    Hard to contact 

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to discuss the contact issues with me personally. As you are now aware a part of our telephone system had broken, and your calls were therefore going to our other offices around Nottinghamshire. I can only apologise for this, as I appreciate that on the afternoon before your husband's funeral that left you feeling un-nerved. I am only pleased that the funeral itself went well, and that the staff locally looked after things professionally for you. Thank you.

    We would like to Thankyou all so much for your professionalism,  kindness and respect on Friday for the Farewell of Margaret Metheringham.   The compassion of your staff is second to none.   Little details like ‘Remember Me’ feather pouch and also the little purse with returned earrings are the perfect touch.  I will always remember the stubborn Dove who wanted to stay a little longer and the way the gentleman coaxed her out of the tree.   Will recommend always.   Thanks again.  Sarah-Jayne Beard.  

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am really glad that the little touches meant so much to you and your family at this difficult time and am pleased that the dove staying a bit longer helped raise a smile and leave a happy memory. Thank you, Jonathan.

  • 5 Claire Spencer 23rd Jan 2020

    We as a family cannot fault the way we were treated with both my mother's funeral back in 2002, and then more recently with my father's funeral. Right from the beginning they acted very professionally but at the same time sympathetic...nothing was too much trouble...we were never rushed, we were given plenty of time deciding on what we wanted and we felt that our loss was theirs. Although there was sadness on the actual funeral day, there was also tears of joy just because of the way we were treated.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this wonderful review. We are glad that you received the same high level of service from us at the time of arranging your father's funeral as you did when you arranged your mother's, and that the team were both professional and sympathetic. Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Jonathan has asked that I pass on his personal thanks to you for this lovely review. He is glad that his support and care made such a difference to you during this sad time and that he was able to help you create a service that was a fitting tribute to Mum.

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.
