  • 5 Debbie Gibson 1st Jun 2021

    This is the first time i have had to organise a funeral and we dealt with David Clarke. He walked us through everything step by step and didn't try and sell us anything extra. He was genuine, empathetic and very professional. This made a very difficult time easier to cope with and organise. He is a credit to his profession and the company he works for Lymns.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that David's genuine, empathetic and professional manner made you feel at ease during the arrangements and that his guidance made this difficult time a little easier for you. Thank you also for taking the time to write this very kind review.

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?
