  • 5 Claire Senior 3rd Jul 2017

    Caroline and Catherine at AW Lymn have made the horrible process of saying goodbye to our mum as painless as possible. Their compassionate, friendly and timely service has left such a positive impression on the last three nightmarish weeks, and they have succeeded in giving mum the dignified yet highly personal service that would have seen her smile and give the thumbs up. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you very much for taking the time to leave this lovely positive review about the service received at Hucknall and in particular from Caroline and Catherine. We are pleased that their friendly and compassionate manner allowed you to create highly personal service for Mum and one that she would have given a thumbs up to. Thank you.

    The service I received can only be described as wonderful and totally professional. From the moment of contact by phone with Caroline to a face to face meeting with Catherine you feel at ease and that you are valued, at what is a very difficult time. Arrangements before and on the day went very well and made the burden so much easier. I have nothing but praise and thanks to all at Lymn's ,especially Catherine who is a credit to the company.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Mr Saunders, thank you for you wonderful and detailed review of the service provided by both Catherine and Caroline at our Hucknall office.

Catherine has asked me to add that it was her pleasure to help you once again at this sad time.

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.
