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.

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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 5 Susan Bamford 18th Dec 2020

    Lymn Carlton gave a very professional service throughout the process. Nothing was too much trouble. Although we were under covid restrictions, the funeral service still felt very special, thanks to the attention to detail and the kindness and consideration of the staff. The order of service was beautiful, and provides a special memento. Lymn also arranged a webcast, which was fantastic for the many family members who were unable to travel to the service, and this was really appreciated.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am sorry that the covid regulations meant that we were unable to meet face to face to make the arrangements but am glad that you wee still happy with all the I did for you and also that the webcast made such a difference for the family and friends who were unable to attend. Thank you, Mark.
