I couldn’t have asked for or expected such excellent service. Nothing was too much trouble. Mums funeral went without a hitch.  Thank you for being so caring & understanding 

Sinead Coveney 9th Dec 2017

We could not have asked for a better service from Lyms.  The attention to detail, the support we received at the most difficult of times was outstanding.  Thank you to Brian who helped so much and to all the team on the day.  A very difficult experience made a little easier which we will never forget.

Carole Skinner 3rd Dec 2017

  • 4 Gail Pickard 13th Oct 2017

    How much was raised for Arthritis research? All the staff were brilliant, very polite and friendly.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your positive review, we are pleased that you found the team at Radcliffe to be polite and friendly. I have forwarded your comment onto the team at Radcliffe and asked them to get in touch to let you know the current total for the donations. Our usual practice is to advise clients of the final total of donations received a month following the date of the funeral when they are sent to the charity on your behalf, this is because it is not uncommon for us to receive additional amounts during this time. I am sorry if this was not made clear to you at the time of making the arrangements but are glad that you found the rest of the service to be brilliant. Thank you.
  • 5 Gary Smith 7th Aug 2017

    Emily and Brian were very supportive and patient with the distance with me living in Canada. The day went all to plan, other than a problem with the music but we got through that. All that were concerned were very professional. I would not hesitate to recommend your services .

    Thank you for your positive review and recommendation. We are pleased that Emily and Brian were able to guide you through the arrangements despite the distance involved and are glad that you found them to be supportive and patient. We are sorry to hear that there was a problem with the music selected for the service and both Brian and I would like to thank you for your kind understanding at this time.

  • 5 Jean Cleary 26th Feb 2017

    From the first time we met with Julia at the offices of A. W. Lymn until the funeral was over the service we received was professional but caring and personal. There was no pressure to have anything we did not want but we were pointed in the direction of what was available and introduced to others who could also help to make the actual day run smoothly. At a time when most people are not thinking as clearly as usual it is wonderful to have a lot of the stress removed by someone just saying "Don't worry. We can do that". I would recommend Lymns to anyone needing their services.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind and detailed review of the service you received from Julia and the rest of her team. We are pleased she was able to make the decision making process informative but without pressure, and that nothing was too much trouble for her.
  • 5 Warren Faulconbridge 24th Feb 2017

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you to all of you for this lovely review, we are pleased to see that the service you received throughout from Brian and his team at Radcliffe was excellent.

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.

Read more: What are disbursements

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.
