  • 5 Rose-Marie Esty 20th Apr 2021

    Everything went very well as planned. Just one small disappointment, the entry song wasn't played. It was indeed an A* service. Thank you for all that you did to bring together a beautiful send off for our beloved brother/son. It was an emotional time for the family and you've made it possible to give him a send off he would have loved. A massive thank you on behalf of our family to A.W Lymn Bulwell.

    A.W. Lymn, Bulwell Team replied
    We really do appreciate you taking the time to leave this lovely review and we are glad that we were able to assist you in creating a send off that Donovan would have loved. We are sorry that the power failure at the Crematorium meant that one piece of music was not played as you wished but we thank you for your kind acknowledgement that this was outside of our control and that we provided an A* service. Thank you and take care. Paul and the team at Bulwell.

  • 5 sally Nallamilli 29th Mar 2021

    The arrangements for my brother were overseen by Kim, she was extremely helpful and understanding in what was the worst time of my life! She listened and walked me through all the necessary details. She called and emailed regularly to tell me about each stage at it was completed. She was very understanding and sympathetic, totally committed to making sure that this final event for my brother was perfect. Everyone who was involved at Lymns or had a part in the service also made everything run smoothly and they looked after everyone who attended but especially me in making sure I was okay at this most sad time. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who looked after Tony, driving him, carrying him and making his final hours with us special goodbye. Sally. (sister)

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We really are grateful to you for taking the time to leave such a kind and heartfelt review of the service provided by Kim and Tony. It is good to know that Kim's sympathy, understanding and commitment ensured that your brother's funeral was perfect, and that Tony and his team made your final few hours with him special. Thank you.

    The service we received was excellent. Matthew treated us all and especially my Mum with real care and compassion. The driver was friendly in a subtle way and helped us to get through a difficult day. Kim was excellent at sorting out our preferences and very compassionate when we visited Dad in the Chapel of Rest Overall an excellent service  from start to finish. I would certainly recommend Lymns as an outstanding Funeral Director.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for the warm, kind and considered words about Kim and all of the team. It was an honour to look after a man who had done so much in his 101 years, and the love shown to him by his family and carers was clear to all. 'King Arthur'.

  • 5 Tina Pottrell 31st Jan 2021

    Kim at Lymn’s could not have made the sad experience of arranging Mum’s funeral any easier.  She walked me through every step, with kindness and patience. Lymn’s offer as much or as little as you want, with no pressure and that’s important at such a sad time. Thank you Kim. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Tina, many thanks for your kind words and review. Thank you for letting me help you at this difficult time and it was nice to see you in person when signing the forms and visiting your Mum in the Chapel of Rest. I wish you all the best for the future and keep safe. Kim.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Mr Millington, it was an honour to have helped you and your family at this difficult time. It was wonderful hearing all the stories of Brenda and her history, she was a ray of sunshine. Also I will always remember her photo with the crown made out from laundry pegs, brilliant. Kim.
  • 5 Katie Viccars 18th Jan 2021

  • 5 Susan Elaine Smith 9th Jan 2021

    The service we received from W A Lymn couldn’t have been better so professional and caring from the first conversation . Kim had time to spend talking and explaining everything at our pace not rushing us at all. Such care was taken with Dad he looked at such peace when we went to visit him. Nothing was to much trouble for them and it made such a difficult time seem a bit easier to cope with 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words in particular regarding Kim's care and your visit with Dad in our chapel. We are glad that we were able to make this difficult time a little easier for you to cope with.

  • 5 Dawn Britt 28th Sep 2020

    This is the first funeral we’ve had to plan and A.W.Lymn Bulwell made us feel so comfortable and any questions we had or requests for the day were answered and done with no hesitation. We were made to feel welcome and never felt like we were left to fend for ourselves, we always felt like nothing was too big or too small and we were given enough time to ourselves when we needed. I cannot thank them enough for a lovely treatment in a sad time. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Dawn, many thanks for your kind review, I am glad that I made you feel comfortable and able to ask any questions, no matter how trivial you thought they might be. I wish you and your family all the best for the future. Thank you, Kim.
