  • 5 David Babbs 8th May 2021

    All contacts, whether by phone, email or in person were prompt, efficient and sensitively handled. Special mention to Emma for her caring and very helpful manner. Thanks too to Mark who looked after us so well on the day of the funeral, gently explaining and guiding things along without ever making us feel hurried. The Lymn's Services Brochure which explained what to do and the options available was very helpful too, being clear, concise and well-illustrated.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Dr. Babbs, thank you for this lovely review, as well as the letter sent to head office this week. We really do appreciate your feedback. Thank you.
  • 5 Maureen Thompson 17th Apr 2021

    Jane and the team guide you through every stage of the funeral and advise regarding registering the death and whom to inform.  They are extremely professional and sensitive throughout. I would definitely recommend Lyons fantastic service. 

    A.W. Lymn, Radcliffe Team replied
    It was my pleasure to help you and your family through this difficult time and I am glad that our advice made the process a little simpler for you. Thank you, Jane.

  • 5 Caroline Fielding 5th Mar 2021

    My Husbands funeral was conducted by the Radcliffe on Trent brunch on 1/3/2021 & I can’t praise them enough! The Chaps who collected him from home the day he died were lovely, very professional & reassuring. The  Funeral itself went incredibly smoothly. All Lymn’s staff were 100% Professional. Insincerely hope we don’t need your services for years to come, but wouldn’t look anywhere else if we did. A BIG Thank you to everyone, for making a very Sad day, stress free! Thank you. Caroline Fielding

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Caroline, thank you for this lovely review, it was an absolute pleasure helping you and your family and I am glad that you were so happy with all I did to help you. I will also make sure that Andrew and Dean know how pleased you were with them. Thank you and stay safe, Jane.
  • 5 Vanessa Garfield 3rd Mar 2021

    I felt like Jane looked after the whole thing from start to finish, nothing felt like too much trouble and every detail was checked and then checked again to make sure that the day went exactly as planned. I can't than Jane and the team enough for looking after Mum and the family on such a sad occasion

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that Jane's attention to detail ensured that everything went exactly as planned on the day and took some of the stress away from the arrangements for you. Jane has asked that I pass her personal thanks to you for this lovely review. Thank you.
  • 5 Clegg Diana 22nd Feb 2021

    They were very careful to listen and remember from one conversation to the next. They were helpful to explain and give suggestions. The Covid made things much harder... but I felt reassured all the time. Having travelled for hours to get there, meeting Jane who greeted me so gently made me feel relaxed and ready to start the formal part of the day.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It is gratifying to read how much Janes support, kindness and attention to detail meant to you throughout this difficult time and she joins me in thanking you for taking the time to leave this lovely review.
  • 5 Jane Graham 15th Feb 2021

    We have now used Lymns Funeral Directors (the Radcliffe-on-Trent branch) for both my mum and my dad's funerals. Their service is absolutely excellent, they are so kind and helpful and organise everything expertly. I would like to mention Jane Keetley, who assisted us and who was friendly yet so professional, and enabled everything to go so smoothly, both before and on the day. We have no hesitation in recommending Lymns, whom you can totally depend on at what is such a sad and stressful time.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are grateful to you for taking the time to leave this very kind and detailed review about our service and in particular the professional yet friendly service you received from Jane on each occasion that she has helped you and your family. Thank you also for your recommendation as this means a lot to us.
  • 5 Glennis Oakes 12th Feb 2021

    The whole experience could not be bettered. I would rate as 10 stars if I could. The kindness shown was amazing and the attention to detail could not be bettered. I would recommend A.W. Lymn Radcliffe in a heartbeat.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Glennis, I felt so privileged to be able to help you and Elaine through this very sad time and I am truly grateful to you for this wonderful review, thank you, Jane.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    To Jon, Gill and Peter it was lovely to see that Dad had left his wishes written with his order of service and plan, and it was lovely that you followed everything exactly as he wanted. Thank you, keep safe everyone and take care. Lindsay.
  • 5 Christopher Bull 13th Dec 2020

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Chris for your kinds words you are an amazing brother but please don’t forget the weeds in the garden. Take care and keep safe. Lindsay.
  • 5 Dawn Kenton 12th Dec 2020

    Lindsay and the team at A.W. Lymn in Radcliffe were amazing. I have never had to organise a funeral before and did not know where to start, I can not recommend Lymn's highly enough. At a time when it's really difficult to think and make decisions Lindsay and the team guided us through, making everything straightforward and not at all overwhelming. They kept in touch regularly in the run up to the funeral, making sure we were ok, making sure we were happy with our choices and taking care of everything. Thank you for your professionalism, warmth and kindness.  

