    Everything was carried out with maximum efficiency, sensitivity and care. Arrangements were also made with great compassion for my son and I to visit the Chapel at the Directors on  2 separate occasions. Many thanks to Philip who has seen me through two close family bereavements in 3 months. Also to Natalie who printed the Service Sheets and all the girls who always answered the phone in a very caring and sympathetic way.

    The loss of our Dad, Peter, was by no means unique, but to us it was. A time of great family sadness and incomparable individual pain. Throughout this whole process it was important to feel we had friends who were dealing with Dad and guiding us through the whole process of his funeral and cremation and then ultimately the interment of his ashes. We were made to feel completely at ease by all the most excellent staff at Nicholas O'Hara, that there was nothing else that mattered but making sure that our Dad's funeral was everything we wanted it to be. The standard of professional service we received was of the highest order and perhaps even more important to us at this time, that Dad was in the care of people who cared about him and about the family. Thank you to all those at Nicholas O'Hara.

  • 5 Sharon Richardson 14th Nov 2016

    These guys are truly the most professional, compassionate and caring individuals that I have ever met. Nothing was too much trouble and the phone calls along the way, just to check that we were all OK meant such a lot. This is my first ever experience with the process of a funeral and it was made so easy with such kindness and thought for the family as a whole.

    I can"t recommend Nicholas O'Hara's Funeral Services enough. At a very painful tme for our family Nick O'Hara was the consummate Funerl Director, full of compassion and empathy, and that impacted on the rest of his staff at their Wimborne branch and we were able to hold a memorable service to say goodbye to our beloved son.

    At every stage everyone was polite, kind and very efficient and Philip phoned me regularly  before and after the service to check on me and the arrangements  I wouldn't hesitate  to recommend O 'Hara's to anyone. With their help and Chris who gave a wonderful eulogy the day of my husband's funeral was a wonderful celebration of his life and not what I had dreaded.

    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.

  • 5 Peter Lowther 23rd Sep 2016

    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

  • 5 Laura Reynolds 14th Sep 2016

    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.

  • 5 Julia Scorey 21st Aug 2016

    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.

  • 5 Jenny Edmondson 9th Aug 2016

    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

  • 5 Clair Anderson 8th Aug 2016

    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.
