    All the staff were so kind and responded to how I felt when I spoke to them, whether I was tearful or coping and businesslike. The celebrant had a real gift and spoke so well that some of my friends thought he knew my husband personally even though they had never met and he prepared his tribute after speaking to me. They helped me with the structure and content of the service which was beautiful.

    All good. Sensitively conducted and made a stressful situation easier to bear.

    I could not fault Nicholas O'Hara. They did a fantastic job for us from start to finish and I have to say, Rory is an absolute credit to them. He was professional, caring and very respectful. At such a terrible time it was a real bonus to be able to arrange things like the order of service cards, a celebrant and an online obituary through Nicholas O'Hara. Thank you so much for looking after us and our loved one, Andrew. Sarah Buchanan

    I can’t thank Nick, Jackie and all the team enough for everything they did to make a difficult time so easy to manage.  Everyone was so kind and professional.  The funeral went so well and the service was lovely.  They did my father proud.

    I chose O'Hara's to prepare my Mother's funeral just last year, and was astounded by the level of service given.  It was therefore an easy choicer to go back to them for my Father's funeral just days ago.  The Staff are wonderful.  Rory was assigned to us and his level of knowledge, calm manner and politeness knows no bounds, we found him utterly charming and the way he calms one's nerves before and on the day is a fabulous help. The cars they own are absolutely stunning, comfortable and not depressing as I have found with the black cars.  The help provided with the planning process was brilliant, attentive and again professional.  Nobody was pushy, or trying to upset at all ever!  The little touches mean a lot, like the tissues in the car doors which had a beautiful one liner on them saying that sometimes a memory escapes from the eye and rolls down the cheek, and the little credit cards for purses/wallets , which have Dad's beautiful photograph from the service sheet on them as a keepsake which were left behind for us to find the day after the funeral.  The Salvation Army carried out our service and the Major conducting it commented herself on how professional they were, and gave them extra thanks because Rory even carried her umbrella from the arrival room through to the exit room something which she's never had done before!! All this makes for a wonderful professional company who I can't praise highly enough and would have NO hesitation in recommending to anybody.  Please book them, you will NOT be disappointed.  Thanks to all concerned.

    We were very happy with the service provided and the endless kindness and patience we were afforded at a very difficult time in our lives.

    I cannot speak highly enough of the thoughtfulness, efficiently and professionalism of Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors. From the initial contact, throughout the day and afterwards they have thouggt of everything. Philip was amazing, he picked the perfect celebrant, even organised a special plaque on the coffin for Dad. On the day both he and his team made an awful day run like clockwork. The little details afterwards, like copies of the service for all of us, were so thoughtful. Thank you.

  • 5 Bernard King 25th Jul 2018

    Many thanks for all the help you have given family.

    Most things were excellent however on the day of the funeral some things could have been better: Not all of the cards were collected from the church. There was no collecting box for donations in the church and/or hall.

  • 5 Elizabeth Smith 21st Jul 2018

    As always, perfect

  • 5 Howard Geoffrey Millichap 20th Jul 2018

    Absolutely excellent service from O'Haras. They did everything so that we just had to turn up on the sad day. Highly recommended.

  • 5 Linda Kehoe 15th Jul 2018

    Every one was so nice. Caring and helpful at this very difficult time. Helped us through everything. The tribute that Chris read about our mum was really lovely.

  • 5 Peter White 13th Jul 2018

    Everything was meticulously organised and despite the sad nature of the occasion the family felt we gave my uncle the best possible send off. I cannot recommend Nicholas O'Hara Funeral Directors enough for easing us through the day with the minimum of fuss. Well done.

  • 5 Heather Matthews 3rd Jul 2018

  • 5 Nigel Ledger 26th Jun 2018

    As with the funeral of my mother four years ago O'Hara's took control and made a difficult time more bearable.  I cannot praise them enough and recommend them to anyone who needs to care for a loved one who has passed on.

  • 5 Lynne Mitchell 22nd Jun 2018

    Excellent service. Would have no hesitation in recommending them. 

  • 5 Lisa Dennis-Lunn 15th Jun 2018

    This has been the most difficult time in my life ever. Losing a child is a heart  wrenching thing a parent goes through, Nicholas O’Hara made this the most loving and joyful experience. Not one thing was too much trouble, the really cared about our family and took our every idea and enhanced it to the full. The love that was felt in the church was a real celebration of his fun filled life. We will never forget how kind they were and even after the funeral contacting us to make sure we are okay .
