  • 5 Lindsay Stevens 21st Apr 2020

    We found the staff at AW Lymn to be professional and helpful both prior to and during Mum's funeral ceremony. Andrew, Jane and colleagues were courteous, good humoured and respectful providing the appropriate information and details in a timely way. Mum's casket was absolutely beautiful and the flower arrangement on top was a kind and lovely touch. Thank you to everyone for making Mum's funeral poignant and tasteful. Given the difficult circumstances and restrictions in place owing to Corona virus, my family and I are grateful for the effort put in to help make the ceremony a memorable one nonetheless. I would highly recommend AW Lymn to anyone looking for a bespoke approach with those extra little touches that make all the difference on the day.
