Outstanding service by Lymms. Initial visit to Lesley at Long Eaton (before my Uncle had passed) made me feel that we were in safe hands.  Later visit by Jane to our home to run through everything with lots of advice and guidance. We then transferred all the arrangements to Tracy at Stapleford to “fine tune” everything.  A really handy tip by Tracey to take the Coffin Flowers to the Wake, then when everyone left they took small sprays/bouquets with them. A wonderful thought which went down so well with all the Guests.  The British Legion was involved and we also had a Piper and Vintage Singer - Lymms were able to able to accommodate and work with everything we asked for. I cannot fault the service we received in every aspect. Thank you to the whole Team at Lynms.  Jane Phillips

  • 5 Jane Bland 29th Jan 2019

    They have been amazing through out at such a sad time for our family. Mathew was so helpful when I first called and guided us every step of the way. Tracey at Stapleford is the most amazing lady, compassionate throughout and treated grandma with respect, she made sure she looked beautiful whilst in the chapel of rest for us. We can’t thank her enough for everything she did. Nick Sharpe who led our service of Celebration also did with such compassion and took into account all of our concerns to make sure it was perfect. Thank you so much 😊 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was my pleasure to be given the opportunity to look after you and your family and I am so glad you felt happy with the care I’d given both to Lydia and yourselves as a family. I will also forward your kind words to Nick so he can see how much you appreciated his help. Thank you, Tracey.

  • 5 Gill Turton 11th Oct 2018

    I cannot adequately express my gratitude to the Stapleford branch of A W Lymn following the sudden, tragic death of our son. From the moment of our first visit - without appointment - we were treated with nothing but kindness and understanding.  They all went out of their way to help us through the most painful time of our lives. Our thanks go to Natalie, Julie and Deanna and, in particular Tracey who went over and well above the call of duty with her help, not only to my husband and me but also to our granddaughter and daughter.  We are so grateful for this and for her patience and empathy before and after the funeral. Thank you so much.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your wonderful review and 5* rating. We are pleased that the team at Stapleford and Tracey in particular showed kindness, patience and empathy to you and the rest of your family and offered great support to you all during this difficult time. Thank you.

    Lymns - excellent. Celebrant - not so good, stumbled over a few words and i had to write her whole script for her

    All the arrangements for the funeral were handled in a very professional manner. The funeral from our house to Bramcote Crematorium was handled with great dignity as was the interment of ashes at Beeston Cemetery. We couldn't have asked for better service and our thanks go to Tracey Sweeting-Rowe who arranged the funeral for us.

Outstanding service by Lymms. Initial visit to Lesley at Long Eaton (before my Uncle had passed) made me feel that we were in safe hands.  Later visit by Jane to our home to run through everything with lots of advice and guidance. We then transferred all the arrangements to Tracy at Stapleford to “fine tune” everything.  A really handy tip by Tracey to take the Coffin Flowers to the Wake, then when everyone left they took small sprays/bouquets with them. A wonderful thought which went down so well with all the Guests.  The British Legion was involved and we also had a Piper and Vintage Singer - Lymms were able to able to accommodate and work with everything we asked for. I cannot fault the service we received in every aspect. Thank you to the whole Team at Lynms.  Jane Phillips
