A very sad and difficult day for myself & my family was also made into a very special day - if that makes any sense at all. That was down to us meeting 3 of the most lovely people in the business, all unique in their own way with such compassion, care and professionalism shown to us at all times. It was the small touches that you remember and mean so much, even to making sure that someone was in charge of locking our door before the cortège left. The memory boxes are such a lovely keep sake and something to treasure.  Have received nothing but wonderful comments not only about my Husband /  Church Service but also with regards to A W Lymn to the smartness of the staff, the Funeral cortège and their overall compassion and professionalism shown .  It was never in question that I would ask AW Lymn of Ruddington to act on our behalf, the premises are situated in such a peaceful and tranquil area with such lovely gardens. I knew my Husband would be well looked after - he certainly was.  My self and family thank each and everyone.

    Mrs. Goddard, I must admit I found it difficult to read the wonderful comments you have written about Teresa, Edward, the rest of the team and I. It was clear on the day that your husband was held in such high esteem by his family, friends and colleagues, and the small part played in celebrating his life by A. W. Lymn has clearly helped you and your sons. We always aim to serve our clients in the best possible way, and are glad that we met that expectation on this occasion. Thank you.

    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.

    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.

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

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.
