  • 5 Allan Jamieson 6th Jul 2020

    We were very pleased with the dignified and helpful way in which all staff of A W Lymn conducted themselves. Courtney Kelham-Giddy described in detail all options and castings for every aspect of the funeral, with no pressure or time constraints being placed on our decision making. She maintained regular contact after our initial meeting to ensure that everything was progressing to time. On the day of my wife’s funeral all staff were very attentive and ensured that the service and burial were exactly as we wanted. We would have no reservations about recommending A W Lymn to anyone.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are really pleased that Courtney kept you well informed throughout the arrangement process, giving ample time and detailed information so that you could make your decisions. We are also glad that everything was exactly as planned on the day and we thank you for your kind words and for your recommendation.

    I went to Lymn's 3 years ago when my mother passed away ,I was very pleased with the way they handled everything So when my father passed away I decided to use them again. Everything went smoothly even with covid 19 to deal with. Organizing a funeral can seem daunting but with Lymn's to guide you can do it.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 4 Ann Jardine 31st Mar 2020

    Due to corona virus and age group due to attend, I am afraid it was a reduced service, 4 family members only. In very unfortunate circumstances and late change to arrangements, once again Teresa proved to be a wonderful asset to your company. With many thanks to Richard who too, had to alter service arrangements.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are really sorry that the current Coronavirus situation has caused additional distress at this already upsetting time but we are glad that Teresa and her team were able to help guide you throughout. Thank you.

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.

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.

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.
