  • 5 Derek Williams 30th Jul 2019

    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.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that Colum offered the correct balance of sensitivity and professionalism during this sad time and that you were kept well informed throughout. Thank you.

  • 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.

  • 5 Robert Finney 19th Feb 2019

     The service overall was very professional and caring. Colum O’Shea at Ollerton provided an excellent service and attention to detail was very good, assisting us every step of the way. The only thing that was a little disappointing was that we had included a pair of earrings to be with mum with her outfit. Unfortunately these were missed and were not with her when we came to see her. Colum however sorted the situation promptly and professionally explaining what had happened and assured us that they would be with mum the following morning.  The standard of service Lymns had provided was excellent and we thank you for making this difficult time an easier process. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this positive and detailed review of the service provided by Colum and his team. We are sorry to hear that Mum was not wearing her earrings when you came to see her but are glad that Colum dealt with this professionally and promptly for you and are pleased that everything else was done to a high standard. Thank you.
  • 5 Christine Gillon 29th Jan 2019

  • 5 Andrew Matthewman 27th Jan 2019

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. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

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.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

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.
