First class service throughout the whole process David and Wendy helped put it all together especially as we didn’t live in the area and COVID restrictions. Highly recommend this firm as mum was treated with dignity and respect.  Thankyou from all the family.

angela burditt 22nd Sep 2020

Wendy was very helpful when she visited me at home to arrange my husband's funeral. She was kind and reassuring to us all at a terrible time. She arranged a viewing for the members of the family who weren't able to see their dad in hospital when he passed which was very important to them and to me. The funeral was just a I wished it to be. David showed us careful compassion during the journeys and the ceremony and Michael Elliott, the Celebrant chosen for us, was really very kind and spoke of all the things I couldnt say on that sad day. A real comfort. Also the family flowers, arranged by Lymns, were lovely.

    We dealt with the branch at Rainworth, Nottinghamshire and Wendy who was dealing with us was very compassionate and very professional. The funeral on the day went very smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. Jonathan who was leading the funeral went out of the way to go to some woods where my Husband and myself went to everyday to walk our dog.

  • 5 Margaret Gretton 25th May 2019

    From the first visit to Wendy to make arrangements everybody was so kind and considerate - I know it's their job - but they all went above and beyond. When I called in to hand in more donations I was handed a Memory Box which I and my family thought was a lovely gesture, which I shall keep and treasure. Thanking everyone concerned you made a sad day a little easier to handle

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words. We are pleased that Wendy and her team looked after you and your grand-daughter so well during the arrangements and are glad that you like the memory box.

    Both David and Wendy are amazing. After two bereavements within a month, they helped, supported and guided the family through the process. They were thoughtful and kind and I will be forever in their debt. They helped create a day that we will remember. Would highly recommend to all and I am sure our paths will cross again.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am very sorry to read that you have experienced two bereavements in your family within such a short space of time but am glad that Wendy and David have provided such amazing support to your and your family throughout.

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.
