Caroline Smith 6th May 2024

Thank you to Wendy and Becky for the time that was spent with us in organising our much loved mums funeral. Andy was brilliant on the day, not rushing any us . The driver of the 100 year old Rolls Royce was lovely. Everything and everyone was turned out immaculately. The bearers were very respectful. The day  couldn’t have gone any better and our mum would have been proud of the whole occasion. We miss our mum so much and Lymn’s were every bit respectful the whole of the time. 

Virginia Klein 6th May 2024

A.W. Lymn were always sensitive, patient, respectful and empathetic whilst also thoroughly efficient, knowledgeable, conscientious, flexible and professional. All instructions were carried out carefully and calmly. A very reassuring and personal service.

  • 5 Laura Allcock 26th Sep 2023

    From start to finish Becky excelled herself . We used the office at Rainworth , despite living in Pleasley ,  because of Becky and will continue to do so . Her patience and dedication to us meant the world at such a distressing time . 
    The bearers on the day of the funeral were really attentive too and nothing was too much trouble . 
    I would highly recommend this funeral director and all their services in the future . 

    Thankyou Laura Allcock 

    A.W. Lymn, Rainworth Team replied
    Thank you Laura for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review. We’re so sorry that you needed our services again so soon after losing your dear Mum. John was clearly a much-loved man and we’re so pleased that the funeral service was everything you had hoped for. The custom coffin was such a fitting tribute to John’s love of cricket and music. We hope he’s found someone who’ll buy the next round for him! Thanks again, Becky and Andy.

  • 5 George Clark 21st Aug 2023

    A.W Lymn Rainworth, provided the services for the funeral of my late Wife Patricia.

    We chose them because they were the closest Funeral Directors to where we lived, we didn't know when we did, what a marvelous choice we had made.

    Becky and all the staff at A.W.Lymn could not have been more helpful compassionate and respectful and they made a traumatic time in our families lives as easy for us as it could be.

    I hope we do not have cause to use their services any time soon in the future, but when the time comes they will be our first choice. Thank you

    A.W. Lymn, Rainworth Team replied
    Thank you George for taking the time to leave such a positive review. We’re so pleased to hear that we were able to make this sad time a little easier for you and your family.

Thanks again, Becky & Jonathan.
