Great service from  planning everything with Paige at bulwell branch to the funeral.

Julian McDonald 23rd Apr 2024

Arranging Funeral’s when emotions are running high must be a very difficult and stressful time but Lymns with their years of Experience, always  provide a 1st class service… Literally, perfect, time after time, I don’t know how Lymns manage to do it… Mark would be so thankful ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Daniel Mcphilbin 2nd Feb 2024

We were really impressed with the way lymns dealt with our mums funeral. They showed compassion through out all of the funeral. They were very good with the instructions they were giving in regards to carrying the coffin and with the burial. Thankyou for giving our mum an excellent send off.

    Paige and Philip provided excellent support to myself and my family when planning the funeral for my mother. All went ahead as planned and I felt that we received a high quality service at a time when we were struggling to come to terms with my mother’s death.

  • 5 Angela Brady 6th Nov 2023

    I could not fault them from beginning to end. Kirby explained everything really well, we knew exactly what was happening and what was going to happen.



    We sorted all the venue, church and other arrangements, advising her of them as they arose.
    I know we have been to other funerals run by Lymns so knew they are professional in their attitude and can be approached with any queries we may have. We could not have asked for a more efficient funeral. Thank you to all who were involved.

    A.W. Lymn, Bulwell Team replied
    Angie, it was a privilege to take care of you and your family, and it was lovely to work with Paige to support you in creating a wonderful service for Kevin.

    Thank you Kim, for your lovely feedback, I’m glad we were able to help during such a sensitive time. If there is anything else I can help you with you only have to ask. Paige.
  • 5 Bev Nield 3rd Oct 2023

    Thank you to all at AW Lymms, especially at the Bulwell Branch.   You were all amazing, particular thanks to Paige and Tony who made the whole experience positive and the day of the funeral very special.
    You enabled me to arrange the funeral exactly how I wanted it to be for dad.  Your experience meant you were able to suggest some things that were great and that I wouldn’t have thought of.
    It is also to important to say that you were all very kind, respectful and thoughtful at all times
    Thank you all

    I would like to say Thank you to Paige. She was so loving, kind, caring and professional within her role.

My family and I wish her all the best for the future.

We thank you for the other positive words, and hope that the two clients are understanding, both have received full refunds. Thank you again for your kind words.

  • 5 Dayle Maddock 2nd May 2023

    From first making contact with Lymns bulwell myself and my sister were reassured that our dad would be looked after 100 percent. We had a lovely man called Phillip who arranged our dad’s funeral with us and feel he went above and beyond to help make the whole process that little more bearable under the circumstances. Also Cheris for looking after us when we visited the chapel of rest (dad looked lovely) and Tony  for liasing with us throughout. Many thanks Dayle Maddock and Louise Thorne

    A.W. Lymn, Bulwell Team replied
    Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a privilege to help deliver a service fitting for Alan.
    Just hearing all the limericks he would quote, will always stay with me.
