David Catley 17th Feb 2019

An overall excellent service provided for our father’s funeral. It was very reassuring to have O'Hara take on a lot of the organisation required to prepare for the funeral and for their highly professional support on the day of the funeral - Dad would have liked the attention to detail. Thank you for helping to make it a good problem free day.

Hazel Smith 15th Feb 2019

Good care and attention to detail, sensitively handled.

    We can’t thank O Hara’s enough for their outstanding and caring service. What a delightful family of funeral directors. Their kindness ad attention to detail is second to none. They were faultless from start to finish and we shall definitely be recommending them in the future. Special thanks to Anthony O Hara for his understanding & professionalism and Rob Hazel for his incredible ability to soften the sorrow of that sad day.

  • 5 Lynne Watkinson 6th Jan 2019

    I cannot fault the service provided by O’Haras. Very professional and the funeral went without a hitch despite being organised over the Christmas period. Sincere thanks to all concerned.

  • 5 William Gilbert 26th Oct 2018

    Just incredible in every way. World Class !

  • 5 Simon Roberts 8th Oct 2018

    Excellent throughout. Very helpful during this difficult time. Everything went smoothly and we received a very professional service from the beginning. I would highly recommend Nicholas O'Hara to anyone.

  • 5 Sarah Buchanan 29th Aug 2018

    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

  • 5 Malcolm Eels 27th Aug 2018

  • 5 Jo Tombs 14th Aug 2018

    My family and I were very happy with everything on the 9th of August.I cannot fault in any way.I must mention Chris Antil who was fantastic,and made a very difficult day for us a lasting memory. And of course Chris Johnson who was excellent in every way. Thankyou to every body involved.

    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. 

  • 5 Elizabeth Smith 21st Jul 2018

    As always, perfect

  • 5 Susan Mulligan 13th May 2018

    Rory ensured we had nothing to worry about for Dad’s funeral, making a difficult time more bearsble. Chris made the service very personal to us. His tribute to Dad was spot on!  They both helped to give Dad a lovely send off. Thank you. 

  • 5 Julie Hunt 8th May 2018

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nicholas O'Hara. I feel my Dad was treated with respect and I was supported every step of the way.

  • 5 Victoria Shapley 30th Mar 2018

    A very caring and professional service.  Both Chris Johnson and Chris Antell guided me through what I needed to do at a difficult time and helped me arrange my Mother’s funeral according to her wishes.

  • 5 David Buse 11th Mar 2018

    Totally professional in every aspect of my mother’s funeral just as they were with my father’s and my aunts. I can not recommend them highly enough.

  • 5 Nigel Barclay 3rd Feb 2018

    Nicholas O’Hara have handled 3 funerals for us in less than a year. On each occasion they have helped us, as a family, to provide a fitting final tribute to the much loved people we have lost. Everyone we met, either in person or on the telephone, was always most professional and friendly; they were all a pleasure to deal with at a difficult time.

  • 5 Judith Anderson-Toner 2nd Jan 2018

    The funeral for my dear husband was very dignified and everything was just as perfect as it could be. I know Nick would have been very proud.

  • 5 Steve Farquharson 19th Dec 2017

    Very understanding, courteous and helpful at every step of the way. It's never nice to have to go through a situation like planning a funeral but Nicholas O'Hara made it as stress-free and straight-forward as possible.

  • 5 Gillian Ramsay 18th Dec 2017

    The team at Nicholas O'Hara were very helpful and kind throughout the whole process, and the funeral itself was organised efficiently and sensitively. We were really happy with the service they provided, and would certainly recommend them.

  • 5 Linda Ferne 9th Dec 2017

    We could not have asked for a better service from a funeral firm. Everyone we had dealings with were always sympathetic, respectful and kind. Their attention to detail was second to none and we can honestly say they did the family proud from start to finish and gave my dear Dad the best send off we could have wished for. They made what will always be a difficult experience so much easier to deal with. I would highly recommend them

  • 5 Sylvia Paddy 28th Mar 2017

    Could not fault the staff, they were very caring & the attention to detail was magnificent. My daughter and I could not have asked for better people to help us with this difficult time.

  • 5 Sue Geall 26th Mar 2017

    Organising a funeral for a loved one is something that you really don't want to do, but you do want it to represent the life that your loved one lived and for it it to go smoothly and perfectly for them as it's the last thing that you can do for them   The whole experience was handled with the utmost care and compassion and we were guided every step of the way . The organisation of the whole process  was handled expertly and professionally by Rory Craig.  We were reccomended to Neil McCain , Celebrant , by Rory, who spent time with us to get to know all about my dad and delivered a service where every commented that he had captured my dad perfectly , we felt so too.  We would like to thank Rory, Neil and Theresa (at the West Moors office ) for their kindness and professionalism at a very sad time for us  Bernie & Sue Humes
