Anthony O’Hara was honoured to be able on behalf of the company arrange and conduct the full military funeral of Verwood soldier Rifleman Phillip Allen killed in Afghanistan in November.

The funeral attracted much media and public attention and was a very humbling and emotional funeral to be involved with.

The funeral held at Wimborne Minster was attended by over 700 people with around 3000 more paying their respects to the young hero on his final journey from his home in Verwood.


Many fund raising events are planned for the future to raise awareness and funds for Phillip’s families chosen charity of the Army Benevolent Fund. If you wish to make a donation to this charity in memory of Phillip please contact us and we will be able to help in this.
