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.

    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

    A.W.Lymn at Clifton were professional, compassionate, accommodating and kind from the first notification through to the committal and beyond. They were first rate. I would recommend them (and do) to anyone who is thinking about which Funeral Director to employ.

    Austin, thank you for your five-star review and for your very kind words, which are much appreciated. Sharon had a unique calmness and kindness about her, which was reflected in the large attendance at both the church at the crematorium – it was testament to how much loved she was and how well people thought of her. You and your family did Sharon proud. Take care, Joanna
