Alan George Hodson 20th Feb 2023

Very good in all aspects from booking an appointment to the service at the crematorium. All employees very supportive.

Kathleen Rowe 30th Jan 2023

The whole process was professional, friendly and considerate. The undertaker listened carefully to our wishes. On the day he and his team were supportive but unobtrusive. Everything went according to plan. The collection of ashes was timely and dealt with sensitively. Having had Lymn’s recommended by several local people I would have no hesitation in recommending them myself.

    We have used A. W. Lymn twice in the last two years and have been very pleased with their services. They were very helpful, giving us guidance from start to finish. A special mention to Teresa Spencer, who was always there to support and reassure us along the way. Also Malcolm Barham, the Celebrant who gave a very personal tribute to my dad which is what he would have wanted.

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    It was a honour to arrange Aubrey’s funeral and to have met Mrs Bowskill who told me about their time in Australia, and I'm glad that you were pleased with the service Malcolm took for you. Thank you, Teresa.
  • 5 Elliot Hunnam 23rd Dec 2022

    Everything was as expected with A.W Lymns. Superb professional service. The day went smoothly. Teresa was lovely & calmly guided us through the arrangements at the Ruddington funeral home. As my brother was transported to the crematorium in my own camper van, Gary & Dominic were there to help at the funeral home & crematorium. We have used Lymns in the past & will certainly use them again in the future. Many thanks.

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    It’s always a privilege to be asked to help a family make a service personal and on this occasion we certainly achieved this. I'm pleased that Paul got to make is final journey in a VW Camper and the gorilla mask was a definite hit! Thank you for your very kind comments. Teresa & Dominic.

  • 5 Paul Barber 4th Oct 2022

    A W Lymn provided a truly excellent, caring service for our family following the passing of our father, Fred Barber. Every detail was meticulously looked after and we were given advice on every aspect of the funeral process. Thank you, Lymns for creating such a special day

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    It was a privilege to arrange your father’s funeral and to hear that he was a bell ringer at all saints church for over 30 years. Also that he had travelled to most countries in the world and kept a complete log of when and where he went, who he went with and also the friends he met. He will be greatly missed by all and I hope Mavis settles into her new home in Dorset. Thank you, Teresa.

  • 5 Donald George Peel 22nd Aug 2022

    A totally professional and first rate service from first contact to the excellent post funeral care. I can't praise all of the staff in Ruddington highly enough for their empathy, organisation and understanding of exactly how to make our funeral wishes a reality. I simply had to be guided by them on all matters and to make easy decisions about what happened and Lymn Rose turned it all into a perfect day.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Don, you are too kind given the most difficult time you and Holly have gone through with the loss of Katie. Teresa, I and all of our team thank you for placing your trust in us.

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    Thank you for this very kind review. I am sorry that it was necessary for you to require our services twice in such a short space of time but I do hope that our support and assistance with decisions made this difficult time a little more bearable. If there is anything else I can do to help you please just ask. Teresa.
  • 5 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.

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    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 LISA PURNELL 4th Jun 2022

    As we had used the services of Lymn’s at Ruddington for my Dad’s funeral 14 years ago, I was confident they would provide an excellent service. Teresa was kind and professional throughout and everything ran smoothly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
