Darren Jones 22nd Jan 2024

A.W Lymns were truly fantastic when dealing with our father’s recent passing. From the first phone call and all the way through to the day of his funeral they were very supportive and guided us through the process. Highly recommend 

Jackie Sheppard 24th Nov 2023

I cannot fault the services received from A W Lymn. From the first day I walked in, a broken person, I was guided through the whole process from start to finish, I felt that my beloved was treated with utmost care and dignity, and for that I am super grateful.. Losing your loved.ones, is never easy, but the staff at.Lynn's ( especially Kaitlan) helped me tremendously, even after the funeral, the care continues, giving me a call to see how I was. In fact I am now looking at arranging my own with them. Thank you.

    I cannot fault the service from A.W. Lymn. From start to finish everything ran like clockwork. For someone so young Kaitlan was brilliant, she was caring and compassionate to not only myself and my family but also to my husband. Everyone at Lymns took great care of him for which we are eternally grateful. I would highly recommend A.W. Lymn, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you, Mrs E Nason

  • 5 Jessica Clayton-Smith 27th Jan 2023

    The funeral was for my mum who passed away just after Christmas, and AW Lymn on Osmaston Park couldn’t have been more helpful. Mark went above and beyond to help me and my family during this awful time, even giving me advice on elements unrelated to the funeral directly, pointing me in the right direction for a number of things. He was kind, understanding and extremely patient.

    The service itself was beautiful, the celebrant was requested by myself as she carried out my Gran’s funeral a few years before: Andrea Garlick. She was well spoken, compassionate and made the whole thing flow very smoothly.

    I highly recommend this company to anyone who has lost a loved one, and would use them again.

    A.W. Lymn, Osmaston Park Team replied
    Dear Jessica, Thank you for your kind words, I was honoured to be able to help you and your family at such a difficult time. I am pleased that my support was helpful to you, and I am only at the end of the telephone if you need me for anything. I will pass on your kind words to Andrea Garlick, and I am sure she will appreciate them as I have.
    Take care, kind regards,
    Mark
  • 5 Winifred Vickers 25th Dec 2022

    I could not fault any part of the funeral arrangements. Despite the fact that I created a problem myself this was dealt with very professionally and a different path was highlighted. Nothing was too much trouble and the whole process felt very personal. Every staff member I came into contact with was very polite and those who attended the removal and funeral treated my loved one with reverence. The funeral itself went without a hitch and the attendees all had high praise for the smooth operation where everyone knew what their role was and carried it out with precision.

    A.W. Lymn, Osmaston Park Team replied
    It truly was an honour for me to be able to help you Winifred, and all your family at such a difficult and sad time.
    It was so lovely to get to know a little about Roger and to visit your home and see his train/smoking room for myself.
    I hope that if ever any of you want to pop in and say hello, it would be lovely to see you, and I will make sure the kettle is on and we have time for a chat. My thoughts are very much with you all now, and in the future. Mark.

    Dear Bali and family, I thank you all for entrusting myself and A.W. Lymn to take care of your father’s funeral arrangements and I was honoured to be with you all at such a sad and difficult time. It was my privilege to share the memories you all have of clearly a very special man, just looking at the photographs you shared throughout his service, the words that were spoken and the amount of people that attended to say a final goodbye, is testament to the lives he touched. Thank you for your kind words, they are really appreciated, and I am here if you need me to support you all in any way. Kindest regards, Mark.

  • 5 Evripides Evriviades 13th Nov 2021

    All arrangements were impeccable. Can't speak more highly about Mark Chapman who took all the hassle away from Family in the build up to the funeral. He was patient, understanding and thoroughly professional.
    On the day of the funeral Jackie led proceedings and again everything ran like clockwork and very smoothly. We cannot thank Lymns enough for their service to our family.

    A.W. Lymn, Osmaston Park Team replied
    Jackie and I would like to thank you for taking the time to write this review and for your kind words. I know it was an honour for myself and Jackie to be able to help you at such a difficult time and being able to make things a little easier for you.
    I will always treasure my own memories of both Neofitos and Katina and will continue to support you in any way I can.
    We again thank you for your kind words. Mark.
