Very professional Dan was helpful and compassionate  listened to what we wanted  kept me informed every step of the way and did a wonderful job of giving my mum a lovely funeral. we would highly recommend  them . The flowers that we ordered through them was stunning as well . 

Dennis Young 17th Jan 2020

Excellent service couldn’t fault them. They are very professional, caring and understanding. I have used them both in Nottingham and now in Derby.

Lesley Needham 12th Jan 2020

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.

    My brother and I could not fault the service offered by A.W.Lymn. Right from the very first phone call to Derek through to the actual day of the funeral in which Angela was so compassionate and professional. We were especially pleased to discover that our dad would be taking his final car journey in a silver RR which was absolutely stunning along with the 3 other cars. Thank you Angela and your team you made us very happy that we gave dad the very best.

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.
