From my first phone call to the actual funeral, nothing was too much trouble, you made what was a difficult time easier for me by taking the weight off my shoulders and making sure my dad had the best funeral possible , I am eternally grateful for everything you did

    At what must have been a truly terrible time for you I am so glad that Mark and Mark were able to take some of the weight from your shoulders and guide you though all the decisions that needed making.

    We have used Lymn's Carlton for both my father and mother's funeral. They are the nicest people and have gone out of their way to provide us with the funeral we wanted. I would highly recommend them and we could not have wished for anything better.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Both Mark and Joyce remembered Reg fondly from the time of arranging your mother's funeral so it was with great sadness that they were called upon to arrange his funeral with you. They are however grateful to you for this lovely review and recommendation and are pleased that everything was once again as you had wanted it to be. Thank you.

  • 5 Amerit Williams 6th Sep 2020

    To all at Lymn’s Carlton, Thank you all so much for your obvious care and love for mum and us all at what was a very difficult and emotional time. Your compassion and empathy at all times was always evident. Nothing was ever too much for you to deal with even though we asked things of you at the last minute and needed issues dealing with in haste.  We were always made to feel like our mum was the only person in your care. She was treated with great dignity and respect.  Everyone’s manner was exceptional at all times. We really can’t thank you all enough. Special big thanks and hugs to Mark and Joyce.  Love from all of Maggie’s family. ❤️❤️

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this wonderful review, it really is greatly appreciated. We absolutely understand what an emotional time it is arranging a funeral and we are really glad that Mark's support, attention to detail and willingness to help, made this as straightforward as possible for you. Thank you from all the team at A W Lymn Carlton.

    We were so pleased we chose A.W. Lymn Carlton, they were professional, very kind and patient with us during this extremely sad time. They were helpful and were happy to go at the pace that suited us as a family and there was no pressure put on us regarding the funeral options available. This was the first time that I've had to arrange a funeral and  was so pleased to have A.W.Lymn Carlton to guide us through.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We understand that arranging a funeral for the first time can be a daunting experience and so we are gratified to hear that Mark made this process simpler for you, guiding you through all the necessary decisions at a pace which suited and without any pressure. Thank you.
  • 5 Jackie Hastings 2nd Jun 2020

    We cannot thank Mark Ridout, Nigel Lymn Rose, the staff at Gedling Crematorium and the Reverend Philip Thomas enough for the professional, caring and thoughtful way they guided us through the funeral process and supported us at such a sad and difficult time.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Mrs Hastings, thank you for your very kind review. It is so difficult with the restrictions during this pandemic to always provide families with the service they would want but with the reduced numbers that can attend it can be a warmer, more personal, ceremony and that is exactly the feeling that I experienced at Peter's funeral. I am pleased we could be of help. 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.
