Absolutely fantastic service from Lynn's. From the start contacting you and arranging the funeral and discussing what we wanted at the service at the crematorium. The cars arrived on time and the gentleman driving the cars was very supportive and drove with care. The service at the crematorium went very smoothly with Malcolm and it was a lovely service what we had planned. Thank you so much for a fantastic service you provided. Love from the Dixon family x

    Nothing but the highest of praise.
    From the moment we first made contact with Sarah at the Ollerton branch, we knew that we had made the right decision. We wanted a simple but special funeral for dad and Sarah was always able to help make that happen. Colum also deserves a special mention for the way he put together and presented an exceptional eulogy. A first class friendly, family business.

    A.W. Lymn, Ollerton Team replied
    Dale, Thank you for the lovely comments. I am pleased the funeral service we arranged for Dad was everything you wanted, including the selection of the Civil Celebrant. If you do require anything else, please do not hesitate to contact me. Sarah.
