    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.

  • 4 Leonard Shaw 17th Dec 2019

    The staff at the Mansfield branch of Lymn's were extremely helpful in arranging the funeral, especially as I do not live in the local area and needed to do much of the organisation by e-mail / telephone. On the day the team made sure everything went smoothly from transport to the church, the funeral service , transfer to the crematorium and finally venue for the wake.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that the team made the arrangement process as simple as possible for you particularly given the fact you do not live locally, and are pleased that everything ran according to plan on the day. We do however note your 4* rating and would welcome any feedback you might so that we can improve this to 5*'s.
  • 5 Kerrie Downs 17th Dec 2019

    A W Lymn are absolutely five star. Their service and standards are impeccable. They looked after our beautiful mother so well while she was in their care. I was allowed to do her hair and makeup myself ready for her final journey. What a journey that was in those immaculate, beautiful Rolls Royce Phantoms. The staff are amazing, from David who helped us make the arrangements to David and the gents who took mum and us in the cars. Couldn't wish for nicer people, so professional and mum couldn't of had a better final journey than what lymns provided. I can not recommend them enough or thank them enough.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are grateful to you for taking the time to leave this very kind and detailed review and for your five star rating. It is lovely to hear how well all the team at Mansfield looked after you and to see how pleased you were with the vehicles which took Mum on her final journey. Thank you.

    David Clarke at the Rainworth branch made a very difficult time much, much easier for us.  He’s so caring and compassionate, an expert in his profession and an absolute gentleman.  I genuinely don’t think we could ever thank him enough for everything he did for us. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this wonderful review and in particular your very kind words about David's caring, compassionate and professional nature. I have of course passed this review on to him and he has asked me to mention that it was a privilege to take care of you during this sad time. Thank you.

    David and his staff conducted themselves with dignity and professionalism through the whole process of my dad's funeral. I cannot speak highly enough of the way they communicated with us as a family, ensuring that all our needs were met. Having a funeral director like David takes the stress out of a very emotional and difficult time. Thank you again.

    My family and I were very pleased with the excellent services provided by A.W. Lymn regarding the funeral arrangements for our Mum. From the initial enquiry, through to the funeral day itself, all the staff we dealt with were sympathetic and courteous, and the service provided was thoroughly professional, yet personal. We were guided through everything, making a difficult and emotional time easier to deal with. We would definitely recommend A.W. Lymn.

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.

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?
