    I cannot fault the service I have recieved . From planning the funeral to help with organising the service. Although due to covid things are restricted, everything was carried out with dignity and respect.

  • 5 Vanda Wallington 28th Jul 2020

    Just one criticism. I was not told the expected cost of the funeral.

  • 5 Janet Butler 28th Jul 2020

    Anthony, Chris and team were professional, kind and ensured the whole process from start to finish was in accordance with our wishes and ran smoothly.  I have no hesitation in recommending them, we are fortunate in East Dorset to have their services.  Thank you

    When you lose someone who means the world to you it is so hard, but Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors take away some of the pain, and their efficiency is unbeatable. They also remove all the worry, as their planning is meticulous. Defintely 5 stars.

    Nicholas O'Hara treated my late Father with the utmost respect and made sure my Mother and I were consulted every step of the way, presenting various options and giving us total confidence that what we wanted could and would happen.  We were guided gently through all the necessary processes, giving us the opportunity to grieve without having having to worry about anything in a world that was hitherto totally alien to us. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble and things we hadn't even considered were dealt with swiftly and efficiently without any fuss or causing any additional stress. Just a few days after my Father's funeral I had the misfortune to have to deal with a close friend's funeral in another area and have therefore had the 'luxury' of being able to make a comparison.  I can tell you, there is NO comparison and my recent experience has made me all too aware of just how much Nicholas O'Hara did for us. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Nicholas O'Hara - after all, at such a stressful time in your life, the last thing you want is to have anything else to worry about!

  • 5 Warwick and Meg HOWE 23rd Jul 2020

    We were very impressed with the friendly yet professional attitude of everyone at the company including Neil the Celebrant. We had already used O'Hara's for Joyce's husband Peter three years ago and it was lovely to have the consistency. No question was too much trouble and responses were very quick and thorough which is important at difficult times. So thank you very much to Rory and his team for all of their help and advice. Warwick and Meg ps - on a lighter note Meg was really impressed the Silver Hearse!!

    Nick and Anthony were great, a family run firm that are very professional and thoughtful. They took care of all the funeral arrangements and made what was a very difficult time much easier. Many Thanks.

  • 5 Mike Renouf 8th Jul 2020

  • 5 Paul Tindall 7th Jul 2020

    Lovely people to deal with highly recommended

  • 5 Sue Smith 5th Jul 2020

    I would like to thank the whole team for their compassionate support throughout from the moment I engaged the company until after my mum's funeral. They were in constant contact with me, asking if there was anything I needed and gently guiding me through the whole process. A very professional team and conducted in a sensitive way. I truly couldn't have got through this without them. Special thanks to Anthony O'Hara and Chris Antell. Thank you

  • 5 Tristan McMillan 30th Jun 2020

    Chris and Nicky were both excellent at helping us through what is a terrible time.  Chris organised everything with ease and the funeral ran perfectly.  When we needed a personal item returning within an hour he was able to accommodate immediately and get it to us. I submitted photos and music for the funeral late, and he was still able to get it sorted with the crematorium audio visual company.  Most importantly the chaps that came to collect my Dad were super kind and respectful on that terrible day.  We have used them twice now and in short I’d definitely recommend this funeral director.  

  • 5 Paul Cox 24th Jun 2020

    O'Hara Funeral Directors overall were very efficient and considerate with all elements of the funeral preparations and the funeral itself. Rory kept us abreast with updates, support and understanding throughout. He is an excellent ambassador for the company. Thanks You.

  • 5 Sheila Jackson 14th Jun 2020

    I have the highest respect for the way my mother's funeral was dealt with, from start to finish. I cannot thank Anthony enough for his kindness, checking on me, to make sure I was OK, and the respect and dignity that was shown to my late mother. Thank You.

  • 5 Sam & Tony Browne 13th Jun 2020

    It was just a perfect send of for my dad Who would of been very proud of his service even in these strange times  Thank you Anthony O’hara 

  • 5 Jean Chester 12th Jun 2020

    This is the second time I have used O'Hara . During this difficult time and over the 'lock down' period the funeral had to be sorted mainly by telephone or e mail so it was a great relief and comfort to find they were able to sort everything for me . Nothing was too much trouble. I cannot fault the kindness,sincerity and level of service . I would highly recommend their services

  • 5 John Green 12th Jun 2020

    Philip Evans went that extra mile to ensure Mum's funeral went well from start to finish. Can't thank him enough. Full marks to Nicholas Ohara Funeral Directors.

  • 5 Caroline Thistlethwaite 9th Jun 2020

    O’Hara’s were very efficient, professional and accommodated all our wishes and more. Their recommendation of a celebrant,  Martin Hiles, to conduct the service was excellent too. I would thoroughly recommend Nicholas O’Hara.
