Derby Funeral Directors


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when someone dies?

When someone dies you need to get a Medical Certificate of Cause of Death from a doctor, register their death and choose a funeral director to arrange their funeral. The Registration Office will give you a Death Certificate and Certificate for Burial or Cremation (GR021 in Northern Ireland).

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

I chose Lymns as I have used them before on the occasions of the deaths of my parents and have always been satisfied with the service that they have provided so armed with that knowledge it seemed an easy decision to make. I was proved right as everything on the day went to plan and there were several comments made on the day as to how well everything gone. I felt everything went as well as can be expected and the staff involved carried their roles really well and even though it was a very sad occasion for me it was all carried in a personal and sympathetic manner. I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to all the staff that have been involved since Anita passed away on the 8th of October.
