  • 5 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. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words. We are glad that Julia’s attention to detail and the support and advice given by the rest of her team made this difficult time a little easier and made you confident that your Father was in safe hands.

  • 5 Ruth Kemp 10th Aug 2019

    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.
