    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 5 Anthony Wilkinson 16th Dec 2016

    Anthony, Chris and all the team did an outstanding job in the arranging and execution of the funeral of my late wife Vivienne Wilkinson. They were very professional but very caring at the same time, a difficult balance to achieve ,no detail was too small or overlooked. They helped to make a very difficult day go without a hitch. I cannot recommend the company too highly.

  • 5 Tanya Houghton 13th Dec 2016

    Nicholas O' Hara and all his staff were perfect. So friendly and willing to help I would not hesitate to recommend them.

  • 5 Kathleen Zeal 9th Dec 2016

    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. 

  • 5 Adrian Elmer 5th Dec 2016

    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.
