Excellent service.

Sarah McGinley 11th Aug 2021

A.W Lymn were excellent and really helped us cope with the funeral of mum. The timeline was short but Lymns managed to deliver a lovely service and burial. Colum O’ Shea was especially helpful in managing all our requests and was a massive support at a difficult time.

  • 5 Sally Myles 9th May 2021

    Lymns have been simply outstanding in the service they have offered us for the entire organization of my mothers funeral.  There has always been someone on the end of a phone at all times and their attention to detail has been incredible. In particular I would like to thank Colum O’Shea for all his help and advice and I could not have wished for a more dignified ending of my mother’s life. Thank you so much and I would whole heartedly recommend you to any future customer. Sally Myles

    A.W. Lymn, Ollerton Team replied

  • 5 Jane Baggaley-Agius 4th May 2021

    Collum was so sensitive and really helpful taking us through the processes at a time when we were so lost. There was no pressure despite our request for an 'as soon as possible' date for Mum's funeral. This request was met admirably. On the day, the funeral was conducted with the utmost professionalism. Annette conducted the service beautifully. She had listened and perfectly interpreted the feelings for our Mum. We felt thoroughly supported by all. Thank you.

    A.W. Lymn, Ollerton Team replied
    I am glad that we were able to get everything to come together so the the funeral could take place as quickly as possible for you and I am grateful to you for taking the time to leave this kind review. Thank you, Colum.

  • 5 Richard Williams 17th Feb 2021

    Every aspect of Colum's organisation of my father's funeral was spot on and everything went perfectly; his organisation was outstanding and he is a credit to a A W Lymn. Colum and his team were absolute professionals. They were efficient but sympathetic and between them ensured that nothing went wrong. Please pass on the grateful thanks of myself and my family to all, especially Colum, for what they did.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It is wonderful to read the kind words you have written about the professional and sympathetic service provided by the team at Ollerton and Colum in particular and we are glad that everything was perfect at the time of your father's funeral.
  • 5 Sef Raza 9th Feb 2021

    When a loved one dies and you need someone at your most darkest hour, there is no better funeral directors than A W Lynn New Ollerton. Colum O'Shea and his team, went above and beyond to ensure our every wish for the funeral and burial of our loved one, was followed.   Every I dotted and every T crossed.   They were totally amazing.   Love and respect given to the living and the deceased above and beyond anything you could dream of.   Highly recommended, not only as Funeral Directors, but for support, care and understanding beyond belief given.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am really glad that despite the fact we had to conduct this arrangement virtually you were so pleased with all that I did for you. I know that there were many specific personalisation elements and I am glad that everything came together perfectly for you on the day. Thank you, Colum.

    From start to finish throughout this sad time the staff at the Ollerton Branch and the Company as a whole have been understanding, sympathetic and professional. The proceedings on the day from the Clumber Court Care Home in Retford to The Crematorium at Babworth and throughout the service itself, were conducted in an excellent manner, Mum would have been impressed! Thank You.

  • 5 Tony & Carole O'Keeffe 31st May 2020

    They handled everything efficiently and without fuss. Even though we had to cope with the virus situation it was a smooth and comforting experience dealing with them. Arranging the funeral was dealt with by only two telephone calls which made it much less stressful than I expected, and if these matters can be called a good experience then this was it. Thank you Calum for your organization 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that ever with the restrictions in place due to coronavirus the arrangements were less stressful that you were expecting and the experience was as positive as it could be given the circumstances. Thank you.
  • 5 Susan Barrett 1st May 2020

    We were treated with sensitivity and time to make our own decisions. Nothing was a problem, excellent communication and professionally dealt with in these difficult times.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that you were treated with sensitivity and kept well informed throughout and Colum joins me in thanking you for taking the time to review his service.
