You can also schedule an appointment to be seen after hours if it is more convenient for you. To do so, please call the telephone number, which is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

  • 5 Gillian Chesney-Green 6th Nov 2018

    The care and consideration afforded me and the family was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and emailed questions and queries were answered swiftly... and gentle reminders were sent if there was something I'd forgotten. I never felt patronized and always felt genuinely supported by Teresa. Little details that showed a complete respect for my deceased husband included asking for his underwear along with his clothes, to preserve his dignity. Very thoughtful;very touching. At all times she and the team were very professional and respectful.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the team to leave this wonderful and detailed review. We are pleased that professionalism and respect afforded by Teresa to both your family and your late husband made you feel genuinely supported during this difficult time. Thank you.

  • 5 Arthur Webster 25th Sep 2018

    Dear Nigel,
    Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the most kind and efficient way in which your team carried out my wife's funeral arrangements.  Although very sad for me I was very uplifted by the tremendous support I received during the 'Thanksgiving Service'.
    Please pass on my gratitude to Teresa and the team.
    God bless you all.
    Arthur Webster. 

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Arthur, thank you for your kind comments about our team, and Teresa and I in particular, they are much appreciated. I did find it an honour to be involved in the funeral of “Miss Webster” my former school mistress from over half a century ago (It was hard to believe). It was an accolade to all she had done in her life to see the church full for the service of thanksgiving for her life and there was a lovely warm family feeling among all those in attendance. Nigel
  • 5 Marie Soar 16th Sep 2018

    This was the third family funeral that Lymns have organised for me. All of their staff are highly professional, courteous and caring. I wouldn’t have considered using anyone else at such a sad time, when it’s so important that all the arrangements go perfectly and I knew I could trust them implicitly to ensure everything went smoothly. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are sorry that it has been necessary for you to require our services for a third time but we thank you for your very kind comments and for entrusting us with this important occasion. Jackie is away at the moment but has asked me to pass on that she was privileged to have been involved and that she thought the attendance was wonderful on the day.
  • 4 David Fuller 10th Sep 2018

    Everyone we spoke to was polite, understanding and efficient we would definitely recommend Lymns to our friends.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this positive review and your kind words about the polite, understanding and efficient service provided by the team at Ruddington. We have noted your 4* rating and if there is anything further you feel we could have done then we would appreciate this feedback. Thank you.
  • 5 Joan fenwick 3rd Sep 2018
