  • 5 Sharon Gibbs 25th Oct 2021

    The friendliness and professionalism of everybody at Lymn's shone through throughout this difficult time. They all knew exactly what they needed to do and guided us through the maze of paperwork and procedures required to deal with our deceased mother. Although there were some problems with the registration of death, communication with Lymn's was second to none so we were able to expedite the process with their help. We were never left wondering what was happening at any point in time. Particular thanks to Caroline for being our main point of contact and to Richard for doing a wonderful job of the tribute. Thanks also to Katherine, Louise, Jenny and everybody else we came in contact with who helped make the funeral day go smoothly.

    A.W. Lymn, Hucknall Team replied
    How lovely of you, Sharon, to take the time to leave such a comprehensive and kind review. It was a privilege to care for your family at such a sad time and Caroline joins me in wishing you well for the future. if there is ever anything more we can do to help then please just give her a call. Thank you, Richard.

  • 5 Clayton Ford 11th Sep 2021

    Very friendly and empathetic service. Guided us all the way throughout. Lymns has the most prestige funeral cars in Hucknall. Very competitive prices ( we expected them to be the most expensive but they wasn’t).  I would highly recommend them to anyone. I will without doubt use them again. I would also highly recommend their celebrant Richard who did a tremendous job. Visiting us to find out all the background information about our loved one and piecing it all together into a perfect reading.  Thank you to all the staff involved. 

    A.W. Lymn, Hucknall Team replied
    Clayton, thank you for taking the time to leave this kind review. It was a privilege to care for you and your family under such tragic circumstances. You were a great help to me in preparing the celebration of Steven’s life and I know you were also a great support to Keeley and to Steven’s dad too. Richard.

    Mrs Marshall, it is so kind of you to take the time to thank the "Team". All staff were touched by the courtesy extended to them on the day, the number of people in attendance at the crematorium for the wonderful celebration of your husband's life was surely testament to a true gentleman..

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.

Read more: How to arrange a funeral

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.
