    The service received was excellent at this time of heartache. I was treated with kindness and compassion with nothing being too much trouble.
    I was kept informed of the progress all the way to the funeral.
    On the day everything went like clockwork and nothing had not been accounted for.
    At such an emotional time it was a relief to be guided through the ceremony from start to finish.
    I cannot thank them enough.

    Teresa at Lymn's helped us through a very difficult time, planning our daughter's funeral. She had a practical yet compassionate approach, which helped us to plan everything exactly how we wanted it. If we had any questions or queries, Teresa was always easy to get in touch with, and it really helped to have this continuity, so that we didn't have to keep going through things again with different people. On the day of the funeral, everything went perfectly, and Teresa was there to support us on this very difficult day.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I was honoured to be entrusted with arranging Baby Alice's funeral for you and I am truly grateful for the kind words that you have written about me and the support that I gave. I am always available should you need someone to speak with. Thank you. Teresa.
