Lovely people   They did my dad proud   Cannot fault anything 

Dawn Weiss 31st May 2020

EXCELLENT SERVICE. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND.

Tony & Carole O'Keeffe 31st May 2020

They handled everything efficiently and without fuss. Even though we had to cope with the *** 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

    The complete "package" from start to finish was conducted in a very professional manner but at the same time sensitivity came across at the correct level. All aspects of the processing of paper work and other matters were dealt with very efficiently. Communications were maintained throughout and actions required to be taken were completed with minimal disruption. Extremely satisfied and would recommend to others.

  • 5 Margaret Wright 23rd Jul 2019

    At this very sad and stressful time  l could not have asked for a more perfect guide  through this journey.  From start to finish Colum was friendly and helpful  accomodating all of our ideas fully. He also introduced us to Janeen  who we feel made our service  so unique and special for us all  and high-lighted what a very special and SO LOVED man Bill was  He was enclosed within his family,which would be his ideal place  So the whole professional experience with the beautiful cars etc  made the day one we will remember sadly  but at the same time giving the beautiful show of respect he so rightly deserved. So thankyou Lymns and the Celebrant  Janeen, who became like part of our family  for getting us through this very sad day !!

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind and detailed review of the service given by both Colum and Janeen. We are pleased that they were able to help you create a day that was sad but beautifully fitting and i have asked Colum to send your kind words to Janeen as well so she is able to see what you have written. Thank you.
