    Sue, it was my pleasure to look after you and I am glad that I was able to help you create a fitting tribute to Mum. Thanks, Fiona.
  • 5 David Brown 22nd Mar 2021

    From the very start ,when my father first decided to arrange his own funeral, Lymn’s, represented by Kevin Hall, showed how efficient and caring their staff coul be. My father was questioned carefully, politely and his wishes were teased out so pleasantly that my father throughly enjoyed the experience. As soon as he passed away, Fiona Hall, from the Spondon office, carried out her duties, carefully, tactfully and with efficiency. Despite Corvid19, the funeral and cremation were booked and organised very quickly indeed. The Form of Service booklet was designed and printed ,quickly enough to get 50 posted to family and friends before the actual date. The booklet was beautifully presented and received praise from everyone who received it. The Cortège arrived on time and the Staff at Briar Close House were delighted to be able to pay their respects, despite themselves being totally ‘locked down’. Both Fiona and Kevin liaised with the minister, Rev Cliff Winfield, and the resulting service, was the very best ‘send off’ my father could have had in the restricted circumstances. The Lymn’s Rolls Royce was immaculate, just how my father wishes to ‘go on his last journey’.  His words. From my wife and I thank you Lymn’s.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

    Sadly this is the second time we have used Lymns funeral services, but again they have been amazing, I have received excellent support and feel happy that they will be caring for our dad on his final journey. Especially Kevin, he has ensured everything has gone smoothly and kept us up to date on all that his happening, as it has been extremely challenging due to the current situation we are in..... thank-you again. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are sorry that this is not the first time you have had to arrange a funeral with us, but we are glad that in spite of the current situation the team at Spondon once again offered excellent support and ensured that everything ran smoothly for you. Thank you.

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.
