Everything from start to finish was amazing- great thanks to Fiona. Every single detail Fiona did with compassion and care. In the last year myself and family used your services - can’t say enough of this fantastic woman she is so dedicated. Everything ran smooth on the day thanks to Fiona looking into every detail.

Wendy Alfrey 23rd Sep 2019

Sadly I have used Lymns funeral directors twice in the last 18months on both occasions Fiona Hall has been excellent, efficient compassionate and respectable she is a lovely credible person. A person whom I  can rely on to meet all of my wishes. I have no hesitation in recommending Lymns as a thoroughly professional company from start to finish.

    A fantastic send off for our mum. Fiona has been amazing from start to finish. She has been so kind and compassionate and even helped us out at weekends as we live so far away. We couldn’t of got through it without her. One of our relations commented that it was the loveliest funeral they had been to. So thank you so much. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was my pleasure to help you sort everything out especially when we had the contrast of mum collecting fairies and loving Chelsea Football Club!

    Fiona made the whole process very easy and comforting at a very sensitive time. Her easygoing nature helped make dealing with my bereavement easier by keeping n regular contact as I was based in Coventry. The day of the funeral was efficiently dealt with by Kevin and the bearers. I want to pass on my thanks to everyone 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Fiona has asked me to pass on that it was her pleasure to have helped you and your family during this sensitive time and Kevin would like me to thank you for your kinds words and has confirmed that he will pass your praise onto the team that supported him on the day. Thank you.
