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.

  • 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.

    From the bottom of my heart I cannot thank Caroline enough for everything she has been a rock throughout the most difficult time for me, from phonecalls to check on me to making sure my dad had everything with him that I asked. The service was exactly how I wanted it and Russell was fantastic on the day. It’s still raw and hard but I know that without Caroline and the rest of the team at hucknall lymns I wouldn’t of got through it the way I have  Thank you so much  Beckie and family  (Graham’s family)

  • 5 Neil Turner 2nd Aug 2019

    Despite all the delays, caused by us, everything we asked for was accommodated. Then again I have always thought that Neil is one of your best funeral arrangers, LOL. Seriously though Catherine and Caroline were wonderfully professional throughout. Everything was done with the wishes of my family in mind. Obstacles were overcome with ease, and everything went so smoothly on the day that we could just relax and remember Mum and her life. Great job guys and thanks to all involved.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Neil, thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely review. We are glad that Catherine and Caroline were able to meet your high expectations and look after everything for you so that you and the family could relax and simply remember Mum. We are sorry that you have had to get back in touch due to such sad circumstances but it was lovely to hear from you again.

  • 5 Robert Anthony Walker 8th Jul 2019

    We could not have asked for a better person than Catherine to organise the funeral or a better person than Rebecca to be the celebrant - both exceptional.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Mr Walker. Thank you for your lovely comments in regards to the services provided by both Catherine and Rebecca, they are much appreciated. I am really pleased that the staff and associates of our family company proved to be so helpful to you, your family and all the friends present. Nigel Lymn Rose, Company Chairman
  • 5 Joanne Hicklin 24th Jun 2019

    A.W.Lymns have been so helpful, understanding and gone above and beyond to make sure Mum's day goes smoothly. The support that they have given Dad has been lovely. They are like family and I will recommend to anyone who asks. Want to thank them for all that they are doing for us.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

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.
