  • 5 Margaret Keeling 2nd Feb 2017

    Lymns experience manner dealing with clients are second to none and nothing is too much trouble. I was able to listen to options on offer and I was able to extract an idea of which way my loved one's funeral should go. On the day everything slotted into place as the Cortege made its way, and we were guided throughout, which resulted into a caring and sensitive funeral plan. The day before the funeral Lesley phone and alerted me of whom would be taking our funeral party. I was delighted Teresa stayed close and was reassured by her guidance before and after the service, nothing was rushed and time was given for us to watch and absorb the three doves being released it was memorable. Our Service went without a hitch, Pastor Stephen was on top form and with his brilliance he gave his audience a sensitive insight of my late husbands character. My heartfelt gratitude goes to Lymns for their expertise and without doubt I would recommend their business for future funerals. Margaret Keeling. 2nd February 2017.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Mrs Keeling, thank you for this wonderful and detailed review. We are pleased that you found Teresa to be reassuring and that she was able to lead the service at an appropriate pace enabling you to absorb the service and dove release. We are also grateful to you for your kind recommendation. Thank you.

  • 5 Ms Glenda Harrold 4th Oct 2016

    Going to make the funeral arrangements for my beloved uncle, Especially when feeling emotional was not an easy task. However, I received from the very start, a very caring supportive and informed step by step guidance of how to put everything into place. My choices were explained clearly without pressure or expectation in any way. It was so much easier for me to deal with more than I could ever have imagined. Everything went very well on the day and the whole event made me feel personally, that I had fulfilled my uncles funeral wishes. Thank you to Lesley and all at A W Lymns of Varney Road, Clifton.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to respond so fully and positively about Lesley and the service received from our staff. Arranging any funeral is not an easy task, so to know our staff made that a little easier is very good to know. We hope that the funeral was everything your Uncle would have wanted it to be remembered by. Thank you.

  • 5 Miss Melanie Gosney 4th Jul 2016

    From the moment they arrived with my dad's coffin and cars they treated my mum with such kindness. She's disabled they bought the wheelchair to the front door and took time to make sure they placed my mum in funeral car and she was comfortable and even put her seat belt on. Even after the service one gentleman wheeled her to the disabled toilet. Didn't rush her when she was looking at flowers and wreaths. Then gently put her back into car and so gently got her out again. Would recommend you 100 % Thank you for all your kindness from the very beginning from the moment I rang to inform you of my beloved dad passing away to the moment my mum exited the funeral car. Such kindness Thank you with all my heart

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
