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

  • 5 Laragh Taylor 19th Apr 2020

    Dan and the whole AW Lymn team have been supportive and professional. Highly recommended 

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    It was with great sadness to hear that David, a friend of mine for over 40 years and a colleague for most of that, died on the seventh anniversary of the death of Shelagh who also worked for our family company in the latter part of her life. David always had a warm and friendly smile and I know that Dan, Kevin and all the staff IN our Derby area remember his with great fondness and were saddened by his death. We deeply regret that due to the COVID pandemic such restrictions had to be placed on the numbers attending his funeral but we will all remember him for his lovely friendly manner. Thank you on behalf of both the Lymn Rose family and the greater family of which David was a part being A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service.

    From the moment we first made contact  with A W Lymn we felt heard, supported and respected. Every thought and wish we had for my parents funeral was honoured by them. The staff were wonderful, thoughtful and intuitive which at a sad and difficult time is so very important. The chapel of rest and ease of access to it was so very special.  My parents had a beautiful send off,  and we can do nothing but highly recommend them.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for these positive words, they are much appreciated and we are glad that we could accommodate all your wishes and give Mr. and Mrs. Camwell a fitting send off. I also appreciate your recommendation. Thank you, Dan.

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.
