    The service was excellent from start to finish, both kind and supportive. The organisation was superb and anything that was needed from me put clearly, simply and with great respect. The day of the funeral went very smoothly, everything at the right place, at the right time and not rushed. I felt proud of the send-off we had managed. Highly professional all round.

  • 4 Sue Bugg 26th Sep 2016

    Just the smell when we visited our boy, so distressing at the time. We couldn't kiss him or hold his hand and this just added to the distress. It was sorted eventually Just wish it was sorted at the start. Otherwise the service given was very good. We still asking for some help and are sure we will get all the help we need. X

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind review of the service Gary, Teresa and Dominic provided for you. I am truly sorry that the circumstances of Michael’s death led to the initial difficulties in the Chapel of Rest, and I am pleased that we were able to make it more comfortable for people to be able to sit with him. Thank you for your understanding, and you have my assurance that our staff will offer any help that they can.

    From the first initial contact Lymns were very professional and supportive. Gary at the Ruddington office guided us to make arrangements to fit our needs, and was especially helpful in making sure we were able to meet timescales for visitors from abroad. The civil celebrant recommended was excellent, all the items ordered and requested including the order of service were of high quality. Teresa and her team were very helpful on the day and everything was arranged perfectly for a fitting tribute to our much loved father.

    Many thanks for looking after my mum so well.

  • 5 David Beardall 14th Mar 2016

    Organisation excellent in all aspects.

  • 4 Paul selby 7th Mar 2016

    Teresa, Gary and Dominic at the Ruddington Office and Tony who led the day were all excellent. The funeral needed to be held within a week and they managed to pull this off, which was fantastic. There was one area that gave a slight problem - accuracy of recorded details, or their re-production. All was sorted out quickly but I needed to carefully check dates/names. The compassion, care and support we received was outstanding.
