Can't fault the service we received from Angela and the whole team at Lymn Littleover. They made it as smooth as possible and were equally sensitive and professional to all needs. Thank you x

  • 5 Caroline Foster 13th Jul 2017

    We have been very impressed indeed with Angela Knight of the Littleover office. She is professional and appropriate, personable and likeable, and she has very good attention to detail. Nothing is too much trouble for her. We shall definitely use A.W. Lymn (preferably the Littleover office if that is still the appropriate office), when we need a funeral service again. We have been similarly impressed with Kevin Hall. His guidance at our initial meeting with him was invaluable. The only thing he could improve is the tailcoat he wore on the day of our father's funeral. It looked as if it needed either a good clean or to be replaced with a new one. With our thanks. Caroline and Tim

    Thank you for your kind words about Angela and the service she provided, we are pleased that you found her to be professional as well as personable and likeable. Angela has asked me to pass on that is is her honour to care for the families who choose to use her services and she is touched that you have taken the time to let her know how you feel she performed at this sad time. Thank you also for your feedback on Kevin's tailcoat, I will ensure that this is looked at.

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.
