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.

    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.
  • 5 Sharron Burton 20th Sep 2020

    I could not have had better service from start to finish the help and advice was second to none thank you very much. All the people involved were very kind and understanding.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for you kind words. It was lovely to have the opportunity to talk with you about Mijas and your life there, bringing back memories for me too. Thank you also for bringing the Mustang to the office to look at. Mustang Sharron. Take care and keep smiling. Lindsay.
  • 5 Adrian Wright 2nd Sep 2020

    A really big thank you to Lindsay in the Radcliffe office of A.W. Lymn.  She went above and beyond in making things run as smoothly as possible.  Also a big thank you to Dominic and his team for their efficiency on the day of the funeral in pouring rain. Highly recommended.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was good meeting you both on my visits to your house and on my final visit meeting the new kitten through your window. Thank you for these kind words and take care and keep safe both of you. Lindsay.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words, we are glad that Jane and Lindsay were able to guide you to create a beautifully personalised service with the visual tribute and music from Les Miserables.
  • 5 Robert Dixon 20th Jun 2020

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    From our first meeting, to finding out all about your Mum and making sure we got a Bingo book to go with her dabber, to arranging for the route to pass the Cotgrave welfare where she spent a lot of happy times, you did your Mum proud. Thank you for letting me part of it all. Lindsay.
  • 5 Rebecca Lett (nee Hall) 19th Jun 2020

    Lindsey was lovely - Radcliffe has done all my families funerals and always been brilliant xx

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was nice to finally meet you the other day after all our telephone conversations while you were working grooming the dogs with your clippers. Thank you for your kind words, it was my pleasure to help you and I am always here if there is anything else I can do. Lindsay.
  • 5 Michelle Kemp 15th Jun 2020

    Absolutely brilliant it was so hard for us but Lindsay was so beautiful and lovely from start to finish, she made our last time with dad so special so I would like to thank them all jane too she was so beautiful so Lymns you have done us proud thankyou so much xxxxx

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am so glad that I was able to help you make your dad's wishes come true as a Nottingham Forest supporter and I am grateful to you for this really lovely review, thank you. Lindsay.
  • 5 Helen Tyerman jones 7th Jun 2020

    Excellent from the beginning, not knowing where to turn or even start you took control and informed me off the choices every step off the way and were so companionate in the sorting out that the funeral went ahead just as my dad would have wanted it with no stress to the family.  Words can not say enough thanks from the family and Lynsey was a brick 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was lovely planning your Dad’s funeral with you and hearing of the passion and proudness he had within the Royal Army Ordnance Corps which was a big part of his and your life and shown in the service. He would have been proud of you. Thank you, Lindsay.
  • 5 Steve & Joanne Crossland 5th Jun 2020

    Really friendly and helpful in the planning with everything going really smoothly on the day. We were made to feel at ease and comfortable with the whole process. Would highly recommend them.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your recommendation and your kind words. We are pleased that Lindsay was able to plan for May to have a final trip through Gunthorpe before travelling past her neighbours so they could pay their respects as they were unable to attend the service.
  • 5 Nathan Parker 28th Apr 2020

    Friendly, reliable and welcoming. Turned one of the worst days in my life into a celebration. Nothing was to much bother.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for the lovely comments Nathan. I am glad the visit to Cotgrave on the way to Wilford Hill helped others show their respects to your dad and feel included. Lindsay.
  • 5 Diane Turner 4th Apr 2020

    I couldn't have asked for a better service, every step of the way. My sincere thanks especially to Jane at Radcliffe on Trent. In extremely difficult circumstances she went out of her way to make this occasion personal and bearable for the second time in 9 months. Thankyou xx

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am so priviledged to have been able to help you again and am truly sorry that you have had to deal with loosing both your parent in such a short space of time. Thank you and take care, Jane.
  • 5 Penny Richardson 18th Mar 2020

    Lindsay at Lymns in Radcliffe on Trent was brilliant. She took me on a journey of what happens now and next and on the day of my father's funeral. She explained how other people in the process worked and what they did. She spent time talking to me about the services they offer and was able to make the links with local people like the church and the priest. On the day, Jane was the Funeral Director. She and her team were so discrete but very helpful. They made sure that I understood what was happening, what I should do and what my family should. Knowing what to expect was really helpful. Above all they treated my Dad with respect and were kind and sensitive to everyone who gathered to say goodbye to him.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words Penny you did you dad proud in making sure that he had his wishes even the weather stopped raining and the sun shone on the day. (The wellies didn’t need to come out.) The Photos you had chosen for the order of service reflected on what lovely family times you had with two amazing parents. Thank you for letting us be part of your journey. Lindsay.
  • 5 Beard Michael 28th Feb 2020

    We received a very caring, appropriate and efficient service from Russell and the team. Thankyou for contributing to a special day for a special lady.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that Russell's care and attention to detail helped ensure that a special day was created in memory of Catherine. Thank you.
  • 5 Samantha Saunders 25th Feb 2020

    Absolutely  superb  service .  The best people to give your loved one the best possible send off .  We can not recommend them highly enough , from start to finish they could be more caring and helpful . 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Lovely words from an amazing family who gave the best to both Mum and Dad. Thank you for the lovely letter you wrote to myself and Jane it meant so much to us both. Lindsay
  • 4 Ian Young 24th Feb 2020

    Everything went to plan with the minimum of fuss. Lindsay and Jane were very helpful and sensitive throughout the process which made a difficult time  easier for us to bear as a family.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased to hear that everything went to plan and that Jane and Lindsay were helpful and sensitive throughout. We do however note your 4* rating so if there was anything else we could have done to help you then we would welcome this feedback. Thank you.
