Our family are here for your family


Here you will find reviews and feedback we have received from some of the many families we have had the honour of helping through their own periods of loss and grief, whilst creating a special and unique day for their loved one. Please click the Funeral Zone link above to read our latest reviews all supplied independently.

I would just like to extend my gratitude to all the members of your staff who were in attendance at my mother’s funeral in Verwood last Monday. Very professional and a credit to your company. Thank you again from myself, my wife and three sisters.

Richard Barnard and family, Verwood

To Nick, Anthony and all the staff that helped me and my family cope with the loss of Mum. Kerry was amazing she was so kind and considerate to us, it helped so much. Chris’ eulogy was truly superb, everybody that went to the funeral commented and said really nice things about the service.

The hearse was fantastic and Mum would have enjoyed her last ride in such a vehicle. The boys (bearers) were great and an old friend of Mum’s was struggling to fetch her car at the front of the Crematorium with her invalid Husband and they ran down and drove it back to them, that was so thoughtful. Thank you to who it was.

You and Anthony gave us such as day we will never forget, it went so well. When I came to see Mum with Jane you were so kind, my Mum looked so peaceful. When I picked up the ashes after I had a lovely conversation with Anthony about everything and football!

We send our love and thanks to you all

Tony Brown and family, Christchurch


You asked me to give you feedback and I can categorically confirm that the service, care, staff and facilities were impeccable and could not have been improved in any way. As you probably know you carried out the funeral of my Mother two days after my husband’s and that too was brilliant although in every way different. I cannot tell you how difficult a time it was for me at that time but with the fantastic help of your staff I got through it.
It is my intention to take out a funeral plan with yourselves soon and also will be in touch soon with regard to the headstone for my Mum.
I have been praising your company to everyone I come in contact with but if there is anything that I can do to thank you please let me know.
Very best regards

Pam Collier, Verwood


We wouldn’t ask anyone else , There support and professionalism, the love and care is next to none to guide you through what is always a difficult process mentally and emotionally, so Thank you The O’Hara’s we would recommend you time and time again.

The most amazing compassionate company I have ever known, Anthony and family helped us plan our Sons special day and recently my Dad’s funeral, all truly remarkable people who love their work, couldn’t have asked for more they always go one better and make the painful planning an enjoyable event

Kelly Smith, Poole


The funeral we had to plan was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to face.. but with the help and support from Anthony & gang it made one of the hardest days of our lives a little brighter.. nothing was too much to ask and they got every detail right… my son’s got the send of they so rightly deserved and without our amazing funeral director it just wouldn’t of been the day it was. Cannot thank you enough for taking the time to tell us all the options available and all the special extras that made their last day here a little more unique to them and a little more comforting for us.

Managing care homes, I have a lot of dealings with funeral directors. Nicholas O Hara are the ones I recommend every time due to their professionalism, care, dignity and respect they show to the deceased, relatives and my staff. I have attended many funerals and their professionalism does not stop from beginning to end.

Penny Dale, Bournemouth


A wonderful family business, fantastic service and highly recommended. Couldn’t ask for better in difficult circumstances.

Claire Penney-Owen, Australia


After being inside many funeral directors looking behind the scenes in much detail that most members of the public never get the chance to see I can honestly say Nicholas O’Hara’s has to of been the best by far. The equipment is magnificent, it’s amazingly clean and the team are so welcoming and wonderful. It’s nice to see a funeral director who spends money on behind the scenes rather than just on what the public see. I would never take my family anywhere else now. Thank you for the great opportunities

Bethany Haggerty, Wimborne


Fantastic service from this family firm. We’ve used O’Hara’s far more often than I would like, but they make the process as easy as it can be.

Gemma Laurent, Bournemouth


Funerals are never easy, yet knowing that everything will be taken care of in such a family led way makes the whole process a lot easier. Couldn’t ask for more in approach and manner, and on the day you barely know they are they as it all runs so smoothly with space for family and friends to grieve. It’s one phone call that as a family you never want to make, yet know that one phone call will take the stress away. Thank you.

Emma Leach, Verwood


A wonderful family, who run a professional and heart-felt, personal service by truly understanding what you are going through. They take the time to ensure you understand the process and are patient in guiding and supporting you say ‘goodbye’ to your loved one. Even a comforting hug was on hand at a time when that is just what was needed. My family and I are very appreciative and thankful to your team.

Vanessa Hodgson, Lymington


I cannot thank O’Hara Funeral Directors for their help guidance and assistance at a time when it was needed. They are always considerate and I would recommend their services wherever possible.
