Excellent and caring service at this bad time, first class organisation of the funeral itself which was very well conducted and enabled a good balance between Government Covid Lockdown requirements and our emotional needs. I have no hesitation in recommending AW Lymn's

    From our first call, our first visit to A.W Lymn we were treated with compassion for collecting mum to preparing and organising her funeral. Every thing was organised for us, we were kept up to date and the service was very professional. We would highly recommend to friends. Both David and Wendy helped us tremendously through this sad time.  Pauline & Ian Barr

  • 5 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.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind and detailed review. We are glad that Wendy was able to help your family through their grief by allowing them the opportunity to view their Dad when they were unable to visit him in hospital. Thank you.
  • 5 Ian Clegg 15th Sep 2020

    Wendy, David and the rest of the team managed to combine professionalism and detailed organisation with real compassion so Jo's family and friends had a completely stress free day and could focus on saying goodby to her. Everyone who attened and those who managed to watch online all said it was such a fitting tribute to a wonderful, loving and loved mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, wife and lover.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this wonderful review, particularly in regards to the compassion and support given to you by Wendy and David.

    Well what can I say A.W.Lymn were fantastic all the way through. Communication was excellent from Wendy and David and John on the day was so professional and kind. Janette the celebrant did an amazing job. We couldn't have asked for anything more. It was a beautiful service!!! Thank you so much for all your help and the extra added touch with the car. We can't thank you anymore for making our mums last day a perfect one x x

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.

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.

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.
