time.

  • 5 Lesley Bowden 23rd Jan 2018

    Although Brian's funeral was a quiet, private cremation, we knew exactly what we wanted. Chris Johnson was impeccable in making our wishes come true. He listened carefully to our requests and added little touches that we hadn't even thought about - a picture of a ballroom dancing couple on the plate on his coffin, for example. All the way through the arrangements Chris was quietly respectful and never made us feel rushed or that it was just a job to him. We were also shown around the facilities and were impressed with the company's openness. You only get one chance to arrange a person's funeral and we have absolutely no regrets in choosing Nicholas O'Hara Funeral directors.
