They were excellent and went out of their way to sort things out for us.

Christopher Burrows 28th Apr 2024

Very caring and professional, we were really happy with the service provided

Joanne Booth 24th Apr 2024

We were delighted with the care and respect shown to our brother from the first moment of contact.  The attention to detail was second to none. They produced a stunning order of service and looked after us on a very emotional day. We totally recommend Lymn's particularly Michelle and Julia. They reassured our brother prior to his death and consoled and supported us afterwards. Love Jean, Jill & Joanne xxx

    Dear Joanne and family, Its not very often I get to meet the person who passed away, but meeting Phil and yourself last year when discussing the pre-paid funeral, I feel like I have been on the journey with you all to make sure all Phil’s wishes were met to his high standards. Phil’s larger than life presence and his big cheeky smile and the twinkle in his eyes, its easy to see why he will be so dearly missed. Thank you again for allowing me to look after you all and on the day you really did him proud. Thank you again from Michelle and Julia and all at A W Lymn Ilkeston.
  • 5 Samantha Taft 20th Apr 2024

    A. W. Lymn’s at Ilkeston were amazing from start to finish. I had no idea what I was doing, and I was looked after step by step and everything was explained really clearly. I made initial plans which needed to be changed a few days before the funeral, Michelle was amazing in doing so. Nothing was too much of a problem. All the stress was taken off me at this already difficult time. Would highly recommend. Thank you so much. X

  • 4 Mark Haslam 18th Nov 2023

    It's puzzling me why was the coffin so long my mum was so tiny

    A.W. Lymn, Ilkeston Team replied
    Dear Mark and Donna,
    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for the Ilkeston Branch. I'd like to offer an explanation to your question regarding the size of your Mum’s coffin. We allow space within the coffin, so it is not a tight fit, with an allowance for a nice pillow and padding at head and foot end and for the frill interior. I hope this puts your mind to rest of why the coffin appeared bigger than your Mums size – Michelle.
  • 5 Arthur Young 18th Oct 2023

  • 5 Deb Farnsworth 12th Oct 2023

    Michelle Ibbett at Ilkeston is the biggest credit to your company. I don’t know how I would have navigated this whole process without her. Sensitive caring and full of perfect ideas. She’s been a blanket wrapped around me and will stay in touch with her forever.
    On the note of the company, your finishing touches are second to none. Everything is presented in a beautiful way. Mike the funeral director on the day was incredible as we’re his team. The day went exactly as planned and I can’t thank you enough.
    From me and all Mikeys family a massive thank you and well done and will be recommending your services to everyone who will listen 🩵🩵🩵

    A.W. Lymn, Ilkeston Team replied
    Dear Debbie, I would just like to thank you for such a wonderful review. It really was a privilege and honour to help you and your family through such a difficult time and assisting with making the arrangements for Mikey. The choices you made fitted Mikey's personality and really made his funeral a true tribute for him, for a life cut so short. I have passed on your words to Mick and the team who all pass on their thanks to you. From Michelle and all the team
