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.

    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.

    Thank you for this lovely review. You did so well arranging and making sure everything was about him, from the music to even having all mourners wearing Christmas jumpers, which I thought was a wonderful idea as Duncan was always Santa. Everything you did for Duncan’s funeral service would of made him proud. Thank you, Kim.

    Stacey Bentley, Funeral Director for Lymn's Bulwell, is such a compassionate, caring, considerate, professional, and thorough person I have ever encountered. Stacey has helped me make my grieving process much easier. Stacey is my saviour. Stacey is an asset to the Lymn's family. I HIGHLY commend and recommend Lymn's. Thank you to ALL of your staff and an extra special thanks to Stacey for going above and beyond. Bless you. My Mum received the most outstanding care and presentation from when Lymn's received Mum to her final demise. A huge THANK YOU to the Pall Bearers who were very respectful and carried Mum beautifully. It really touched my heart. Thank you to the driver of the Hearse, and to everyone who helped prepare Mum. Because I am 5000 miles away, Stacey really was wonderful from beginning to end. Keeping me informed of every step. She really helped with my emotional state. A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone. Bless you all. xxx

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your wonderfully kind and detailed review, in particular the praise you have given to Stacey and the service she provided. We understand that your distance from us made things a little more difficult but are really pleased that Stacey was able to offer extra services to keep you fully informed and integrated in the proceedings. Stacey has also asked me to add how pleased she is with the kind comments you have made and with how satisfied you are with the service she provided. Thank you.

  • 3 Katie Norman 9th Dec 2016

    The price is very expensive so that has a lot to do with the review. Caroline was absolutely fantastic and did all she could to help us and talk to us she was absolutely fantastic. There was a couple of errors but they have sorted this quite fast and efficient

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for you very kind words about the way you were looked after fantastically by Caroline. We are however disappointed to see that there were a couple of errors with the funeral and although these were addressed straight away for you we are sorry that they ever arose. We also note your comment that your three star rating of our service was predominantly determined by the fact you found us to be expensive. We do not aim to be the cheapest, but we do aim to offer a service of the highest quality at a competitive price and so are disappointed that you did not feel that we achieved this. If you would like to discuss anything further please do not hesitiate to contact either the Bulwell office or myself. Thank you

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.
