    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.

    The service we received from the first time I met Angela to go through details to the actual day of the funeral of my husband Ken was superb. Angela was very thorough and very kind to me and my girls. The compassion she showed to us at this very distressing time was outstanding. Angela talked everything through with us that would happen on the day leaving nothing out, so there was no surprises to upset us.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your very kind words, particularly in regards to Angela and the support she gave to you and your girls. We are pleased that she explained everything to you and treated you with kindness and compassion, and she joins me in thanking you for taking the time to review her service.

  • 5 Lesley & Richard Corke 14th Feb 2018

    From the first contact by telephone asking for advice on costs, through meetings to understand our wishes, Angela proved helpful and knowledgeable and provided useful advice on the process of registering a death. More than that, up to the day, she was always available in person, by phone or by email to resolve queries and gently remind about forgotten options. It would have been so much harder without her. On the day, Derek was prompt, polite and very respectful towards my dear mother. Quietly guiding us through the protocols at the crematorium. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company most highly for the professional and respectful way in which my mother's funeral was directed. At a very sad time your team have left us with happy memories. Lesley & Richard Corke

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this kind and detailed review in regards to the professional and respectful service offered by both Angela and Derek during the sad occasion of arranging your mother's funeral. They have both asked me to pass on their personal thanks to you and have said that they are glad that their service enabled you to make some happy final memories.
