    Everything went well. No problems once date had been set.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this positive review and also for your kind words about the service provided by Joanna. It was indeed disappointing that there was a delay in booking the timing for the funeral due to the availability of the minister originally requested at the timing you requested. We are pleased that once another minister with greater flexibility was found your preferred timings could be accommodated and things then progressed satisfactorily.

    The way they looked after my dad was wonderful and so caring. We had a vintage London double decker bus for the funeral. It was the best way to see my dad. After we got back people said how nice and unique. All I could say was we went together. One last trip with my dad. Thank for all you did. A thompson

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that you were able to create a bespoke and meaningful last journey for Dad by using our Routemaster bus and would thank you for this kind review.
  • 5 Mr John Pearson 18th Aug 2017

    As an only sibling I was required to arrange my mother's funeral. As I have never had to organise/arrange a funeral before, and obviously very bereft, Lesley at Lymns Clifton at all times was empathic, considerate yet highly professional. Anything I was unaware of she talked through all of the options and left us to arrive at our own meaningful choices. She was always prompt and courteous. On the day of the funeral and burial all of the staff were again highly compassionate and professional. Everything went perfectly and was a very beautiful and fitting tribute to my mother. There was even a basket of fresh rose petals to throw on to the coffin at the burial, something we had not considered. It is lovely knowing that at the end of her life my mother was given the very best of service and attention to detail. I cannot recommend and thank  Lymns highly enough. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this kind and detailed review, we are pleased that the support and care provided by Lesley helped you on the sad occasion of having to arrange you Mother's funeral and are glad that the extra small touches further enhanced the beautiful service that you had created for her.

  • 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 Steve Bromhead 27th Jan 2017

    From the 1st phone call I made to Teresa and the subsequent meeting with her, everything was handled in a very supportive and efficient way.
    All the cars turned up on time and the proceedure at Wilford Hill was very smooth.
    Could not have asked for better service.

    many thanks

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this detailed and positive review. We are glad that Teresa made you feel so well looked after from the first phone call and that everything ran smoothly for you on the day.
