During this sad and stressful time, Lymn’s have been wonderful. With lock down and the current Corona *** situation, everything had to be done over the phone and at a distance. They were sympathetic, extremely helpful and made arranging everything as easy as possible. On the day, Nigel Lymn Rose was excellent. He accommodated Lily’s neighbours who couldn’t attend the funeral, allowing them to view the coffin from the side of the road. He was very helpful when we were at Bramcote crematorium easing us through the requirements and restrictions. We thank everyone involved for their kindness, compassion and assistance throughout the whole process.

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.
