  • 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

  • 5 Pauline Robinson 29th Nov 2021

    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.

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    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

  • 5 Gillian Brown 9th Nov 2021

    This is our third time using the Ruddington branch as we have always been impressed with the service we have recieved. Teresa is marvellous and will go above and beyond to get things right for you. At a very difficult time they make everything run smoothly without the pressure. We have always felt the respect they give to our departed loved ones who are treated in a kind and gentle manner and which is greatly appreciated by the grieving family. I really cannot find fault with this branch or anyone that works there. A big thank you to all of them.

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this long review for me. I was glad that you asked me to once again take care of you and I thought it was lovely to see Mum's dog at the service. Thank you, Teresa.
  • 5 Dean Smith 9th Nov 2021

  • 5 Valerine Hines 6th Oct 2021

    The ceremony was very thoughtful and well-organised. We really appreciated the kindness and professionalism of the staff. Particular thanks must go to Teresa, Donna, Malcolm and NIgel - an excellent team.

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    I am grateful to you for taking the time to write these kind words and am glad that you were pleased with all we did for you. I am only sorry that i was no able to be there for you on the day itself, but know you were in very capable hands with Nigel looking after you. Thank you, Donna.
  • 5 Janet Newton 25th Sep 2021

    The funeral was very easily arranged and although there wasn’t much time we never felt rushed. Edward had everything in hand and we were all very pleased with the funeral. 
    A very good service, thank you.

    A.W. Lymn, Ruddington Team replied
    Janet, many thanks for taking the time to leave a positive review about Fred’s service. I, and the whole team are pleased you felt the service was fitting for a well-loved, and respected man who was clearly an important part of the village community. Once again, thank you. Edward.
  • 5 Maria Wilson 22nd Sep 2021

    Very professional. Despite a vehicle breakdown the situation was handled very quickly and a hand-delivered note of apology and refund was waiting for us at home without the need of any hassle or embarrassment. There was nothing we could do about it so we chose to see the funny side, as life indeed is very short to worry about things we simply can’t change. Would definitely recommend and use them again. 

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your understanding. Teresa, Edward and I were all devastated at the vintage Rolls-Royce 'failing to proceed' but sincerely touched by your understanding at the situation. We understand you could have felt very differently, and thank you for reaction to the situation, and our response to it.
  • 5 Carol Goddard 14th Sep 2021

    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. 

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    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.
