In a time of confusion, emotions and the ability to think straight in what is a very short time to organise the burial of loved ones, you need support and clarity from complete strangers to guide you through both the process of but also the moment of great emotional out pouring on the day, you will not do wrong by asking and putting your trust in Lymn''s to assist in everything that is very new to anyone, the guidance through the professionalism of all the staff before, on the day and after is more than just a business to them. They are human too and understand everything that is alien to the individual. Many thanks to Joanna and especially Nigel for their personal support in our moment of time of reflection for mum. They went out of their way to accomadate all of our expectations and guidance of the technicallaties. Many thanks to all The Needham Family

Mrs Brenda Cragg 2nd Jun 2021

    Brian. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to provide such a long review of the service provided by Joanna, myself and all of our family company, it really is much appreciated. As you are aware I have known your brother Michael for approaching 40 years and it was a privilege to be asked to personally oversee the funeral of your mother. I think I commented on the day that the service in the Chapel was delightful and I was so impressed to see the involvement of so many family and friends and it was a real pleasure to see the younger generation so much involved. On behalf of Joanna and myself we offer our sincere thanks for your high appraisal.

    From start to finish Neil was looked after with dignity and respect ,nothing was too much trouble for the people involved in the arrangements of his funeral,Joanna in particular was patient and pointed us all in the right direction with her gentle manner and etiquette I found that very comforting throughout,the drivers Rob and Dave were dignified and gracious on our last journey with Neil .
    I would certainly recommend to anyone this team of people who made a very heartbreaking time a whole lot easier 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    All the team on the day was happy to help you on Neil’s final journey and we are pleased that everything went as you had wished. It certainly was a heart-breaking time for you, not helped by the fact that so many of his friends couldn’t be there for his funeral but you all did him proud and he had a wonderfully dignified service. Thank you, Joanna.
