Mark Ridout looked after me and my family throughout the process of us losing our Nan, he made everything feel stress free and no problem which was exactly what we needed during this difficult time. He definitely goes the extra mile to support in any way possible and for that I am very grateful. Jemma Mason

    From start to finish I cannot fault AW Lymn. They were compassionate from the outset and nothing was ever to much trouble keeping me informed of progress every step of the way. Nobody likes to lose a loved one but AW Lymn help you with the process doing all of the heavy lifting. Thank you.

    The care and compassion shown to us and the care of our lovely Mum was second to none and we cannot thank Mark Ridout enough for the support he have to us at this sad time and only 13 months after losing our Dad. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

    A.W. Lymn, Carlton Team replied
    I was sorry to see you again a little more that a year later to arrange the funeral of Mrs Whitaker but am glad I was able to replicate many of the tailored elements so that her funeral matched Mr Whitaker’s before. I am grateful to you for taking the time to leave this kind review and if there is anything more we can do for you please do get in touch. Thank you, Mark.
  • 5 Janice & Dennis Tring 9th Jul 2021

    Our family have used Lymns many times over the years for the simple reason that they give the absolute best and professional service. Nothing is too much to ask of them and they do it all to perfection.  Could not have asked for a better ‘goodbye’ for my husband and their aftercare is excellent. Thank you, Lymns. You will remain our ‘family’ funeral directors into the future. 

    A.W. Lymn, Carlton Team replied
    It was a privilege to help you create such a fitting tribute to Dennis, including a final visit to the City Ground, and I am glad that you felt everything was perfect on the day. Thank you, Mark.

  • 5 Deb Hadley 18th Apr 2021

    In such a difficult and sad time Lymns in Carlton have been absolutely faultless in the service they have provided since my Step-dads passing. Mark Ridout in particular has been very supportive, professional and has a wonderfully caring nature. Lymns have been very understanding and helped ensure we were able to give my Step-dad the best send off. We'll be forever grateful.

    A.W. Lymn, Carlton Team replied
    I am glad that I was able to facilitate all your requests so that you could create a fitting celebration of Michael's life and I am grateful to you for taking the time to leave this public review. Thank you and do feel free to keep in touch if I can help you with anything further. Mark.
  • 5 Janet Cattermer 12th Apr 2021

    Everything was excellent, a thorough professional service from start to finish. All the staff are courteous and understanding at a time when you are going through such a bad time yourself. I would recommend A W Lymn to anyone, they will know their loved one be taken care of and given the consideration they deserve.

    A.W. Lymn, Carlton Team replied
    It was an honour to look after your family through this sad time and I am glad that I was able to thank you personally for this review when I delivered the extra order of service cards to you as well as doing so in this public manner. Thank you, Mark.
  • 5 Karina Watson 4th Apr 2021

    The funeral service provided was outstanding from Mark & Victoria, they gave compassion & support to the family throughout. This made a huge difference to us in a difficult time for which will be eternally grateful. This is the second occasion in a year we have used this service and it was comforting to have continuity and bespoke care. We also received feedback from friends attending how peaceful and calm the service was conducted. A huge thanks to the whole team who helped in any way to make this achievable.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are very sorry that it has been necessary for you to require our services twice over the past year but it is good to hear that having the continuity of Mark taking care of you on each occasion helped you to feel you were in safe hands throughout. Thanks also for the feedback from your friends regarding the calm and peaceful manner of the service.
  • 4 Ruth Millward-Hopkins 22nd Mar 2021

    The service provided by A W Lymn, Carlton was outstanding. Even though circumstances were made more difficult because of the pandemic, Mark and Mark were both caring, sensitive, supportive and professional throughout. We could not have wished for more. Many thanks

  • 5 Debbie Weightman 8th Mar 2021

    I was incredibly impressed by the balance of professionalism, respectfulness and kindness shown throughout my dealings with your company. This was from mum choosing her funeral plan in your Arnold branch to the staff at your Carlton branch who carried out her wishes. I want to mention the two 'Marks' in particular for their kindness and how they helped me get through the whole process. Thank you for being so sensitive and understanding at such a painful time. I would recommend your company to anyone in the future.

    A.W. Lymn, Carlton Team replied
    I am very pleased that Mark and I were able to make this difficult time a little easier for you and am glad that our sensitivity and understanding made such a difference. Thank you also for taking the time to post this public review and for your recommendation. Mark C.
  • 5 Neil Langley 22nd Feb 2021

    At such a difficult time after the passing of my Mother, especially in the present circumstance, both Mark Collishaw of Lymn at Carlton and the Celebrant Steve Eustace were outstanding in their support and reassurance. From the very first meeting until our Mum's Funeral 4 weeks later they were professional informative and always friendly and reassuring. Nothing was too much trouble and consequently the funeral could not have been any better, especially with the use of the web cast and the excellent Memory booklets. I feel Mum would have been proud of us all and pleased with what we achieved. Many many thanks to all Neil Langley (Son)

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Neil, thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review of Mark, Mark and Steve. I know the detail was very important to you, and although a small service in terms of attendees on the day, the ability to stream Mum's service far and wide should have helped others who were not physically present to feel a part of her service. Thank you for placing your confidence in us.
  • 5 Yuet-Mai Wan 15th Feb 2021

    Lymn came highly recommended to me and I am so glad that we chose them at such a difficult time.  I cannot express our gratitude for their  expertise, advice, guidance, tact and empathy.  They took away much of the stress of organising a funeral.  Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this very kind review. We are glad that we lived up to the recommendation you received and that Mark was able to incorporate all your requirements to create a fitting service.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?
