Thalia Crossland 2nd Jul 2017

Donna at Lymns in Beeston, Nottingham was professional from the moment we met; everything was arranged, planned and delivered to perfection. There was obvious team effort and it felt like we were their main focus throughout the entire process. At a terrible time in our lives, we could not have wished for a better funeral. Thank you so much.

    Many thanks to Adrienne, Richard and the team at A.W. Lymn at Beeston, who helped me immensely during a difficult time. The service was well organized with great dignity and respect, which was appreciated by all present. The streaming webcast from Bramcote enabled many distant friends and family to participate also, adding much value.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that the team at Beeston were able to help you create a dignified and well organised service, and are glad that you were able to make use of the webcasting facility for the benefit of those who could not travel. Thank you
  • 5 Lynn Hazzledine 19th Jun 2017

    From the initial phone call Lymns were sensitive and professional.  Our meeting with Adrienne to arrange the funeral was comprehensive and reassuring; she carefully explained things and took full account of my wishes.  I felt fully supported and confident at all times and particularly on the day.  Richard was superb at the funeral, looking after us and guiding us throughout whilst at the same time being discreet.  I would not hesitate to recommend Lymns at Beeston to anyone who is unfortunate enough to be going through a similar experience.  Thank you so much Donna, Adrienne and Richard.  I will never forget it.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you very much for taking the time to leave this wonderful review. We are pleased that all the team at Beeston offed great support and guidance both while arranging the funeral and on the day itself and would thank you for your recommendation.

    Donna Conroy, who looked after the arrangements for us, was helpful, sympathetic and efficient. All the arrangements went very smoothly, all as planned. The funeral service was a fitting tribute to our mother. We felt securely supported in a situation which was for us inevitably unfamiliar and difficult.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 4 Debbie Godber 30th May 2017

    The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is because my Father's funeral was a pre paid plan which he and my mother arranged 10 years ago. In the plan they requested,and paid for, transport to the Crematorium in one car for six people. This was because they wanted us to all be together on the journey. Unfortunately we were sent two 4 seater cars not one of the six seater limousines paid for in the plan. I had specifically requested the 6 seater as I wanted my daughter & son in law with me, my husband and son so that we could support each other at such a difficult time. However we were told that the 6 seater limousines were only available at an extra cost! This was very disappointing- we all felt that they should've honoured what was arranged in the plan.  On the day everything went smoothly and apart from the car issue I have no complaints whatsoever. 

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Mrs Godber, Thank you for your kind and very balanced review. I am very sorry that the situation arose with regard to the six seater car. I apologise for this and accept full responsibility for the fact that my staff have misunderstood my instruction in regard to what to do in these situations. As you rightly say your father’s plan included a Rolls-Royce for six passengers. Unfortunately about a decade ago it became apparent that there would be no more Rolls-Royce six or seven passenger limousines produced and we as a firm had to decide in the long term whether our replacement policy would be to change the brand and to stick with six or seven passenger limousines such as Fords or Volvos, or whether we would maintain our tradition of Rolls-Royce vehicles in which case we would have to reduce to four seaters. We decided to do the latter and changed our pre-paid plans accordingly but for all those families that had an A W Lymn Plan and had been promised one six seater Rolls-Royce we provide a free upgrade to two four seater Rolls-Royces which is what happened in the case of your father’s funeral. My apologies are however due as whilst we still have some, albeit older, six passenger limousines you should have been afforded one of these if you had preferred it to the two newer vehicles. Clearly this will not always be the case but it should have happened on this occasion and It would appear that I had been remiss and not made this clear to the line managers of the staff members involved. I apologise unreservedly and confirm that this situation has been clarified with our staff to prevent this problem arising again. Thank you. Nigel Lymn Rose, CEO

    AW. Lymn provided an excellent service throughout. Thank you all The on line obituary is a good idea but we found it rather frustrating to use.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your high appraisal of the service provided by the team at Beeston. We are however sorry that you found the online obituary system frustrating. This is a relatively new system and we are working closely with the developers and so any feedback that you wish to provide about the issues you have experienced would be very welcome and would assist them with improving the system for others. Thank you.

  • 5 Andrew McFarlane 4th Mar 2017

    I dealt with Donna at the Beeston branch. She was professional and sensitive to my requirements and guided me through the necessary paperwork.  She put me in touch with a nonreligeous celebrant who conducted the service with dignity and respect.  On the day of my mother's funeral the hearse had a mechanical problem,  this can happen with classic vehicles. Donna was (at my request) in charge and swiftly informed us of the delay.  I was contacted by Mr Lymn, the proprietor and he apologised for doing so by email due to my living some distance away.  He waived the cost of the floral tribute, which I felt was a generous gesture.  Lymn's is a highly respected Nottingham firm and they upheld the highest standards of professional conduct. 

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Mr McFarlane. Thank you for your very kind comments about the support that Donna and her team representing our family company in Beeston provided to you and your family in arranging and conducting your Mother’s funeral. I would also personally record my thanks for your kind understanding following the delay caused by the unforeseen mechanical problem with our 1960’s classic Rolls-Royce hearse. It really was much appreciated. Thank you.
