Excellent service. Very caring and informative. Relieves the pressure that you may experience.

Nicholas Gillott 5th Apr 2021

From the first contact to beyond the service day, the support and advice given by the team at Ilkeston has been invaluable. Having never been through the process before the thought of everything ahead onto of losing Mum was overwhelming but Nicky, Michelle and Mick made each step bearable and went above and beyond on each query or request. Introducing us to Tracey Matthews was a blessing as she helped us remember the good times during the pain and everyone commented on how much the celebration she gave reflected Mum exactly. We still have a way to go before Mum is with her family but with Nicky and Tracey's help we know it will be the best

Jonathan Doughty 16th Mar 2021

From the first instance the support and direction from AW Lymn has been exceptional. Nicola has ensured that all aspects were covered and ensured a dignified approach with my Mum at all times. Mick and his team provided a very professional support on the day, reassuring and couldn’t ask for anything else on the day. Tracey our curator ensured that the day was all about our Mum, from initial contact to home visit where there was a genuine interest and warmth to get to know and during the service that heart felt warmth continued and we had the service we so wanted and Mum would have wanted about her life. Highly recommend and we thank you as a family.
