    Compassionate and professional throughout, Tina inparticular, nothing was too much to ask she is a lovely warm and welcoming lady, I doubt my nanas day would have been as beautiful as it was or ran as smoothly as it did without her and the lymns team. Everything was explained, every little detail was covered, and I without a doubt will be happy to recommend lymns for anyone experiencing these hard times, they made it that little bit easier. We honestly will never be able to thank them enough.

  • 5 Angela Barlow 6th Oct 2018

    We were and still are devastated at the loss of our fabulous mother. We contacted Lymns bulwell branch and arrange the funeral with help from Kim Nichols. She was absolutely brilliant. So professional, helpful and extremely sympathetic always, whether face to face or on the telephone. On the day of the funeral, the whole day was dealt with in a professional and extremely courteous manner throughout. I would recommend this company to anyone who would be unfortunate to require their service. Angela Barlow

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Mrs Barlow, many thanks for your kind words and review. It was an honour to have helped you and your family at this difficult time and seeing just how fun and amazing your Mum Jean was in stories and in her photos. Thank you, Kim.

  • 4 Lisa Horton 22nd Apr 2018

    Excellent service, only negative i can find is the choice of Vicar for the service who did not really prepare in advance and made it feel like he was reading off a piece of paper.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this positive review, we are pleased that Kim and Nigel offered excellent service both beforehand and on the day itself. We are however sorry that you were disappointed with the Vicar that we suggested. He is a local Church of England Minister who leads many services for our family company and we can only apologise that on this occasion you felt that he was not properly prepared. If you would like to discuss this further with us please do not hesitate to contact either Kim directly or Matthew or Nigel at head office. Thank you.
