The care that Emma gave us was fantastic. She was very supportive and professional and dealt with all of our concerns with ease. Our celebrant, Malcom Barnham was great too. He knew what we wanted and made mum's funeral service a lovely ceremony. Thank you to everyone at Radcliffe on Trent.

Amanda Morledge 19th Mar 2024

From the very beginning we were looked after and guided through the whole process of planning and implementing a funeral which reflected our mum/grandmother's wishes. Emma our funeral planner was brilliant and so kind and patient...especially when our plans kept having to change owing to various elements of our family abroad travel plans were changing! It was a comfort to know that everything was in order and we didn't have to worry about anything not happening as we had planned.

Vareena Amos 11th Mar 2024

Amazing staff. Compassionate and helpful throughout the complete process. Can't thank them enough for making a difficult situation more easy.

    Thank you for your very kind words, they really do mean so much. It was a real honour to support you all through this sad time in making the funeral arrangements you wished for, for Joan. I’m so pleased that everything came together for the day of the funeral and there was even some sunshine. From the stories you told me, and the photos you showed me, Joan sounded like an amazing lady. Wishing you all safe travels home. Emma.

    Emma did and incredible job in helping us arrange Tim's funeral, she helped and guided us through what was a very difficult time. Her patience and kind words were very calming and reassuring for us as a family and on the actual day of the funeral the team of lymns really came together to help us through the day we appreciate everything you did for us, thank you for everything.

  • 5 Lynda Doyle 18th Feb 2024

    Myself and my husband would like to pass on our heartfelt thanks for the love and kindness shown by Lymn’s on the passing of my mother in law.




    From the moment we made contact nothing was too much trouble.




    Dominic Lister was the funeral director for my late father in law 12 years ago and seemed only right to ask for him again. Without hesitation he agreed. This guy is a true gentleman and a credit to your business.




    The care and love even given to my mother in law, being dressed in her own clothes and putting her hair in the scrunchie as she didn’t like it in her eyes. They made sure her hair was at the back as not to make her uncomfortable. This was just lovely thank you.❤️




    Finally Emma at Radcliffe what can we say. Just amazing. Caring for Johanna at Radcliffe and looking after us when we come to visit her in the chapel of rest. Always on hand throughout for a hug.




    Thank you A.W. Lymn you have excelled once again.

    A.W. Lymn, Radcliffe Team replied
    Thank you for your really kind words, they really do mean so much. It was so lovely to meet you both, but I’m just so sorry it was under these circumstances. Johanna was so obviously loved by you both and you did her very proud. Emma & Dominic
  • 5 Louise Callaghan 6th Feb 2024

    We sadly lost our Dad at the end of last year and when to see Emma at AW Lymn from the first meeting to the funeral itself we knew we had made the right choice, Emma was fantastic and extremely helpful, giving us all the information we neede to make the right choices, she was compassionate and extremely helpful, offering support with all we needed to do. Thank you Emma and the team for making a really difficult day that little bit easier and very special to us.

    A.W. Lymn, Radcliffe Team replied
    Hi Louise, thank you for your really kind words, they mean so much to me. It was lovely to meet you all, but I’m just so sorry it was under these circumstances.

  • 5 Sarah Tinson 21st Jan 2024

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Gary and family. Thank you for placing your trust in us for Mum, as you did previously for Dad. I hope all went as well as it could have done on the day, David was pleased to be able to drive the hearse again for you. Kindest regards.
  • 2 Richard Pentreath 9th Jan 2024

    We were promised that the music for my mother's funeral would be either plugged into the church sound system or played on Lymn's own speakers so that it would be "nice and loud" to accompany the hymn singing. This was not the case. The congregation could not hear the music so, in the main just stood in silence throughout the two hymns, wondering what was happening.
    At such a difficult time a family just wants their loved one to be treated with respect and dignity. Friends and relatives want their departed to have the service that they would have wanted. This should have been a celebration of my mother's life and her love of hymn signing.
    It is very upsetting that Lymn's performance was so poor on this occasion.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Mr. Pentreath, We are sorry that the music played at Church was not as you had wished. In order to enable the funeral on the date you requested we unusually covered all of the hymns at St Mary’s with our portable music system, as the organist was unavailable and you did not want to look at an alternative date. The Funeral Director and Usher have both commented that the music system worked as expected, so we really are sorry that you and they recall such a different version of events to. We trust that the rest of the service offered by Emma, Louise and our team was to the standard you would have expected, and that the funeral in Penzance went well. It is disappointing to receive a two star review, and to read your comments about failing to show respect and dignity to your late Mother, when having now spoken with you it is confirmed the only issue was with the volume of the music in church. Thank you.
  • 5 Susan Bennett 8th Jan 2024

    From our first contact everyone was so professional and sincere. Excellent service, great care was taken that there was no pressure, no sales pitch just genuine care for our dear mother and family.
    I couldn't be more grateful for all involved. Thanks to Emma for all her support.

    A.W. Lymn, Radcliffe Team replied
    Hi Susan, thank you for your kind words. It was lovely to meet you and all the family, I’m just sorry it was under these circumstances. I feel so honoured to have been able to support you all in arranging mum’s funeral. You all did mum proud, she was obviously very very loved. Emma.
  • 5 Liz Handbury 1st Jan 2024

    Can’t thank Lymn’s  funerals too highly. From help with planning , music etc to actual funeral everything was executed and performed very professionally. Many thanks       Liz Handbury

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Liz, thank you for your kind words. There is no good time, but going through what you did with Bill at Christmas would I am sure have made it harder than ever. It was the very least we could have done for you and your family. Thank you.
  • 5 Anthony Simpson 17th Dec 2023
