  • 5 Pam Herrick 15th Mar 2021

    The service we received at a sad time was professional, courteous and friendly. All our contact with Edward was first class, nothing was too much trouble. Personally I appreciated his understanding of the music I required and the selection he made and his attentiveness at the actual funeral. I would recommend Lymns without hesitation.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Pam, thank you for your kind review. I’m really pleased the service met your expectation and the music was well suited. Also, I was glad we were able to spend a few minutes at the care home before the service. Again, thank you send my best wishes to all. Edward.

    Lym’s took care of the funeral arrangements very well and with efficiency and compassion. They communicated with us regularly throughout and we felt confident in them before and on the day of the funeral.  They were very professional  at all times, and put our minds at ease when we had so much to think about.

    It was a privilege to arrange the funeral having met Margaret, and we were all pleased to read your kind words. Thank you, Teresa.

  • 5 Stephen Howells 7th Feb 2021

    The service received was excellent at this time of heartache. I was treated with kindness and compassion with nothing being too much trouble. I was kept informed of the progress all the way to the funeral. On the day everything went like clockwork and nothing had not been accounted for. At such an emotional time it was a relief to be guided through the ceremony from start to finish. I cannot thank them enough.

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.

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.
