Terry Redgate 25th Mar 2024

We have alway used AW Lymn's for our family funerals and continue to receive the same service which is outstanding over 50 years, thank you for this wonderful service, yet again!

Stephen Daniels 24th Mar 2024

A W Lymn at Clifton were marvellous in their support and organisation of my Father's recent funeral arrangements and they made the whole process from initial enquiry to finally collecting his ashes a comforting and stress-free experience. Jane, in the Clifton branch, and Jackie, who led the funeral cortege, were genuinely lovely and caring; it was a pleasure to know that, under their guidance and organisation, everything would go seamlessly and it certainly did. During a clearly distressing time for any family they are wonderfully supportive and provided an outstanding service. I can recommend A W Lymn in the strongest possible terms. One always hopes one doesn't need a service like theirs but, when you do, they are a superb company to help you make the necessary arrangements. I cannot thank them highly enough and I can honestly recommend them as an excellent firm, well deserving of their 5-start rating. Many thanks to all concerned at A W Lymn.

Julie Morley 5th Feb 2024

From start to finish the service provided by Lymn's was outstanding. I would like to praise Jane at the Clifton office for her empathy, support and professionalism in helping the family through this difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble and all the family felt at ease to deal with arrangements.  On the day of the funeral Jane and the drivers all showed respect and reverence to the occasion but also kindness, humour and empathy supporting the family in a way that was fitting to the circumstances of the deceased. An outstanding service, thank you.

    After talking about Peter’s life with you I knew that Richard Marshall would be just the right person to take the service, and Jackie Lymn Rose the perfect conductor on the day, having know Peter from his flying days.
    I am so happy that everything went according to plan and the service was a fitting tribute to such an amazing man. Thank you, Jane.

    We were very grateful for the professional, but sensitive manner in which the funeral was conducted. Everything seemed to go very smoothly and we have been very impressed with the whole process. We are very glad that both Mum and Dad chose the Lymns company to handle their funeral plan and it has been a pleasure to deal with you all (particularly Jane and Gary) from start to finish. Thank you.

  • 5 Melanie Johnson 29th Sep 2023

    From the first telephone call to collecting my mums ashes Jane could not have been more caring. At a very difficult time staff from Lymns at Clifton could not have done a better job. I would highly recommend them

  • 5 Racheal Slater 13th Aug 2023

    A W Lymn helped to sort out my mum's funeral 6 months prior as well and I can honestly say that they always give a personal touch to everything and make sure that you are cared for and as much of your wishes are carried out. Unfortunately we couldn't arrange the 6 virgins to carry my dad into the crematorium like he wanted but he would have been very proud of the way we said our goodbyes. I can't thank Joanne and Jane enough for everything they did for both my mum and dad in such a short period of time between their departures.
    Thank you for everything.
    Racheal

    A.W. Lymn, Clifton Team replied
    I was so sorry to hear of your loss on this occasion, losing one parent is bad enough but to loose both parents in such a small time is devastating. I was so blessed to be able to help at such a sad time. My heart goes out to you all. Take care, Jane
  • 5 Karina Matto 28th Jul 2023

    Joanna was helpful, compassionate and professional throughout making the funeral arrangements can’t thank her enough and Jackie the same on the day

    Jackie Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Karina, I was honoured to be present on the day of Leona's funeral service. Your meticulous planning came to fruition perfectly. The large attendance and lovely tributes at the service was testament to the popularity of your best friend. You did her proud.

  • 5 Kim Vittles 24th Jul 2023

    I cannot thank Joanna and Richard at Lymns Clifton Nottingham enough for the support and service they delivered to give our mum an excellent, perfect send off. ❤️
    This was a very difficult time for us and sadly a whole new experience for the family yet they guided us through it with ease and plenty of patience 🙏
    Nothing was too much for them to do or sort out and kept an open line of communication throughout.
    They did our mum/grandma/sister/friend proud and I will be telling everyone who listens this too.
    Keep doing what you are doing because you are a strength of support and comfort in a yet sad and distressing time of a family who has just lost a loved one.
    Thank you again from all the Vittles family and friends.

