  • 5 sheila Maslen 21st Jun 2022

    We recently had a double funeral for my mum and dad who died three weeks apart. All the staff at Lymns were brilliant . We first spoke with a member of the team three years ago to arrange a pre- payed plan.
    The day was a sad time, but the staff at Lymns guided us through and made it a calm and relaxing day, with no dramas.
    All the team were were very professional and would highly recommend Lymns to others.
    Thankyou.

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Thank you for taking time to leave such a positive review, we are glad we were able to assist and make the day as calm as possible. The pre-arranged plans reflected their individuality, especially the chosen coffins and it was a fitting end to be able to lay them to rest side by side in such lovely surroundings at the natural burial ground. Thank you again, Andrew.
  • 5 Tracey Coleman 20th Jun 2022

    Nothing was too much trouble.  Andrew was fantastic and incredibly helpful.  Highly recommended 

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and such kind words, it was a pleasure to assist especially as we had helped with Mrs Coleman previously. Andrew
  • 5 Philip Lovett 19th Jun 2022

    Excellent service, managed by an empathetic and knowledgeable team. I had absolute confidence that the team knew what they were doing and when and had the best interests of our family at the heart of everything they did. The team at the funeral directed things in a professional manner and everything felt under control at all times which is reassuring for such an important occasion. 

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Philip, thank you for writing in such detail about Andrew and the team who were involved in Mum's Service. I am sorry that I could not have been with you on the day, having known you, your Dad and your Mum for some time, but I am really pleased that my colleagues represented our family firm in the right way, and that the Service went in the way you would have hoped. Thank you.

  • 5 Mike Waplington 4th Jun 2022

    My sister and I dealt with the West Bridgford office following our mum's death. Their attention to and understanding of our needs was excellent and nothing was any trouble for them with Santana giving a very personal service to us.

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    It was a pleasure being there to help guide you through the arrangements for mum and I am pleased that everything was executed excellently. All the best Santanna.
  • 5 Charlotte May 8th May 2022

    I can’t adequately express how amazing Lymn were - from beginning to end - in providing vouchers for, planning and executing my late father’s funeral. They went over and above in every aspect, even agreeing to arrange flowers to our own brief rather than insisting on the designs in their brochure, I have no hesitation in recommending them. They made a terribly sad, stressful, experience as simple and calm as it could possibly have been. Thank you! 

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Thank you Charlotte for taking the time to leave such a positive review, it was a pleasure to help provide a suitable send off for your father, I know the florist enjoyed working with you to creating something unique and there were lots of comments on how good they looked. Andrew
  • 5 Victoria Spencer 2nd May 2022

    The team were brilliant supportive and respectful.  They took care of everything. The service and burial were beautiful. They did my Dad proud. 

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Victoria, thank you for your kind words. It is our pleasure being able to help you through such a difficult time and to turn the arrangements into something beautiful. Take care- Santanna.
  • 4 Ian Turner 30th Apr 2022

    Handled with great sensitivity and compassion. Very expensive but I have nothing to compare with. Only thing that is stopping me giving excellent were some admin errors which caused a few unnecessary journeys.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this balanced and generally positive review. I am sorry that there was some confusion regarding a piece of paperwork and that this impacted upon your family, rest assured I have discussed this internally with the team at the office to understand better what happened, but please do accept our apologies for this. Thank you.
  • 5 Fiona Lewis 30th Apr 2022

    At a very sad time , Lymns we’re amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. We were helped through every stage with understanding and compassion.
    Anja , the celebrant was also just perfect.
    Thankyou all so much

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Thank you Fiona for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are pleased to hear that all of the arrangements went to plan and I feel privileged to have been able to see you through every step of the way. All the best- Santanna.
  • 5 Patricia Annesley 21st Apr 2022

    Sadly, another reason to use the services of Lymn's recently and once again the attention to detail was outstanding. Santanna in the West Bridgford office was especially helpful. My mother's funeral went without a hitch, so thank you.

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Thank you Trish for these kind words we really do appreciate it. I am so pleased that your mother, Marguerite, had a perfect tribute and that we were able to support you through this sad time. All the best – Santanna.
  • 5 Gary Atkin 18th Apr 2022

    The second funeral I have had to arrange unfortunately in the last four years and Lymns have been fantastic. Made everything simple and were so understanding. The staff at West Bridgford I would recommend to anyone in this difficult time. 

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Thank you Gary for taking the time to leave these lovely words I am pleased that we were able to assist you in creating a fitting tribute for your mother. All the best- Santanna.
  • 5 Stephen Attewell 12th Apr 2022

    My little princess was 12 years old and it was one of the hardest days of my life.  Santanna at Lymns did an amazing job and is a credit to the industry, the funeral Director Matthew was fantastic, the attention to detail, colourful attire, the balloons on the cars and so one were just so much appreciated. Matthew was kind, considerate and gentle  on the day with some very kind words and lovely support. Wayne our driver was also a credit to Lymns he was polite and professional but he too was genuinely a nice gent who really cared about his job and providing the mourners with a good service. I know my little girl would have approved and really liked Matthews Tie too :)

    Thank you to everyone at Lymns from the bottom of my heart bless you all. 

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Stephen. Santanna, Wayne and I cannot thank you enough for expressing what you have in this review. Looking after someone like Freja is in many ways the worst part of our job, young people should not need the service we provide. Having said that, you and the family put together a wonderful tribute to a special girl, and we only played a small part in ensuring the day ran smoothly. Thanks again, I will ensure all the team see your comments.
  • 5 Julia Squires 4th Apr 2022

  • 5 Richard Dearnley 13th Mar 2022

    Five stars from us. Both Edward and Santanna have helped and supported us through the worst time of our lives, in arranging all aspects of the funeral for our son, Adam, who tragically passed away at 26 years of age.
    Santanna set up a Justgiving page for us to raise funds to provide defibrillators in memory of Adam.
    Everything on the day went ahead as planned - nothing was too much trouble.
    Friendly and professional service throughout this difficult time.
    With thanks,
    Richard and Tricia.

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    We warmly thank you for your kind words, and that you have taken the time to share them. We were all very saddened by Adam’s sudden passing. Santanna and I, and the whole team were pleased to be able to offer you support and guidance through an extremely distressing time. From all of us here, we wish you both, Jack and everybody associated with Adam well moving forward. Thank you. Edward.
