  • 5 Julian Prendergast 18th Jun 2020

    From start to finish, at what was an emotional time for all concerned with the funeral of my father; I have to say that Catherine Broome from A.W. Lymn’s took all the hassle & stress away from myself & the family which was priceless.  Catherine was a joy to deal with and took care of all the arrangements for all family members and her attention to detail was exemplary.  Nothing was too much trouble and she provided a real personal touch as well as being pivotal in organising everything.  Our collective thanks to Catherine and the rest of the team at Lymns.  Thank you!  The Prendergast Family.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Julian, I was honoured that you rang me to help you with your father’s funeral and lovely to meet your sister’s, Rebecca & Naomi. I know you wanted everything to be spot on for Dad and I’m glad that everything was achieved. I send my love to you all and I am here if you need me further. Thank you, Catherine.

  • 5 Ros White 4th Jun 2020

    I cannot recommend lymns highly enough. Caroline is absolutely amazing.  I was so overwhelmed to begin with because of having to organise everything over the phone and through emails because of the lockdown, but she literally held my hand over the phone and walked me through it every step of the way. I would have been totally lost without her.  And David on the day of the funeral was amazing too. The whole experience was made that much better because of the care, compassion and empathy that they have. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for getting our family through this difficult time. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this wonderful review, particularly with regards to the care and compassion shown by Caroline and David through these difficult times. We are glad that Caoline was able to arrange with the crematorium for you to have seating for all the family and that special touches such as this made the whole sad experiences better for you. Thank you.

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.
