Their service was excellent from first contacting them to arrange things. They kept in touch and provided updates on proceedings throughout The staff were all very professional and understanding through out the process and on the day Jonathon and the team gave a very professional service to us from start to finish and getting us back home. We have used Lyms now on several occasions after losing other family members and will continue to so do as we've received excellent service on each occasion. Regards Russ Marshall and family.

  • 5 Drostie Tame 23rd Aug 2021

    Losing a loved one is never easy but with Lymn's in charge of mum's funeral I knew we were in safe hands. So many positive's, its hard to know where to start. Wendy was kind and sensitive whilst being professional. The Chapel of Rest was just right - the perfect setting to pay one's last respect's. On the day of the funeral I was so nervous I thought I'd never get through it but Jonathan was amazing and gave me every confidence that all would be well and it was. The hearse was stunning. I really felt mum travelled in style to her final resting place. As was our car, both were Rolls Royce's. Wendy matched us perfectly to a wonderful celebrant - Anja who conducted mum's service perfectly. I can now look back on that sad day with fond memories thanks to Lymn's.

  • 5 Susan Bestwick 20th Aug 2021

    My mum’s funeral was conducted very sympathetically and all the staff were excellent in their approach. The services by Nicky both at church and the crematorium were personal to mum and even the car we were able to choose for her was perfect I would like to thank Lymns for making a sad day much more bearable. Thanks to Wendy for her kindness and understanding and especially to David who was a great comfort to both me and my sister

    A.W. Lymn, Mansfield Woodhouse Team replied
    It was an honour to support you both at the time of the arrangements and on the day itself and I am glad I was able to make this sad time a little more bearable for you. I am also glad that Bracken was able to help lead mum's funeral procession with me. Thank you, David.

  • 2 Kevin Anthony 3rd Jul 2021

    We were promised personal attention whilst that person then went on vacation without telling us, then we were passed to a new person each day! I felt I was doing all the chasing for arrangements When I rang to pay the invoice they could not find it and asked me how much I owed them! One guy called Johnathan was really good but got an overall impression that it was more a commercial business than a personalized funeral director. I will not use this company again.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    I very much regret that your experience of our family company proved lacking on this occasion. Unfortunately, although we were aware that that you had some issues we did not know the detail before this review. Matthew, our Managing Director, called you a number of times to discuss your concerns but these remained unanswered and the voicemails he left requesting a call back did not receive a response. Having now investigated the information contained in the review I would record my personal apologies that an error arose concerning a telephone number and that the funeral arranger overseeing the funeral unfortunately, for family reasons, was absent for three days without informing you. I thank you for your praise of Jonathan who dealt with matters during her absence and he tells me that the issue with the invoice arose because our accounts staff are still working from home until such time as the government releases us from the Covid restrictions. Thank you and once again we are sorry. Nigel Lymn Rose, Company Chairman
  • 5 Jane Emberson 27th Jun 2021

We would also like to say thank you to our Celebrant Adam whose kind words made the service special.

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.

Read more

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.
