We were very impressed by their compassion and professionalism. The attention to detail made the day of the funeral so much easier. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Carolyn Bell 21st Mar 2020

We received the best possible service.  Everyone was always so kind and helpful and all the arrangements both before and at the  funeral service went without a hitch.   Lymn's are a thoroughly professional company with a lovely human touch - just what's wanted at such times.  We couldn't speak highly enough of their wonderful staff. 

Andrew Fawcett 20th Mar 2020

Very professional service, understanding and supporting staff members during this difficult time in people’s lives. I would like to say special thanks to Diane in Carlton office, Nottingham

  • 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.

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.
