Everything about A W Lym was very professional and personal from start to finish. We would recommend them if anyone we knew needed these services. We have nothing negative to say about anything they did for us and felt like a weight was lifted when they organised everything, which went perfectly on the day !

  • 5 Victoria Wright 12th Mar 2017

    I had used Spondon Lymn`s on a previous occasion the year before when my Dad passed away.This was dealt with by Fiona Hall .From start to finish with regards to my dad were way beyond excellent and when my darling son was tragically killed following a car crash I didn`t hestitate for one second as to who I would entrust to look after him .. Fiona is the most professional ,sincere and friendly people I have the pleasure to know ,she was most sincere and sympathetic to what was an horrendous situation .This is the hardest thing in my entire life ,yet without Fiona we wouldn`t have been able to give Andrew the amazing send off he received ,even down to her arranging our custom made coffin for his friends to sign . She lovingly cared for him and stayed right to the end riding the Hyabusa which delivered him to his final resting place aided by Matthew Lymn Rose .She even handled the huge biker escorts without batting an eyelid and everything went to plan perfectly . I love her dearly and couldn`t have got through this without her help xx

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Initially I would say how sorry we are that it has been necessary for you to require our services twice in such a short period of time, especially given the tragic circumstances with your Son. We are however grateful to you for this fantastic review. We are pleased that Fiona was able to provide such great support with her professional, sincere and friendly manner, and was able to accommodate all your wishes making a funeral that was a fitting tribute to Andrew. Thank you.
  • 5 Mrs Rosemary Woodard 2nd Mar 2017

    Fiona and Kevin made sure everyone feelings were catered for, we were well informed what to expect and everything went well.timing was spot on and no one felt rushed,they even arranged for a vicar of our choice to officiate the service. Well done and thank you everyone Dad would have been so proud. I will be in touch regarding a prepaid funeral plan for myself at some point

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this kind review, we are pleased that Kevin and Fiona were able to arrange a service that Dad would have been proud of, and are glad that you felt so well looked after and informed throughout.

  • 5 Mrs Betty Woolley 20th May 2016

    A big thank you to all but especially Fiona Hall who supported and guided us all the way from the first time we met.  Having never had to organise a funeral i can honestly say without her i don't know how we would have managed.  She was so professional and yet we felt she gave such a personal touch.  Nothing was ever too much trouble and provided answers for us straight away.  She was so supportive when we went to visit dad in the chapel of rest and he was presented so perfect and looked peaceful. Everything was taken care of on the day of the funeral and a big thank you to Kevin Hall and his team for their professionalism.   I know this was an upsetting time in our lives but we would truly recommend their services to anyone. Kind regards Betty, Amanda, Tracy, Karen and Family xx

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.
