A W Lymns were absolutely amazing during the recent death of my 29 year old daughter. They were compassionate, understanding and kind they saw to every detail and made sure that everything ran smoothly. They way that Andy was with the deceased 9 year old daughter will stay with us for ever. They truly were amazing and we can't thank them enough for helping us through such a difficult time in our life's. They have never once demanded payments or requested money, even after the event. They have gone out their way to ensure we have the appropriate time to get our heads straight following a series of sad events. We have nothing but love for lymns and would highly recommend them to others should they need to use such a service. Our heart felt thanks to Elaine, Andy and all the team at Lymns you are truly a fantastic team and amazing and the job you do. With love Angela, Hayley, olivia and all the family of the late Rachel Louise Burton xx

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.
