  • 5 Linda Eames 31st May 2020

    Caring and Professional  as always, but during these strange times with coronavirus & the lockdown - they all went that extra mile - even if it was spending time to chat to me on the telephone as I felt very isolated  especially from my family ,  it helped make  this traumatic time easier to cope with. A Very Special Thank You To You All

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    During these difficult times, we all feel for families that are caught up in this situation and know how challenging it is when families are apart and cannot give their loved one the service you had wished for them. I am pleased that we were able to ease that a little for you and you found us to be caring and professional. Thank you, Joanna.

  • 3 Antony Morrison 23rd May 2020

    The staff at the place were professional, they were understanding and helpful. However the companies charging for viewing the body in the chapel of rest I don't agree with, wanting £200 just to say goodbye which I know alot of other companies don't charge for. Also was upsetting for my grandmother's sister coming out of the service to see her flowers she had brought were missing and still at branch, good job she came or we would of been no wiser of missing flowers, staff soon rectified it but it shouldn't of happened.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your feedback, as discussed previously we do itemise all our charges meaning that families only pay for the part of our service which they utilise. I am however extremely sorry about the flowers, the florist delivered them and left them at our premises, but with the flowers that were for another funeral. Once we realised this we delivered them for you, I am however sorry that this meant they were late arriving with you at the Cemetery. If you would like to discuss either matter further please feel free to contact me via matthew@lymn.co.uk. Thank you.

    For many years my family have always used Lymns to arrange their funerals. My mum's funeral was conducted with dignity and compassion. Everything was done in a professional, calm and caring manner, despite the challenging times we are all going through. Also cannot thank Joanna Widdowson at the Clifton branch for everything she did to make sure our mum's wishes were carried out. Sincere thanks to everyone who helped me and my family say goodbye to our dear mum. Patricia and Sheila xx

  • 5 Colleen Wright 7th Apr 2020

    I cannot say enough good things about A.W. Lymn Clifton. My aunt passed away in February, and we had to plan her funeral long distance since we live in Canada. Joanna at the office in Clifton was nothing short of incredible in her work on our behalf, walking me through what needed to be done, and how to do it. When our trip to England to attend the funeral had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she was so supportive and went above and beyond the call of duty. Her thoughtfulness, encouragement and commitment to making sure that my aunt was given the best 'goodbye' meant so much to us. Diane, who officiated at the funeral was wonderful, and delivered a truly special service. We are so grateful to A.W. Lymn Clifton for being there for our aunt when we couldn't. Thank you!

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was a privilege to help you through such a difficult and challenging period, with so many changes in such a short space of time that impacted on you not being able to come to England for the funeral. Both Diane and I really felt for you and it was a pleasure to be able to work together to try to give your Aunt the funeral you had so wanted for her. I promised you that I would accompany your Aunt on her last journey and it was an honour to do so, keeping you all in my thoughts. I look forward to finally meeting you when you are able to visit and lay your Aunt’s ashes to rest. Thank you, Joanna.
