From the collection of the body from the house, through to transporting the family to the reception, the care and consideration we received from Lymns was excellent. Every aspect of the funeral was explained to us and all communication was conducted in a friendly and respectful way. Many thanks to the whole team.

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

  • 5 Rachel Warren 20th Jan 2019

    Laura Fletcher is an absolute credit to your company. From start to finish she made this unpleasant task, bearable to complete. Her professional and caring manner was a true support for our family. All requests were met with compassion and at times shared laughter. The floral tribute and Order of Service were fantastic !!! Steve Wakeling who led the Service, delivered the words expressed by the family in a professional and friendly manner. Many members of our family and friends actually commented "Dad would have been proud and it was, in fact, a lovely day" THANK YOU TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE LYMNS TEAM.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am touched that you have taken the time to write such a lovely review. I am so pleased you liked the bespoke floral design and the orders of service, the fish really did look amazing! You are a truly lovely family and I am honoured to have served you throughout such a difficult time. Thank you, Laura.

  • 5 kuldeep verma 4th Oct 2018

    We lost our mother and needed a supportive and knowldegable funeral director to assist us. From the start we were dealt with like individuals and given excellent advice on the first meeting. There was not pressure to sign or do anything we didn't want. The planning was made easier with the systematic approach and also checking what the wishes of the family were to be. Laura at the Aspley Branch was excellent and catered to our Indian culture. Laura was flexible and patient,thank you Laura. On the day the cars arrived and were a fitting tribute to my mum. Nigel the boss was master of ceremony and he had a knowledge, understanding and deep respect of indian traditions. He gently and efficiently manoeuvred us into the cars always suggesting options and more importantly gave us time to do what we needed to do. Never rushed and always empathetic and caring. Thank you Nigel.  Overall Lymns has been an excellent firm to say goodbye to a loved one. They really cared about mum and the living relatives.  God Bless and thank you from the Verma and Harish family  

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind comments, particularly in regard to the support and cultural awareness provided by Laura. I am sorry that it was such a difficult day for Dad and I am only pleased that having plenty of time helped ease the burden. Thank you.
