    Having had contact with Dan, Neil and Kevin in the arranging and order of the day, I can only comment on how professional the team were and most helpful at all times. At a very sad time for my family the work they put in behind the scenes was most appreciated.

    The team were fantastic and went out of their way in not only a difficult time but a complicated one, even staying late into the night to ensure a visit to the Chapel of rest to see Dad for those travelling long distances.
    Thank-you for not only doing an amazing job here in Derby but also supporting our needs in preparing for a service in Wales.

    I could not recommend A W Lymn highly enough.  Right from our first interaction they showed empathy and respect and were clear on what was going to happen and our options.  This was the case for every single employee who we had interaction with.

    It has been an incredibly difficult time for my family and I after my dad passed onto glory in Nov 2021 but Dan at A.W. Lymn made it more bearable for us. He handled everything from start to finish professionally. He was compassionate in his service delivery, he was patient and he was super helpful and organised. He was simply exceptional. Not once did I doubt that things would not be ready on time even if we had less than 4 weeks to plan the funeral. It was smooth sailing and even where there were a few mishaps, he sorted it quickly. My dad was treated with dignity till the very end. The undertakers? Wow!!! Super respectful, their conduct touched me in ways I cant describe. I am so grateful and although I hope never to use them again, I will strongly recommend their services if you need one. Thank you Dan, thank you A.W, Lymn!!! God bless you all and may you be treated with the same dignity in life and in death as you treated my dear Dad. THANK YOU!!! 

    A.W. Lymn, Littleover Team replied

Lymn to help take care of the arrangements for your father’s funeral and taking the time to post this very kind and detailed review and for your recommendation of our services.

    I couldn’t have asked for more from A.W Lymn. From the way they helped me to organise things, to the dignified and highly professional manner they carried out the funeral.

  • 5 Lynda Smith 24th Apr 2021

    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.
