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)

    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.

    Outstanding. From the upsetting moment I had to call them out in the early hours of the morning, to the funeral and after support, Lymns have simply been oustanding. The team at Hucknall manage to balance being professional, efficient and organised with being friendly, empathetic and caring. They sensitively guided me through the right choices for my mum and the day ran so smoothly, it was just right. Special mention to Caroline and Catherine, at no point did I ever doubt everything would be anything but perfect, due to their care and attention. Thank you. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you or taking the time to leave this positive and detailed review about the service provided by Caroline and Catherine at Hucknall.
