    Jane. Thank you for your lovely review. We were all saddened by the death at such a young age but are pleased that the services of Teresa and her team at Ruddington and myself and the staff on the day proved to be of the standard and at the pace that you had hoped. I do however think that the support and assistance of your sister-in-law Julia who is part of our team at A W Lymn should not be underestimated. Nigel.

  • 5 Carol Goddard 7th Mar 2023

    A W Lymn Ruddington are such a compassionate caring team from start to finish. I cannot thank everyone enough, from the initial contact with Theresa, Gary and all the staff on the day.

    The team lead by Edward Martin who was so caring and professional were brilliant - all the staff were impeccably smart, and the fleet of cars were immaculate, along with the floral tributes. Nothing was too much trouble on the day - it was perfect, a typical village Funeral. 


    We had comments as below:

    “ A W Lymn always seem to have the edge over anyone else”

    “Please don’t take this the wrong way, although a sad occasion, it’s been brilliant”

    “ So caring, approachable, and smart - everything was perfect for you”


    You should all take pride that AW LYMN made it possible to give our Uncle Bernard a good send off, it was exactly how he would have wanted it. You did us proud. 

    Thank you to everyone. 

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    Carol, may I thank you for this glowing appraisal that you have kindly shared about Bernard’s funeral. We very much appreciate your comments about the turnout of the staff, cleanliness of the cars and quality of the flowers. Such kind words really do make a difference to us, and I will ensure they are passed on to the team. It was an incredible honour for me to have conducted the service for Bernard, and I agree with you that a traditional village funeral was just right for such a traditional man. He now rightly rests in the village he spent many happy years in and loved so much. From us all, thank you. Edward.
  • 5 Gillian Wilson 4th Mar 2023

    I had full confidence that the service offered by AW Lymn would be totally reliable and I was not disappointed. Every aspect of my husband's funeral was dealt with efficiently and sympathetically.

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    It was a privilege to be asked to arrange the funeral of Professor Wilson and I am glad that you were pleased with all that we did for you. Thank you, Teresa.
