Nicholas O’Hara Funeral Directors has 5 funeral homes located across Dorset:

Wimborne (38 Rowlands Hill, BH21 1AW) This is were the company started from in 1974 when Nicholas along with his father Alfred (Pat), and his mother Brenda, converted Somerleigh Court, from a Nursing Home into what remains our Head offices today.

The facilities here include 3 viewing chapels of rest; a state of the art mortuary and theatre; garaging for their fleet of stunning Jaguar hearse and limousines; 2 family lounges; funeral director offices; workshop; disabled access and facilities; parking and home to the main admin and accounts team. In 2015 the company acquired the property which was the original coach house to the main building, and converted this into the new garaging, workshop and staff accomodation. In 2022 a full refurbsihment of the chapels and offices was undertaken. 

Verwood (5 The Old Pottery, Manor Way, BH31 6HF) As the business grew Nicholas saw the opportunity for the business to expand and in 1982 Nicholas and his family moved their home to to start a new funeral home in Vicarage Road. In 2009 the funeral home was relocated to its new location in the new development in the centre of the town. This funeral homes has 2 viewing chapels of rest; family lounge; disabled access and facilities (disabled parking is available to the front on Manor Way) and reception area. 

West Moors (128-130 Station Road, BH22 0JB) In 1987 a third funeral home was opened here in the village centre. In 2008 the company expanded into the adjoining unit doubling the size of the funeral home. This has all of the same facilities as Verwood and parking can be found opposite or to the rear past the shops and pub. In 2020 both West Moors and Verwood received a new facelift with new signage and decor throughout. 

Westbourne, Bournemouth (38 Seamoor Road, BH4 9AS) In December 2022 the company took over the lease of this property from a previous funeral business and became their first expansion since the 1980’s. The facilities here include reception; family lounge, viewing chapel of rest, disabled access and facilities.
