A Family Business
Nicholas O’Hara Funeral Directors was formed in 1974 by Nicholas along with his father Alfred (Pat), a local police officer and his mother Brenda, a nurse and owner of Somerleigh Court Nursing Home which is where today the funeral head office in Wimborne runs from.
Jackie, Nicholas’ wife joined him in the business in the 1980’s and helped modernise the office set-up and create a new partnership.
In keeping with the family business, son Anthony joined in 1997 and later that year his sister Natalie. Many family members have, and still do work within the business, including spouses, aunts, uncles, in-laws and many close family friends.
A business full of traditional values, yet with a keen appreciation of the modern era, Nicholas, Jackie and family thrive on making the business achieve the high standards that Nicholas envisioned when he first entered the profession and which Nicholas O’Hara are recognised for.
Now in its second generation Nicholas O’Hara Funeral Directors is a truly independent family business.
