Kevin Boot 19th May 2024

The service provided for my late mother and previous to that,my father was genuinely first class. Communication throughout was always very quick. We were provided with exactly what we wanted from David with no pressure whatsoever to upsell any part of the service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend A W Lymn and David was an excellent representative for the Mansfield branch. First class all round.

  • 5 Kevin Stokes 12th Feb 2024

    Excellent service from start to end. All you need to do is meet with the team to discuss your wishes and they will do everything else. Very simple process. A very special mention to David Clarke and Wendy Walker for taking us through the process and assisting with everything we asked for. The service at the crematorium was beautiful and helped ease the pain of the loss of our Dad.
    Jean Sharpe was the Celebrant that David recommended and she did an excellent job at the initial meeting and at the service.
    Finally, more special mentions to the team of drivers who ensured that we got to the service despite heavy snow and road closures caused by accidents. They were very calm throughout the journey and got us there safely.
    Best Regards from Dawn, John, Kevin, Joanne, Richard, Laura, William and Samuel.

    A.W. Lymn, Mansfield Team replied
    Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. I am glad that I was able to bring you comfort during the arrangement process and that everything went smoothly on the day despite the challenges of the snow. Wendy.
