  • 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.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are sorry that you have required our services to arrange the funeral of your daughter, but we are glad that Deanna and Tony treated you with care and kindness throughout and helped to make this difficult time a little easier for you.
  • 5 David Knight 21st Jun 2020

    The staff at AW Lymm's performed amazingly in organising my Father's funeral and we were happy to leave everything in Kim's (Bulwell Office) capable hands - particularly as we are in Scotland and COVID restrictions prevented direct contact until the funeral itself. The funeral was necessarily an unusual event given the distancing regulations. The attending Lymm's personnel ensured that everyone complied to those regulations - but in a sympathetic and supportive manner. The selected celebrant was fantastic and the ability for non-attendees to participate via webcast was a tremendous boost.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind and detailed review. It is gratifying to know that even with all the covid restriction in place Kim performed amazingly well and that the webcast and celebrant recommended made the service inclusive for those unable to attend. Thank you.
  • 5 Lee Hudson 1st Jun 2020

    Under the circumstances we are all living in at the minute our brothers last journey was perfect... from start to finish communication was delivered and arrangements made... the Ariel aeroplane delivered a brilliant message in the sky  and the doves were beautiful we can not thank you enough the Hudson’s family x

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    To the Hudson’s, many thanks for your kind review. It is so difficult at present with some family and friends being unable to pay their respect at funeral services due to Covid 19. The Ariel message was just perfect for all to see in Nottingham and the sky was blue for Shaun. I wish you all the best and you know where I am if you ever want to talk. Thank you, Kim.
  • 5 Keith Dennis 1st Jun 2020

    I would just like to say thank you very much for Helens funeral and on your part I thought you did an excellent job. No one could have done it better. Thanks again. Keith 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Mr Dennis, I would like to thank you for your kind words and for putting your trust in me and letting me help you at this difficult time. Kim
  • 5 Karen and Brian Saunders 28th May 2020

    During this sad and stressful time, Lymn’s have been wonderful. With lock down and the current Corona virus 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.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Mr & Mrs Saunders, many thanks for your lovely review for myself, Nigel Lymn Rose and all staff who were involved with helping you make the arrangements for late Mrs Lily Nixon. I am glad that we were able to incorporate extra touches such as taking the funeral processions past neighbours who could not attend the service. I wish you and the family all the best for the future. Thank you, Kim.
  • 5 June Stewart 26th May 2020

    Thanks for the support from Kim and the Lymn's team for the sensitive and professional way in which they guided us through the funeral arrangements; and much appreciated they were able to arrange for both the same Vicar and Funeral Conductor as for my fathers funeral four years earlier.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
