    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.

    We first used Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors when my Farther passed away 15 years ago. Sadly our Mum passed away just recently and we did not hesitate to call Anthony O'Hara to do our mums funeral. At such a sad time, we needed someone to advise us and guide us on what to do, Anthony took control of every thing, because he had taken care of our dad he new exactly what we wanted and he guided us through what we needed to do and in what order to do things. We found it so helpful, we took Anthony's advise on everything. We had a lovely funeral, just the way our Mum would have liked it, and the compliments on the day have been amazing. We cannot speak highly enough of everyone in the company that we dealt with regarding the funeral arrangements, they were all very respectful, and compassionate. Nothing was too much trouble. And they kept us informed of every thing from beginning to the end. As a family we can highly recommend Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors one hundred percent.

    I can't recommend them highly enough. O'Hara's were ultra efficient, yet never rushed us. They were flexible in the face of last minute changes of plan. The service sheets were produced to a high standard. The bearers were dignified and professional. The cars were comfortable and spotlessly clean. There was efficient liaison with florists, church and crematorium. The price was very reasonable considering the service we got. I would not hesitate to use them again.

  • 5 Jennie Tomlinson 26th Jan 2017

    Friendly, sensitive, understanding, no pushy salesman. Excellent communications, dealing with a single point of contact. The funeral itself went extremely smoothly.

  • 5 Ross Mckenzie 22nd Jan 2017

    I couldn't think of a better director to use. Sensitive, friendly and professional. An amazing collection of people truly dedicated to making a bad day better. 

  • 5 Joan Smithies 21st Jan 2017

    Very happy with everything. They were supportive, covered everything, and were dignified and efficient on the day of the funeral. Grateful that they came late on the day Chris died so that the family could have lots of time with him. I appreciated a home visit in the early stages. They understood that it was a Catholic funeral and the coffin and temporary cross on the grave were very much in keeping - the crucifix on the coffin was just as Chris would have wanted. I chose O'Haras because of a personal recommendation from a widowed friend and I would unhesitatingly recommend them to others.