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    To Alan, Dawn and Andrew, what a lovely family you are and the support you have given to each other was lovely to see. I will always remember the beautiful smile on the photo on the order of service of Norma and Alan. Your fond memories of Norma when you came to see her in the chapel. Sorry I did not meet you Sarah but all keep safe and take care. Thank you, Lindsay.
  • 5 Alan Betts 28th Nov 2020

    Lindsay was kind and professional throughout, everything worked perfectly- thank you

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Alan for your kind words. Although we did not meet our phone calls made it feel like we had. I send you all the best wishes for yourself and Sue and of course for your Barbara too. Take care and keep safe. Lindsay.
  • 5 Richard French 27th Nov 2020

    The service and support given through the whole period was excellent and much appreciated.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Richard for your kind words. I know we did not meet in person but from the chats on the phone organising Dad’s funeral I felt I knew you and your Dad and I wish your mum and the family the very best. Keep safe, Lindsay.
  • 5 Wendy Lister 21st Nov 2020

    Everything was dealt with efficiently but sensitively, and our contact at the office in Radcliffe (Lyndsey) was very kind, approachable and supportive.  She explained everything that we needed to know and was very patient.  On the day, the funeral director and staff were unobtrusive but professional and everything went as well as could be hoped for in the sad circumstances.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words. It was lovely to meet with all the family to speak about Jim and to find out about all the time he worked at the Railway. I am sorry I did not meet Kevin but am glad he managed to come over from America and you could be together as a family. Remember, Hazel, that you have good family and neighbours and that they are there when you need them. Take care, Lindsay.
  • 5 Barbara Newsome 10th Nov 2020

    Thank you to Jane and Lindsay for their help and support. They gave me time whenever I needed it (and I needed it quite a lot) and professional guidance that managed to be kind and human at the same time. Thanks also for looking after Bob and all the family members who came to see him to say goodbye. The funeral itself went perfectly and it was only Covid that spoilt things by preventing us from getting together with friends and family after the service. But I still wish the cherry tree was still there! Barbara x

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Hi Barbara, It was a pleasure to be able to help you and your children at this very sad time. The Funeral Service was second to none, with family and friends making the service bespoke as they spoke about Bob’s life. I too am sad about the Cherry tree and miss it in the spring. It’s been a marker for most people in the village for a long time but our grounds are still lovely especially in the spring and summer. Thank you. Jane.
  • 5 Clive Horn 3rd Nov 2020

    From start to finish Lymns service was excellent, many thanks to all and especially Lindsay for her excellent advice and understanding.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Pat and Clive, Thank you for your lovely words. David sounded like an amazing Husband and Dad and everything he did in his life was so interesting, thank you for sharing the memories with me. Take care both of you. Lindsay.
  • 5 Paul Parkinson 31st Oct 2020

    Very pleased with how the funeral preparations went and especially with the arrangements by Lynsey at Radcliffe on Trent branch. Also, impressed by the readings at the service made by Malcom.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    To Paul Thank you for your kind words it was lovely to meet the whole family when you left from Radcliffe to go to mums service. Also very interesting that your number plate "cavity" was Dad’s with dad being a dentist. Take care and Johanna too. Thanks Lindsay.
  • 5 Lynne Miles 26th Oct 2020

    Everything was handled in a very caring, sympathetic manner and with great efficiency. We are so grateful to all the staff for their support during this sad time.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Lynne, Your mum sounded so lovely and interesting, being one of the first women to know how to use a computer and still using her ipad at the age of 100 years young. You are a fighter Lynne and you fought for your mum even with the doctors after she died, we know where you get that spark from. Take care of yourself and John and thank you. Lindsay.
  • 5 Jo Spencer 28th Sep 2020

    It is always a daunting task to have to book a funeral. I need not have worried. From the initial consultation I felt in safe hands. Nothing was too much trouble, and I was taken at a pace to suit me. Nothing felt rushed. Every detail explained and reiterated to make sure "we were all singing from the same hymn sheet". (forgive the pun!!). It was reassuring to get a telephone call the day before the funeral just to go through everything. Lindsay, is a true asset to the company. The years of experience as a business not only shows in their attention to detail, but they still retain that family and personal touch. The company has obviously progressed to meet with the times. I felt they wrapped me in a huge blanket and guided me through the process. We did have a little hiccup regarding the flowers, but Jane calmly dealt with the situation, again another example of their professionalism. My friend said " Lymn's........well they have certainly got it right" I felt so safe in your hands as I am sure did my mum. Kindest Regards Jo Spencer ps (love the keepsake box)

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Joanna, Thank you for your lovely review and your kind words. Mum had her final journey on what should have been Flintham show day, travelling through Screveton Village and saying goodbye to Beans farm and the other villages on her way. I am only sorry that there was the slight hiccup with the flowers but am glad Jane handled this well for you. I hope Rolo is behaving and everytime I go into waitrose I will think of your mum with her basket or two! (James with one basket). Enjoy Norfolk next time you go and of course Woodhall Spa and the happy memories we have spoken about which it was lovely to share. Keep smiling and always remember the words of the Afterglow say and mean everything. Thank you, Lindsay.
