  • 5 Matthew Parkes 22nd May 2017

    Friendly, good service. Reasonably priced. Most importantly, on the day they were very professional and reassuring. My father paid for a funeral in advance and all of that was handled smoothly. My only minor gripe was the first visit after my father passed away, when we went in to finalise all the details of the burial and a junior member of staff (who was obviously not quite as polished as the others) used phrases like 'back-filling' instead of 'covering' as the others had, which actually felt quite insensitive. But overall still 5 stars.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for you detailed review and generally high appraisal of the service provided by the team at Ilkeston. We are pleased that everything was handled smoothly for you Father when he made the arrangements and that you found them to be professional yet friendly more recently. We also appreciate your feedback in regard to some inappropriate terminology being used by a junior member of staff, and we are sorry that this tarnished your overall view of our family company.
  • 5 Richard Reeve 20th May 2017

    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank A.W. Lymn,they provided a fantastic service and made everything so easy at such a sad and hard time. We had Julia Carty come round to mums house,she had previously spoken to mum and mum had expressed her wishes which Julia then explained to us. Without Julia I think myself and the family would have found organising the funeral very hard.  I can't thank A.W.lymns and all the staff enough for what they did before,during and after the process.  Many thanks  Rich Reeve 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Rich, thank you for taking the time to leave this positive review. We are pleased that Julia's organisation and your Mum's pre-planning meant that all the arrangements were taken care of for you at this sad and hard time. Julia would also like to thank you for your kind words and has said that she was honoured to have looked after Mum for you at this sad time.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

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.
