Neil Bullivant 31st Aug 2021

The job of organising my brother's funeral was made so much more easy due to the care and attention of Fiona Hall. Firstly for getting Kev back to Derby , and then pointing us in the right direction throughout the whole process. I would also like to thank the Celebrant , Richard Marshall , who made a great job of keeping the service light-hearted but serious at the same time.I would have no hesitation in recommending A.W. Lymn to anyone who has the daunting task of arranging a funeral.Thanks a million. With much gratitude Neil Bullivant 31/08/2021.

    “Excellent, Professional and Caring Service.” I contacted Fiona at Lymns in Spondon after an online search to organise my mum’s funeral. I found that A.W. Lymn’s online brochure was very informative and reassuring, at a time that can be very overwhelming. Also my sister, who doesn’t live locally, was able to be involved in any choices made. Fiona could not have been more helpful and compassionate and she understood what we as a family wanted for my mum. She kept us fully informed at every stage and took time to clarify all of the arrangements. I cannot thank Fiona enough for the support she provided during this difficult time. The day of the funeral went smoothly and was professionally organised, removing any stress. Everyone commented on what a lovely touch the rose petals were at the end, as a last goodbye. I would highly recommend A.W. Lymn of Spondon, if you require a professional, caring and compassionate service.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this positive and detailed review of the service provided by Fiona and her team at Spondon. For a long time we have appreciated the significance of having our full services brochure available online and during the pandemic this has become even more important. We are glad that on this occasion it allowed you and your sister to make all the decisions about the funeral with both of you having the full information to hand. Thank you also for your recommendation, this is greatly appreciated.

    My son and myself were very impressed by the service of the funeral directors of Lymn and Son of Spondon. They were very attentive with their service, their staff very well turned out and extremely caring, with coffin, flowers and funeral cars of the first order. I would highly recommend them. Dr Robert Hedley

    A.W. Lymn, Spondon Team replied
    I was honoured that you once again came to me to help you with the funeral arrangements of a family member and was really glad to be able to be there to support you at each stage of the process this time around. I wish you and the family all well. Thank you, Fiona.
  • 5 Joanne Groombridge 8th Apr 2021

    Fiona is was understanding and caring with my brother and mothers funerals that there was no second thought who to approach for my dad. She knew what we anted and made it happen. We can never thank you enough x

    A.W. Lymn, Spondon Team replied
    It was my pleasure to take care of your family once again, but also heavy on the heart as it was a bit of a shock when I received the first call. We all got on really well so I felt like part of the family so it was a honour for me to be able to make one of Ged’s main wishes come true even if it was for his final journey. I'm so pleased for him that he went out in style as he would have wanted. ♥ xx Take care of yourselves, Fiona.
  • 5 Gillian Thomas 23rd Mar 2021

    My Fathers funeral was planned to perfection; his family were very satisfied with all of the arrangements. Fiona in the Spondon office handled the whole process with the utmost professionalism, understanding and friendliness. She really is a special asset to A.W. Lymn.

    A.W. Lymn, Spondon Team replied
    I am so glad I had the pleasure of meeting you despite the current COVID restrictions and it was an honour for me to be able to look after you and to make sure that Derek was given the proudest send off. Thank you, Fiona.

    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.

    A.W. Lymn, Spondon Team replied
    It was an absolute pleasure to help guide you through the funeral arrangements for Horace and to learn so much about him. The thought and personalisation that went into the creation of the orders of service was really lovely and sending them out to those unable to attend the service so they could follow along with the live stream was a great touch. It was such as shame that his funeral was during my annual leave as I would have loved to have been personally involved but I am glad that we have had the opportunity to speak several times since. Please do remember that I am always here if there is anything else I can do for you. Thank you, Fiona.
  • 5 Paul Waldram 24th Feb 2021

    Fiona Hall from Lymns in Spondon, has been just totally wonderful in every aspect of the word, caring, considerate, thoughtful, reassuring, the word thankyou does not start to give the praise to Fiona, and all of her team who you dont see, but are all there, thankyou from Paul, Kris, and Danni

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was my pleasure to have been able to look after you all and to help make sure all the arrangements, including the little details, were right, from the very first phone call through to Mum’s final journey. You all did her proud! Fiona.
  • 5 Adrian Blurton 21st Feb 2021

    The help and support throughout and guidance has been outstanding. Adrian Blurton.

  • 5 Kate Tozer 1st Feb 2021

    The whole team at A W Lymn were professional, sensitive and helpful from start to finish including of course the planning of the funeral.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Kate, It was my pleasure to look after both you and your Dad. I am glad that despite the fact you had never had to arrange a funeral before I was able to guide you through the process to ensure your Dad had the best for his final journey. Thank you, Fiona.
  • 5 Ann Owen 29th Jan 2021

    I was very impressed, with the whole package that I had, the cars were impressive, and the ushers were fantastic and had a calming effect at a very emotional time, nothing was too much for them Fiona at the funeral parlour was very helpful and kind, and very helpful  in organising the funeral for me, so much so that things went very smoothly on the day. So my husband Brian had a lovely send off that he would have been proud of.                                Thank you                            Yours sincerely  Ruth Mawbey
