Very professional at one of the hardest times. Even last minute requests were no trouble. Would highly recommend. 

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.

Kim Robinson 15th Jan 2020

    We cannot recommend Lymns Mansfield Woodhouse highly enough. The support, guidance, compassion and professionalism are fantastic. During the difficult time of losing my husband the service and funeral was exactly what he would have wanted. Small attention to detail from Lymns made the experience rememberable. Without doubt the best company we could have chosen. So professional but also personable. Thank you to all involved.

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.
