A very helpful service, which was caring and responsive removing the strain from organising the funeral. They identified a wonderful Minister, who was very thoughtful.

    I can't thank Mark Chapman (and Julie) enough for their support, compassion and professionalism whilst helping me through the difficulties of arranging my late husband's funeral. Many compromises had to be overcome due to the Covid 19 situation and the help I received around this has been invaluable and although most of the arrangements had to be done via the telephone or email, I never once felt unsupported with decisions and choices which had to be to be made.

The respect and professionalism was 110% at all times no matter how much of a difficult time it is. I can't thank Mark enough for being there every step of the way, no matter the hurdles we all had to jump with everything going on. So thank you for giving my dad a sent off he deserved.

I would like to pass on my thanks to you and the family for your patience and understanding at this time due to the changes we have all had to put in place to keep everyone safe, but still be able to celebrate David’s life. I hope that you all stay safe and if you need me for anything then just call me, and I will help you in any way I can.

  • 5 Samantha Boiling 23rd Aug 2019

    Mark, Steve and all at AW Lymns gave my Dad the best send off I could have wished for. I had no idea what to do as I had not done this before. Mark took me through it all step by step with so much care and thought it was so much more personal than I could have imagined. I can't thank you all enough. You did my Dad proud and helped me do the same.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Please pass on my personal thanks to Samantha for allowing me and A.W. Lymn to ensure her dad’s final journey was all she wanted it to be.   I am pleased that I managed to help her create a fitting funeral  for her dad along with Stephen Wakeling and ensure he returned to his home town of Nottingham.   It was an honour for me to be there with her and the family throughout, and to be given a little insight to the wonderful man she called dad.   I hope, if she is passing the office, she knows she is welcome to call in, and that my door is always open and I can always pop the kettle on. Thank you, Mark

    From day 1 Mark Chapman was fantastic. He helped us through one of saddest times in our lives. Nothing was to much trouble. The service for my dad was amazing thanks to Mark and the A.W.Lymn team.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I cannot thank you enough for your kind words, and it was truly an honour for me to help you plan Mr Hague’s Funeral.

It was a pleasure to get to know you all and to make this very difficult time a little easier. Thank you, Mark.

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.
