All ran very well, only comment would be that when they came to the house to take details, he was very stern and serious, felt a little uncomfortable 

Susan Morris 29th Apr 2024

Samantha in the West Bridgford office was very helpful, polite and sympathetic during the arranging of my mother's funeral.  Also Andrew and Edward were very professional throughout the whole time. Thank you for making a difficult day run smoothly. Well done Lymns. 

Angela Barnard 28th Apr 2024

Every aspect of the funeral for our Mum was perfectly carried out by Lymns.  Their attention to detail, helpful suggestions and efficiency made what was an emotionally difficult time, much easier.  Thanks to all the team at Lymns, but special gratitude to Andrew and Brendan the celebrant.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this generally positive feedback on the service provided by our team at West Bridgford. I am however sorry to hear that you found the arranger stern and serious. On each occasion the funeral arranger needs to make an assessment on how best to interact with a family, and I am sorry that on this occasion his behaviour did not make you feel at ease during this difficult time. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. Chloe Lymn Rose

    Lymns provided a  SUPERB service for my fathers funeral. From our first meeting with Samantha to our final arrangements with Edward.  
    Their ability to remain professional and efficient, yet demonstrate warmth, dignity and compassion throughout  such an upsetting and personal time, is outstanding! 

    This was our third family funeral with Edward at Lymns and we cannot recommend them highly enough.  

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Sandra and family, again sincere thanks for such a glowing review of the service. I thought the tribute was marvellous and David should be extremely proud of how it was delivered. For me it was an honour to serve your family again at a difficult time and we are grateful that everything was delivered to the standard you expected from us. Very best wishes to you all. Edward.

  • 5 Angela Ellis 18th Jan 2024

    My family and I can confidently recommend using Lymn, West Bridgford branch, for the funeral of your loved ones. The service and advice was professional and everything absolutely ran to perfection on the day. We were not rushed at all in the early stages of organising the funeral itself. They outsourced a lady celebrant who was excellent in every way - Suzanne Wright.

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Thank you Angela for leaving such a positive review. We are so pleased that you placed your trust in us to provide a service that was fitting, and that you would be happy to recommend us to anyone in similar circumstances.
    The team at West Bridgford.

We appreciate the advice and support given to us by Santanna, Andrew, Edward and his team of co-workers. Our particular thanks go to Colum O'Shea, whose empathic and calm delivery on the day was of great comfort.

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Thank you for this lovely feedback on all the team. I thought you made splendid use of the technology available at the crematorium and all your friends and family spoke beautifully during the tribute. Thank you for asking me to be a part of this. Colum.
  • 5 Richard Stuart 13th Jan 2024

    Everything on the day exceeded expectations.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Richard, thank you for your kind words. I was pleased to be told by you on Tuesday that our team at West Bridgford had looked after you and your sister and given every assistance to progress the funeral arrangements whilst you were both out of the UK. The service in memory of your mother was a lovely balance of family reminiscences coupled with a degree of formality. It was also good to see you for the first time in over 50 years. Thank you. Nigel
