The service was excellent. Everything was organised for us with compassion and discretion. The celebrant, John was amazing and did a fantastic eulogy for my mum.

Catherine Clark 8th May 2024

Lymns have conducted several family funerals for us and they do so with absolute professionalism. Teresa is understanding without being sentimental, which is something you don't need at a time like that. Richard, the celebrant gave us a truly beautiful service and several members of the family commented on how lovely it was. Every aspect of Lymns' service is polished and dignified. I rate them exceptionally highly.

Jackie Loveland 6th May 2024

A. W. Lymn of Ruddington were brilliant at organising my mums funeral in April of this year. Teresa came to the house to help with everything that was needed and answered all our questions, so that we did not have to worry about anything. The funeral went smoothly and gave my mum a good send off. This is the third funeral for our family with A.W Lymn in the last three years, I would recommend them highly.

    I can not praise Lymns enough for ensuring everything went well on the special day to remember dad. From the initial enquiry, home visit, the supporting staff at the Chapel of rest through to the funeral itself.

Thank you so much to the whole Lymns team. Tony
