Mark Ridouk was very kind, gentle, efficient, helpful, and compassionate. He helped to lift me and guide me a very painful time in my life and explained things all the way through the proceedings and was always there if I needed help. I can not thank him enough. Janice's Husband. Dave.

  • 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.

  • 5 Dawn Lawrence 7th Apr 2020

    Lymns were excellent. At a time when our family were grieving and finding things hard they were there for us and supported us. To add to the stress we were all on lock down because of Covid 19, Lymns coped with daily changes to guidance and kept us informed. They were professional but also sensative and appreciative to our needs. My Dad had the send off he wanted, driving past his flat for the last time with dignity and respect. We can't thank Lymns enough.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are really glad that even with all the ever changing guidance the team at Carlton were able to help you give your Dad the send off he wanted and include special elements such as driving past his flat for one last time. 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.

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.
