    At the most difficult of times Lymns were so very good. The staff were caring and friendly but very professional. They gave us time and were endlessly patient with us while we tried to arrange the funeral. They helped us through every aspect of the arrangements and made the funeral as easy as it could be on the day. Thank you Natalie and Donna especially. Mrs S Moore and family.

    Shelagh, it was lovely to meet you and your family, even though it was such a sad time, and to hear all your great memories of Richard. Thinking of you all. Natalie and Donna

    Donna was wonderful, Marion's Daughter Jenny is deaf without speech, Donna arranged for a signer to be there, the funeral and care before and after was super. My brother died in 2002, and A W Lynn did that for us, which was why we went back. Thank you . Lin Fox ( Marion's Sister in law)

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind review. Donna is glad that with the help of the Nottingham Deaf Society she was able to give Jenny the opportunity to follow the service properly and we both thank you for selecting to use our services again.
  • 5 Linda Morley 21st Jan 2018

    Natalie who works at your Beeston funeral parlour was very helpful, nothing was to much trouble. She treated my sister and I with compassion and understanding when arranging the funeral of our mum. We also thought Richard was very professional in making the day of the funeral run smoothly by talking us through the procedure. We were also very pleased with Chris Dakin the minister who conducted a beautiful service for mum.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Natalie, Richard and I are all grateful to you for taking the time to leave this positive review and for your kind words about the service they provided and the way they supported you during this difficult time. Thank you.
  • 3 Danielle Asano 11th Dec 2017

    The card on my flowers was lost and my flowers were unnamed at the crematorium...I’m still waiting for a call back as they are going to look for it (last Thursday). Was end disppointing end to what I felt was good service before then....

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    I am extremely sorry that you are still awaiting our return call, both Natalie and Richard have tried on numerous occasions and can only get your answerphone, on which we have left several messages. The whereabouts of your card is unknown, as it was definitely attached to the tribute at our office, but unfortunately once the flowers had been moved by the Crematorium it is very difficult to pinpoint where it became detached. I have spoken with our client Mr Spence to explain all of this. Thank you for your otherwise positive comment, Mr. Spence also described his experience as excellent. I am only sorry that Natalie has not been able to get back in touch with you.

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.
