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.

I had no idea how to arrange a funeral. I didn't need to worry. Fiona made it all more bearable after the death of my husband in a tragic accident. she was natural, friendly, while maintaining professionalism. I felt I could ask anything, no matter how trivial or stupid I thought it may be. She would always give me time to talk. It felt like our family were special. The day came and everything went smoothly and again personally with the driver slowing down when we passed friends who had come out to pay their respects. Thankyou Fiona and team.

Linda Paling 16th Jun 2020

    I wish to thank Fiona Hall for her care and support and help during what has been a heartbreaking experience. My Mum planned a beautiful funeral sadly because of the Covid19 crisis the funeral was not as Mum had planned which was devastating. Fiona was so helpful and did what she could to help and I am so grateful for that beautiful bunch of yellow roses you found for her. I meant so much Thank you xx

  • 5 Darren Parkin 17th Feb 2020

    A W Lymn did an exceptional job for our mum and the family. From the first contact we made with them, Lymn's were extremely compassionate and operated with the upmost professionalism. The whole process went smoothly and the service itself was perfect, a fitting tribute to mum. We are extremely grateful to Nigel Lymn-Rose and Fiona Hall for the service they gave us. Adding that personnel touch goes a long way. We would certainly recommend A W Lymn to everyone. We can't thank them enough. Darren, Melissa, Wayne and Ian

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind comments about our family company and our employees such as Fiona. As you aware Lynda’s brother John worked with us for over thirty years and was both a colleague and valued friend. I know that he would have wanted me to be with you personally on the day of the funeral and I am pleased therefore that everything was to your satisfaction. Thank you.

  • 5 Melanie Towers 28th Nov 2019

    A very caring company, understanding the wishes of the family without over explanation at a very sensitive time. The whole funeral service put together which included celebrant Sally Ward has been commented on by a number of the mourners as being one of the most light funerals they had been to. A true celebration of Dads life. . . Which is what he would want. Excellent service from A W Lymn (Spondon) .

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was my pleasure to take good care of you all, and to make sure that Dad was looked after the way you wanted and given the final journey that he deserved. Thank you, Fiona.

    From our initial enquiry through to the end of the funeral, everything was faultless. The staff were perfectly professional yet very friendly and helpful. We have used Lymn's service before and had no hesitation in choosing to use them again.

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.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am sorry that I have had to look after you and your family on so many occasions recently but hope that over this time you have felt that I have become as much as part of your family as I feel you are part of mine. I'm very flattered that you wanted me to look after everything personally for you and am pleased that everything went. Thank you. Fiona
