From start to finish the personal server we received from A.W. Lymn could not have been better. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were friendly and professional throughout. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Paula Calladine 16th Oct 2019

Very thoughtful, caring service received from all the staff at the Carlton branch from first contact. Nothing has been too much trouble to any requests and the funeral despite appalling weather was executed with such dignity and respect. Thank you you are the best.

  • 5 Miss Linden Burdus 13th Sep 2019

    Outstanding professional caring support from all staff ,especially Mark Ridout. They ensure that everything is undertaken perfectly and assist in every way possible . Having had to organise two funerals in five months I would have struggled without their expertise and cannot thank them enough for their attention to detail and genuine care.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are sorry that it has been necessary for you to require our services twice in such a short space of time but we are glad that on each occasion Mark has ensured that all your requests have been met and he has treated you with care and understanding. Thank you.
  • 5 Andrew Cammiss 12th Aug 2019

    A fantastic and professional service for our family through this very difficult time. Excellent communication throughout the period making the whole process a lot easier. We have had so many nice comments on the service that would have made my Dad proud. Thank you for everything.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words. We are glad that Sarah's excellent communication and professionalism made the process easier for you and are pleased that you were able to personalise the service by incorporating some of Dad's own music.
  • 5 Paula Goode 27th Jul 2019

    The service provided was excellent from start to finish. Because of the various difficulties involved in the circumstances following Alan's death, it could not have been easy to make all the necessary arrangements. In the end, it all worked out well and the funeral went off as well as anyone could have expected and hoped for. Mark was his usual competent self, making everyone feel at ease during the making of the arrangements and on the day itself. This review is being written by Alan's brother John, as it was my e mail address that was used for the sake of convenience. I am sure that Paula, Alan's daughter, would endorse what I have said and I have forwarded your e mail to her so that you may get a response from her as well. Many thanks for everything. John A Goode.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you John for your lovely comments. We have had a super working relationship over the seventeen years that I have been in Nottingham and I always feel that such a time must be doubly difficult for you as a clergyman and also as a family member. I felt it a very touching moment in the service when you gave the reading and, as always when I meet the same family for another funeral, how emotional it can be but also how much of a privilege it is to be of service. Mark.
  • 5 Roy Pearson 24th Jul 2019

    Excellent in every respect. Compassionate, understanding and willing to meet every need of the family. Highly professional with exceptional attention to detail. A personal relationship quickly established to gently guide during a time of great sadness.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words about the compassionate and understanding service provided by the team at Carlton and Mark in particular. We are glad that he was able to support and guide your during this sad time and that all your needs were met.
  • 5 Julia Davies 15th Jul 2019

  • 5 Dennis Bambury 27th Jun 2019

    From start to finish the whole process was made as easy as possible for those arranging the funeral. We were visited at home to ascertain our requirements for the funeral and every option was explained clearly and our wishes noted. On the day everything went smoothly , without any hitches and the mourners cared for in a friendly and dignified manner. I can not speak highly enough of the service provided. Dennis A Bambury

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Russell has asked me to pass on his personal thanks for this lovely review. He is glad that you felt he took great care of you throughout the arrangement process, explaining all the options to you and noting all your requirements accurately. He is also pleased that you found his friendly and dignified manner reassuring on the day itself. Thank you.
  • 5 Mr Richard Hallam 8th Jun 2019

    Joyce at A. W.Lymn in Carlton was excellent, she organised everything so well and quickly and with warmth that helped me. I could not have wished for any better help and service. On the day of the funeral the lady and gentlemen that came were so helpful , especially Russell. They could not have done more to ensure everything proceeded smoothly and with a sympathetic touch for everyone present. Thank you Lymn Funeral service .

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Joyce tells me that there was some urgency to get the funeral booked within a few days of you meeting with her due to upcoming commitments and so we are glad that she was able to arrange this for you. She joins me in thanking you for your kind words about her and the rest of the team.

    Thank you to A.W.Lymn at Carlton for providing such a high level of service at such a sad time. Lesley was so kind and helpful in accommodating all of my wishes with my husbands funeral.

    Mark at Lymn,s, Carlton, could not have been more helpful. He made every effort to make, what could have been a painful day, as pain free as possible. Lymn's were extremely sensitive to my every need and hugely supportive on the day.

    It was a great privilege to be of help to your family, who were devastated by this tragic event, but we immediately discovered much in common which cemented our relationship and over the weeks that followed with various meetings we created a fitting tribute for Sarah‎ with a positive and uplifting Service under the sensitive care of Paul Wells. Thank you for taking the time to leave this wonderful review for me and my team. Mark.