    A.W. Lymn, Clifton Team replied
    Kim, I'm very grateful to you for taking the time to respond so positively. I'm also pleased that you felt you, your mum and all the family had been so well cared for by all of us at Lymns. It was a privilege to look after you all at such a sad and difficult time. Richard.
  • 5 Eleanor Irvine 4th Jul 2023

    Lymns looked after us perfectly both before, during and after the funeral. They really made a difference to what was a very sad and stressful time for me and made me feel really cared for and supported. I would highly recommend them.

    A.W. Lymn, Clifton Team replied
    Thank you very much for your five-star review and kind words. I was happy to help you with the arrangements for Andrea and the service was a lovely occasion. Joanna
  • 5 Sandra Corner 16th Jun 2023

    Couldn't have gone anywhere better. They made my mum look beautiful every single day we went to see you. They really looked after her. I looked after the family. Couldn't have got a better funeral company than limbs wouldn't go anywhere else

    A.W. Lymn, Clifton Team replied
    Thank you for your kind review, Sandra. What a send-off your mum had! She was so obviously loved and respected by so many and I was honoured to be able to help you and share such an important day with you. Joanna
  • 5 Brian Morley 13th Jun 2023

    I cannot find fault with the services supplied by Lymn,s Good advice was always to hand. I am sorry to say that there were some problems but this was the result of a disruptive family member. The matter was smoothly dealt with . Thank you very much Joanna. I would not hesitate to recommend Lymn's services.

    A.W. Lymn, Clifton Team replied
    It was a pleasure to support you through a particularly difficult time and no matter what else was happening, June had a lovely funeral service, befitting of her. Joanna
  • 4 Christine Horton 11th Jun 2023

    Whilst l was really pleased with the funeral itself l was unhappy with the invoice. It had increased by £450 with no explanation. I had to ring and find out why . A mistake had been made and I was expected to accept it . I call that poor customer service.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Unfortunately the Directors were unaware of the administrative error at Clifton, and we thank you for raising it with us. We trust that Joanna's apology, and refund of the £450 which was due to her mis-quoting one of our fees on the estimate has settled the matter for you. Thank you for your kind review of the funeral itself.
  • 5 STEPHEN LAMB 10th Jun 2023

    We were welcomed by Joanna who made the process for choosing the funeral that was relative to our mother, Joanna was vey thoughtful and helpful, there was nothing that we had to deal with.
    We couldn’t have asked for any more. We would highly recommend letting her and the rest of the team to anyone.
    Thank you again .

    A.W. Lymn, Clifton Team replied
    It was an absolute pleasure to assist you with everything for your mum’s funeral service and it was lovely to meet you all, albeit in difficult circumstances. Thank you, Joanna.
  • 5 Christine Henson 5th Jun 2023

    Dealt with everything efficiently and courteously.

  • 5 Susan Hemmings 13th May 2023

    My heart was in my mouth when I saw Joanna walking in front of the car very moving and the rest of journey to Wilford hill would like to thank everyone who was involved

    A.W. Lymn, Clifton Team replied
    Thank you for your kind words Susan. It was an honour to page your mum on her last journey and I am so glad that everything went well. Joanna

    Exceeded all expectations from beginning to end - My Mam would have been absolutely delighted to have seen her go in such style.
    Lymn’s staff at Varney Rd Clifton were amazing, everything was spot on without a hitch.
    Thank you for providing a stress free time of arranging Mam’s funeral… Joanna and team… you’re simply the best! X

    A.W. Lymn, Clifton Team replied
    Everything was wonderful for your mum and the horses, with their emerald green plumes and drapes, along with the release of the two doves made the day incredibly special and just what your mum deserved.
    It really was a pleasure to work with you to make the day such a celebration. Joanna
  • 5 Rachel Denson 27th Mar 2023

    We would recommend A W Lymn Funeral Directors as a highly efficient firm who care about every detail of the funeral. They made suggestions which were things that we hadn't thought about and if you could ever say that a funeral was a lovely event, the funeral for our daughter was certainly it. Joanna, who made the arrangements for us, was extremely attentive and we couldn't have asked for anything better to say goodbye to our beloved daughter. Thank you.

    A.W. Lymn, Clifton Team replied
    Rachel, thank you so much for your kind words; they really do mean so much. I was honoured to be with you step by step to ensure we gave Ashleigh everything she deserved. Everything went so well and even the sun was shining! It was a beautiful service – a real celebration of Ashleigh’s life – with tears but also with lots of smiles and laughs, just as it should have been. Take care of each other, Joanna
