    Thank you for this lovely review. It was an honour to be asked to look after the arrangements for Mrs. Staton and to follow them through to the service. Orston has a great community spirit and this showed by how many people came to follow us from the house to church on the day, the little seed cards and service sheets were a real success and next year there will be some lovely displays of Pansy’s to remember Mrs. Staton. Dominic.

    The two most important men in my life have been respectfully and lovingly laid to rest with the warmth and caring of this most professional company of funeral directors x thank you for making the most difficult time so much easier x much gratitude to you all xxx

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was truly an honour to be personally asked to look after the funeral of one of your family once again. Seeing how many people came out to see us off on our last journey to the crematorium showed how well loved and respected Mr. Went was. Thank you, Dominic.
  • 5 Lynda Binney 30th Jan 2021

    I felt really looked after from start to finish. Nothing was too much for Dominic and I am sure he went over and beyond for me sometimes. I am so overwhelmed at how smoothly everything went including a live web cast, that Dominic suggested to me, of the funeral on the day which meant that those who could not be with us in person could still take part. The Covid19 precautions were there in full which was good but also not so good as all the arrangements had to be by telephone which is never easy. Dominic and the other staff were really thoughtful and talked me and my family through everything when it was needed. I cannot say enough about how great the whole experience at such a terrible time

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I’m glad we managed to find the right balance for Mr. Binney’s service incorporating the webcast and service sheets with the lovely pictures in. The flowers were a great choice and the colours really brightened up the chapel on a day that even the snow didn’t get in the way of a smooth running service. Thank you, Dominic.
  • 5 David Revill 27th Jan 2021

    Very pleased with your service. Excellent.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for these kind words. It was quite moving to see how many people lined the road to wave goodbye as we made our way from the house to the crematorium and listening to Rebecca’s service gave a real feel of the life of a wonderful lady. Dominic.
  • 5 Ralph Downing 26th Jan 2021

    A very empathetic and sympathetic service from first contact through to the funeral service itself. Nothing was too much trouble. I felt I was really listened to and everything was done to fulfil my requests and expectations. I beautiful poignant and respectful funeral service was delivered that did absolute justice to the life and work of my wife. Very pleased

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was a real privilege to be asked to look after Mrs. Downing and to work with you, Mr. Downing, in arranging the service. The personal touches like the slideshow throughout the service and the visual tribute worked perfectly and made the service very personal. Knowing how well loved she was locally and seeing how many people lined the street as we left the house was really moving. Thank you, Dominic.
  • 5 Michele Wall 24th Jan 2021

    As a family we would like to thank Lymns for their excellent service, especially in these difficult times. We felt very supported by their professional caring manner from beginning to end. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was lovely to see people paying their respects as we left the house on our way to Church and your choice of flowers was beautiful. Thank you, Dominic.
  • 5 Liz Toon 9th Jan 2021

    Dominic and the whole team couldn't have been more compassionate and professional at such a difficult time. Made us feel that nothing, was too much trouble.

  • 5 Michael Roberts 7th Jan 2021

    Very helpful. Considerate. Informative. Relieved me of a lot of stress. Professional approach in the best sense of the word. Overall superb management of a procedure that had to be carried out remotely as I lived over 150miles away. Well done!!

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Despite the restriction in place due to the pandemic I am glad that we were able to still meet most of the wishes Gladys has detailed in her plan. I also thought that the flowers selected and little service cards added a lovely personalised element to the service. Thank you, Dominic
  • 5 Ann Clayton 26th Dec 2020

    A very caring and helpful approach from the very beginning to the final moments of the funeral. Dominic was so pleasant to talk with and everything was put together in a very professional way. Ann.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Mrs Clayton, It was fascinating listening to you talk about your brother and I have already done as you suggested and looked up his books about old Nottingham. I thought that he service you created was lovely and the music choices very fitting. Thank you, Dominic.
  • 5 Allison Mulvany 23rd Dec 2020

    Dominic provided a professional service with compassion from the onset. He worked with other staff including Theresa Spencer, FD to make dads funeral go as well as it possible could in these pandemic times.  The family are very appreciate of all staff at Lymn’s including Jo at the central floristry department. The coffin spray was out of this world. Thank you Lymn’s.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am glad that despite the restrictions of the pandemic we were still able to add many personalised elements to Dad's funeral such as the autumn forest service sheets reflecting his love of nature along with the feathers included in the floral tribute. Thank you, Dominic.
  • 5 Anne Chambers 22nd Dec 2020

    Dominic was fantastic, he helped us through every step of the funeral process . He looked after all the arrangements and was very kind and supportive. The funeral was well organised and in these difficult times we were able to give Dad the send off he deserved . Thank you to all at Lymns Bingham .

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this review. It really was nice to see everyone out as we left the house and walked through Scarrington before making our way to the crematorium, and the family tribute film during the service was a very special moment that everyone commented on as we left the chapel. Dominic.
  • 5 Paul Sissons 20th Dec 2020

    Thank you for your attention to detail and the respectful way in which you dealt with myself and my family. Dominic coordinated the  whole programme efficiently and with absolute respect. Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words. It was lovely seeing all Mrs. Sisson’s neighbours outside to see her off on her final journey and the flowers and service sheets were nice and bright. Dominic.
  • 5 Amy Barnes 14th Dec 2020

    Excellent. Dominic was very professional throughout as well as helpful. He made the whole process easy and was always happy to answer any questions. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this review. Amy’s choice of coffin and the flowers were a perfect combination which looked great in the chapel and everyone I spoke to after the service joined me in commenting on the excellent music choices. Dominic.
  • 5 Barbara Ellmer 13th Dec 2020

    They made a hard time easier to have showing empathy at all times. Many thanks. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    The personalisation of the service by the provision of your own orders of service was lovely to see and it was fascinating to go through the pictures you provided for the visual tribute. Thank you, Dominic.
  • 5 Alison Hepworth 10th Nov 2020

    An excellent service from this company for a family funeral. Very professional, very caring and nothing was too much trouble even in these strange times. Special thanks to Dominic for his attention to detail and helpfulness. Would not hesitate to recommend them.

  • 5 Fiona Phelan 4th Nov 2020

    We cannot fault the service we received from A.W. Lymn Bingham when my mother passed away. From start to finish, all staff we met treated us with empathy and quiet professionalism. Nothing was too much trouble and this helped us cope at a very difficult time. Everything was done to make sure that everything we wanted for the funeral was made available. Our family's wishes were listened to with sympathy and acted upon with efficiency. Any queries we had were answered with clarity and we understood what was going to happen and when it was going to happen. We had confidence that the cortege and funeral service would be well organised which made it so much easier for us to be able to mourn my mother in the way we wanted to; we felt that she had been treated at all times with dignity and respect. We would like to say "Thank You" to everyone at A.W. Lymn, Bingham, for making things easier for us as a family in very difficult circumstances.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Fiona, it was my absolute pleasure to look after you and your family during this difficult time and I am really glad to read that the guidance and support I offered helped you to cope and to create a fitting tribute to your Mother. I am also glad that the information I provided beforehand meant that you understood exactly what would happen on the day itself so you were able to concentrate on the service rather than worry about other factors. Thank you very much or taking the time to leave this really kind review for me. Dominic.

    A. W. Lymn helped us arrange Sheila's funeral to ensure she got the send off she would have wanted. Dominic, Jane and Linsay were so helpful and caring at this difficult time. We can not thank them enough.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was an honour to take care of Sheila's funeral for you and it was amazing to see how many people lined the route from Garden Road through the market square and waited for us outside the plough to pay their respects as we passed. Thank you, Dominic.
