    I chose O'Hara because I knew the business, having driven past it for so many years. I'm not sure how their prices compare to other funeral directors in the area because I didn't shop around for quotes. Firstly I didn't have time and secondly I don't think I would have done it anyway. Because of the situation with the virus I had an unattended cremation for my mother. From start to finish O'Hara were really kind and considerate. A real pleasure to do business with at such an emotional time.

    The funeral for my husband Terry was held at Poole Crematorium and was conducted in their normal exemplary professionalism, efficiency, courteous and thoughtfulness way. This was the 3rd funeral that O'Haras have done for my family and even in this unusual surreal situation that we all find ourselves in they are still there for you to answer any questions/queries and also treat you as if you are the only one going through a bereavement. I believe this is a very hard and trying time for them as they are a very hands on company. From Jan and Family thank you very much for the lovely way that the funeral of Terry was handled.

    Our utmost gratitude to Anthony and his family from receiving the initial phone call to the final arrangement's at the end of the Crematorium Service for dear Mum last Thursday. Excellent professional service second to none, so caring, with genuine kindness and compassion shown throughout, nothing was too much trouble. Also need to thank Martin Hiles our wonderful Celebrant for his much patience and work in the preparation of delivering a very special and heart warming service we wanted it to be. Thank you to you all for everything at Nicholas O'Hara for making a sad time a memorable day, Sandra, Steve, Sue, Pete, Gary, Kevin and Denise.

    Considerate, compassionate, bespoke, nothing too much trouble. I am so grateful to have had their support during this time in my life where I have felt most vulnerable.

    We were very comforted with the  sincere and sympathetic manner and approach of Anthony O'Hara, who assisted us remotely in a calm, efficient and caring way in these extraordinarily difficult times. He went well beyond our expectations on several occasions, and we recommend their firm and service without reservation.

    The O’Hara’s provided an excellent service throughout the process. Made it extremely easy to arrange. They handled the whole situation with  care,  sensitivity as well as going above and beyond to give our beloved one the send off they deserved under these difficult circumstances. Our family is very grateful for this.

    It was beautifully organised

  • 5 Catherine Lane 7th May 2020

    Nicolas O’Haras have organised two funerals for me, one for my Dad and more recently one for my Step Mum. With 9 years between them the service for both was exemplary. Anthony made the whole process so easy to navigate at such a hard time.

    Professional and caring service We are very impressed with the simple yet dignified service provided by Anthony and his family. When I contacted Anthony, he could not have been more helpful and compassionate. He understood what my mother in law and us wanted and kept me informed at every stage of the arrangements. I cannot thank him enough for the support he and his family provided at this particularly difficult time. If you want a professional and caring service then I would recommend them

    I can’t express enough how wonderful Nicholas O’Hara are. Everything they do is with the utmost care and dignity. Chris Johnson oversaw our dads recent funeral and previously our mums. He took away any of the stresses and strains of organisation and made suggestions where we needed them.  I have nothing but praise.  Vanessa Holloway
