  • 5 Roger Adkin 24th Jan 2020

    We had excellent service both before and during the day of the funeral. They couldn't do enough for us to make sure everything was arranged and totally worry free for us all. On the day of the funeral everything ran extremely smoothly and we would like to make a special mention to Julie for how professional and caring she was to us all.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 5 Susan Drew 19th Jan 2020

    The only thing I could comment on is that the pall bearers were different heights which made it look a little awkward. Other than that everything was perfect and could not have gone any better.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are grateful to you for taking the time to leave this positive review and are glad that most parts of the service we provided were perfect. We are sometimes unable to coordinate a team of pall bearers of the same height and we are sorry that on this occasion it resulted in things looking a little awkward, but we thank you for bringing this to our attention and we will try our best to prevent this happening to other families in the future.
  • 4 John Parkes 6th Jan 2020

    All round a very professional job. We were a bit disappointed that there was a cost to visit my father prior to the funeral, but as it turned out my sisters and mother didn't want to visit in the end. Please pass the families thanks to Tracey and especially Richard Marshall for the excellent eulogy he performed at the service.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your positive review and in particularly your kind words about the service provided by Tracey and Richard. We are sorry that you felt a little disappointed about the additional amount we charge to visit a loved one before the funeral, but our reason for this is that we do not want families to pay for services that they do not require so rather than pricing our funerals as packages we only charge for each element that is selected and do not charge for any that are not required. I hope this helps to clarify the matter and thank you for giving us the opportunity to explain.

    All the staff have been very attentive, and professional at all times. Everything they did was checked by us before they did it so we knew what was happening, what would be said and how things would work on the day. Tracey really looked after us and Terry and Richard gave a good service which everyone has said they really enjoyed. Julia did an amazing job on the day of directing and coordinating the funeral.

  • 5 Gail Hind 4th Sep 2019

    We had excellent service from A W Lymn for our mums funeral, everything went smoothly from beginning to end. All of the staff we dealt with were compassionate and caring and nothing was too much trouble. We had used A W Lymn for our fathers funeral 15 years ago so they were the obvious choice for mum.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Gail for this lovely review. We are glad you felt that nothing was too much trouble as we always try our best to make sure this is the case. You should also thank yourself for giving your mother the send-off she deserved. Tina.

  • 5 Jane Phillips 7th Aug 2019

    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

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind and detailed review. We are glad that every member of staff you dealt with left you feeling like the arrangements were in safe hand. Thank you also for sharing the tip with regards to the flowers as it is the small touches such as these which can make all the difference at the time of the service.
  • 5 Wendy Perrie 5th Aug 2019

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
