  • 5 Barbara Elaine Hall 27th Feb 2021

    It was a wonderful time from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble for Jonathan and I was made to feel relaxed about the whole thing. The video we had made was fantastic and I’m so pleased that I used this service. It was wonderful to watch afterwards and for family members from afar who could not attend to be able to watch the whole ceremony. Everything was just perfect and dad would have loved the whole thing. We really did him proud with Lymns  help,care and advice. I could  not have wished for more. What could have been a traumatic time turned out to be a wonderful, warm experience. Thankyou all so much. Elaine Hall

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Elaine, we are really grateful to you for taking the time to leave this kind review. It was a privilege to be asked to help you and your family through this difficult time and I am particularly pleased that you were delighted with the video service. Thank you and take care, Wendy & Jonathan.

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.
