The funeral of Peter Allwood was outstanding. Excellent service from all the staff of Lymn’s, all very understanding and compassionate, who immediately knew the kind of funeral we wanted. The family and myself will always be grateful for making a sad occasion into a day to remember. Thankyou so much.

Kim Haddaway 17th Jun 2024

We received excellent guidance and support from Deanna in organising my husband’s funeral. Deanna was very professional, caring and compassionate. She was so helpful with the order of service and dealing with the team at Sherwood Forest Crematorium. Everything went really well on the day.  I would definitely recommend A W Lymn in Hucknall. 

Denise Morley 28th May 2024

    Michelle, One of the hardest things is to lose someone you love especially “your everything” as I could see Mum Audrey was to you. Wherever I could, I wanted to make your time spent with Mum precise, as precise as Audrey was. Big hugs Michelle. I bet she’s jiving now with Blanche. Deanna.

    It is always sad to see a familiar face walk through the door and it was even sadder when John wasn't with you Annette.

What a big character who will be very sadly missed. Deanna.
