Sarah Dornyei 11th Jul 2022

The team at Lymn were really good. At one point, I was wondering why they hadn't contacted me when the funeral was only a week away and there were so many things still to be decided on. However, they had been in ongoing communication with the pastor of our church, and when I contacted them about any aspect of the service(s), they acted really quickly and professionally. Everything Lymn did was excellent quality, from the flowers to the driving and the funeral was a beautiful and fitting occasion, which will be of comfort to me for the rest of my life. Thank you.

    Thank you for your kind comments, I’m pleased that every thing went well and that the service was of comfort to you. I’m sorry you felt I did not keep in contact at one stage but we were waiting for the Church pastor to return from Holiday to be able to confirm the funeral and meet with you to discuss the service and this meant we were unable to progress further was certainly aspects. Thank you again, Teresa

  • 5 Simon Dyer 17th Mar 2022

    Fortunately, I do not have to deal regularly with bereavement, but on the occasion of the recent death of my Mother we dealt with A.W.Lymn Ruddington. Professional, sympathetic and caring. All the arrangements for looking after my Mother from her home to her burial a few weeks later proceeded with the minimum of fuss and upset.
    Thoroughly recommended, if that’s what one does with a Funeral Director. 

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    I am very pleased that we were able to see you through the process and help provide a fitting tribute to your mother. I hope we managed to achieve the funeral she would have approved of. Thank you, Andrew

    John`s service at Wilford Hill was every thing I could have wished for the journey was over & above what I asked for which was to drive past Notts Cricket Ground we did the full circuit of the ground, in his honour which he would have loved. Teresa was helpful through out a difficult time & was very patient with US as we made our decisions. Thank you so much.

    Thank you for your kind comments, they are much appreciated, and I am glad that the route taken on the day meant so much to you as a family. Teresa
