Dan has been hugely supportive through what has been an even more challenging time due to the Covid-19 crisis. Very adaptive and accommodating my needs to sort out the funeral but also to put in place a memorial for sister. I can't thank him enough.

Graham Ford 8th Mar 2020

Excellent. Sorted everything out for us. Nothing was to much trouble. Will definitely use again when my next wife dies in 2 or 3 years time.

    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.

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.
