    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Having known Alan for so many years I was saddened by his death but felt privileged to be involved on the day of his funeral. I thought that the show of friendship and support outside his hotel was very touching and it was so appropriate that the funeral cortege was led by the two “Mods on Scooters”. I am pleased that the service provided by our staff and in particular Deanna and Joyce proved helpful at this sad time. They join me in thanking you for this review, Nigel.

  • 4 Frank Bennett 4th Aug 2020

    I want to thank Laura and AW Lymn for the help and support they provided to the family at this difficult time. Laura was very helpful throughout all stages of the arrangements and she has to be commended for this. She answered any questions or concerns we had, which meant there was nothing for the family to worry about. On the day of the funeral everything we ask for we got, from the horse and carriage to the releasing of the doves. We were able to give mum the send off we could be proud of. Minor observation, there was no-one to support the playing of the music. We had to get one of the congregation to perform that activity. Just something to be aware of, nothing to detract from the overall quality of the service from Lymn. Once again wde all want to thank Laura in particular but AW Lymn for the service provided.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this detailed review of the service provided by Laura and her team at Aspley. We are pleased that Laura took such great care of you and the arrangements, keeping you well informed throughout and helping you decide on personalised elements such as the doves and horses. We are however sorry that it fell to you to handle the music and this is being investigated internally as this is certainly something that we could have taken care of for you. Thank you.

  • 5 Amanda Dixon 14th Mar 2020

    Laura at A.W. Lymn Aspley dealt with all the arrangements for my mothers funeral in a professional, yet personal and touching manner. Within the first meeting she covered everything in a way that was sympathetic and compassionate to our fresh grief. At a time where decision making can be very difficult for a bereaved family, she helped in making those decisions without any pressure at all.  We were given a folio at the meeting with all the relevant paperwork and clear explanations on what we needed to do, particularly with registering the death, and she highlighted clearly all the outstanding bits we needed to do i.e. flowers, choosing music, photos for the Order of Service. Laura kept in touch along the way and everything was just perfect on the day.   The cortege was outstanding, as were the funeral staff on the day of the funeral, very professional.  They directed us every step of the way and showed great compassion with my father having dementia and being very confused.  Everything was done very smoothly with no rush.   Thank you to all at Lymns, an outstanding service and would thoroughly recommend. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Hi Amanda, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a personal review. It was a honour to serve you and your family throughout such a difficult time. I am pleased I was able to make the process that little bit easier for you, and that Jonathan was there on the day of the funeral to support you all, in particular your father. Remember that I am always here if there is anything I can help you with in the weeks and months to come. Laura.

  • 5 Peter Bethell 20th Oct 2019

    My mother who lived in a nursing home in Nottingham passed away recently at 100years old  I am her only child and there are no close relatives in England I live in Washington State USA. This could have presented major problems with funeral arrangements. But not so !! Lymn’s  were outstanding in dealing with my mother’s funeral arrangements. From picking up my mother to arranging the funeral , providing flowers and a wonderful Vicar for the funeral service they were incredible. Great organization Very Compassionate Reduced stress on my end to a minimum Took care of all details. Lovely dignified service. Cannot speak too highly of Lymn’s and their staff. Dr Peter Bethell

    It was a privilege to care for you and your mother and I am glad that even with the distances involved we were able to create a fitting funeral for your Mother. Thank you for taking the time to write such positive comments. Richard.
