I couldn’t have asked for my husbands funeral to go any better, thank you for you very professional and caring service at this very difficult time

John Michael Stone 10th Sep 2019

Lymns have carried out 3 funerals for my family, I can only say they have been excellent in every way, a very big thanks to Sarah from West Bridgford office, Sarah is sympathetic yet super efficient at a time when we most need it. I can’t recommend her highly enough. John Stone

Jeanette Reuben 24th Aug 2019

We were very pleased with my Father’s funeral. Lymn’s were very helpful, provided good advice and were responsive to our requests. On the day, attention to detail was clearly evident & Julia did an excellent job of leading the process right from its beginnings from Lymn’s premises through to the end of the service at the crematorium. All staff were courteous and respectful. We felt our Father was in safe hands.

    Sarah and Andrew have been brilliant - at a time that is so difficult, they make the process as easy as possible, treating you with genuine care - taking time to really listen and get to know you and the loved one you’ve lost. The services they offer cover everything you could ask for, with options to suit a wide range of preferences and budgets. I cannot express how much their combined experience and support has made a difference to us and would certainly recommend them to other families who are looking for the right people to take the best care of them and their loved one. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are really grateful to you for taking the time to leave such a kind and detailed review. It is obvious that both Sarah and Andrew helped you greatly during this difficult time with their genuine care and compassion. Thank you.

  • 5 Kathleen Spinks 22nd Mar 2019

    we were dealt with care and compassion and a professional manner by all staff involved at a very sad and stressful time, having never had to arrange a funeral before on my own I felt myself and our sons were helped along the way thanks to all concerned

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Sarah and Andrew's support made the difficult occasion of having to arrange a funeral a little easier for you and that their care and compassion helped you and your sons at this stressful time. Thank you.
  • 2 Philip Ambrose 22nd Mar 2019

    The service was very easy to organise and mostly stress-free. What went badly was the burial. No-one had thought about the logistics of getting a wheelchair across a grave yard and therefore with great difficulty and due to soft ground it was difficult to get my mum to the grave and even then we could not stand with the rest of the family. Overall in that sense there was poor planning.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    As discussed in our email exchange, I am sorry that you felt this one aspect of the service was not as you would have wished, but to reiterate as the grave was selected by yourselves and the Churchyard, and we were not asked to provide any sort of temporary flooring over the grass, we did not consider this as something that was required. I do hope that everything else was completed to your family's satisfaction, and I am sorry that this one issue has caused you to rate our entire service as two stars out of a possible five.
  • 5 Thomas Edwards 15th Mar 2019

    I (along with my daughter Nathalie) would like to thank everyone that was involved at A W Lymn in organising the funeral preparations for my beloved wife Madeleine Edwards. The support and advice you provided at such an emotionally distressing time was a real comfort. You were there to answer any queries. The day of the actual funeral was done respectfully. The cars arrived on time, the seating of the guests was all done for us so we didn't have to concern ourselves with any of those details. The Celebrant that Lymn's (Rebecca White) was an excellent choice for us. The person I dealt with was Andrew Brown so a big thank you to you Andrew for all your help. Kind Regards Thomas Edwards

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Andrew's support and advice provided real comfort to you and your Daughter during this emotional and distressing time. We are also glad that the service offered by our team on the day meant all the little details were taken care of for you. Thank you for taking the time to leave this kind review.
