    Everything ran smoothly on the day due to  Dan at Littleover helping my sister and I arrange Mum’s funeral down to the last detail. It was as stress free as it could possibly be, particularly in COVID times.

  • 5 Michael Lancaster 17th Mar 2021

    We were very impressed with the professional, courteous and respectful service we received from A W Lymn. We were able to get the options we required, and without being pushed to buy anything we did not. The whole process went smoothly and we were kept up to date at every step. We were especially impressed by the very fine hearse provided, and by the funeral director walking in front of the cortege, baton in hand for the first few hundred yards from my late father's house. Would definitely recommend A W Lymn.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are happy that you were impressed with the service you received along with the hearse and the funeral director. We also thank you for your recommendation and taking the time to post this positive review of A.W. Lymn. Dan.
  • 5 Elizabeth Cox 9th Mar 2021

    At the worst possible time in my life I found L W Lymn to be kind and sensitive, right from the moment when they took my partner from our home, where he died, to the day of his funeral and beyond. They were often in touch regarding the funeral arrangements, just to make sure everything was as I wanted it to be. They arranged everything for me, from stunningly beautiful, fresh flower wreaths to a wonderful humanist celebrant, whose eulogy was perfect for my darling partner. I had a few visits to their premises in Littleover, to consult with Dan, the funeral arranger, who listened intently with interest and carried out every wish every step of the way. I can't recommend them highly enough. They made a very difficult time as calm and straightforward as possible. Well done team Lymn and thank you all. x

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this positive review, recommendation and your kind words. I am glad that I was able to make this difficult time a little bit easier with my sensitivity and by keeping you well informed throughout. I am also pleased that you thought the flowers were wonderful and that the Celebrant was perfect. Thank you again Dan.

    I was very impressed from start to finish,the service provided was excellent. I cannot praise Dan Barnes enough for his prompt,respectful & kind handling of the arrangements,keeping us fully informed every step of the way. My father was picked up from the care home immediately after the doctor had certified his passing,& Dan`s colleague Kevin called us promptly to let us know. Dan either e-mailed us or made a telephone call to go through the arrangements, & I was made very welcome in my visit to the Littleover Office to sign the forms. The funeral itself was very well organised,& a great send off for my father

  • 5 Jonathan Storer 5th Nov 2020

    Very thoughtful and efficient service by Dan and his team at the Littleover branch. I would highly recommend AW Lymn. It was a particularly difficult time for me during the current COVID-19 pandemic, as it meant that I had to organise my Dad's funeral, who lived in Littleover, from my home in Australia. Nothing was too difficult, and everything ran to plan, ensuring the best possible service and arrangements for my Dad. Thanks Dan and the team.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thanks you for taking the time to write these kind words, we are glad that we were able to be of service and ensure everything went as planned, and we truly appreciate your recommendation. Thank you, Dan.
  • 5 Denise Harvey 18th Oct 2020

    Dan helped us to plan Mum's cremation by offering advice and help during restrictions of the pandemic. Being local, it made arranging things was so much easier. We were also very grateful for the help and respect shown by Kevin Hall on the day of her funeral. Her send off was made much more peaceful and stress free. Thank you Dan, Kevin & all at Lymn

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
