    Thank you so much for your kind words Mrs Farr, it was an honour to arrange your Mother’s funeral service for you and your family. Tina.
  • 5 Andrew Hyslop 9th Mar 2021

    I chose A W Lymn to conduct my late father’s funeral on Monday, 8th March, 2021.  Our funeral organiser was Tina Clay who was fantastic and so professional to deal with from our very first conversation. In fact Tina went above and beyond in the planning and delivering of exactly what we wanted. She made the whole process so easy.  Andy the Funeral Director was outstanding. What a great guy and so professional.  We thought the two times that Andy walked in front of the hearse were an extra special touch, as was the pausing outside of my Mum and Dad’s former bungalow.  Andy and our driver, Martin were very compassionate in the way in which they looked after my Mum. Both quickly put us all at ease. and Martin’s driving was excellent.  The Chapel was offered to us for the Service and was greatly appreciated due to the cold and inclement weather.  We thought the service was excellent and thank Tina for her choice of Minister, Chris Carnall, who delivered such a fantastic tribute. I also thank Tina for the provision of the iPod and music. Also for creating the lovely Orders of Service. To finalise, Tina, Andy and the whole team were first class and I wish to thank each and every one of you for organising, managing and conducting my Dad’s funeral so professionally.  I would most definitely recommend A W Lymn without reservation.  Andy Hyslop

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Mr Hyslop, we are extremely grateful to you for taking the time to leave this glowing review of the service provided by Tina, Andy and the rest of the team at Mansfield. It is gratifying to read that between them they were able to make this sad occasion a positive one for you, allowing you the opportunity to remember your father fondly. We would also thank you for your recommendation as this means a lot to us. Thank you once again.

  • 4 Peter Turner 23rd Oct 2020

    The only thing that dissappointed was that the celebrant did not say that Hannah Winterton could not sing live because of covid, which I think should have been said. Otherwise everything was very good thank you Carol.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to review our service, we are glad that overall you were pleased with everything that we did for you. Unfortunately the restrictions in place in regards to coronavirus meant that live singing was not allowed but we regret that you were disappointed that this was not mentioned during the service. Thank you.

  • 5 Jennifer Butler 19th Aug 2020

    Everyone at A. W. Lymn were polite, respectful and compassionate as we arranged our mum's funeral. Tina dealt promptly with our many questions, phone calls and emails with patience and we wish to thank her so much for everything she did. Andy who was with us at the Crematorium was so kind and he organised everything for us so it all went smoothly. Everything had been made more difficult due to Covid 19 but A. W. Lymn did all they could so we were able to have the best funeral we could for our mum.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    That you so much Mrs Goodwin for your kind words, myself and my colleagues really do appreciate you taking the time to leave this lovely review. We are glad that we were able to give the best funeral possible for your mum despite the restrictions with COVID. Thank you, Tina

  • 4 Marlene Steudel 26th Apr 2020

    Very good service in  extremely difficult circumstances at present with the Coronavirus. Tina very helpful and considerate. Would like to see dad's obituary on line be included rather than having to 'search'. Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words particularly in relation to the helpful and considerate service provided by Tina during this diffiuclt time. We are sorry that you were dissapointed that you had to search for your Dad's online obituary. Normally all obituaries would appear on the first page of this facility but unfortunately, due ot the current Coronavirus situation, their was a large number of online obituaries which regrettably meant that you had to search to find this.
