  • 4 Maura Dziuba 4th May 2021

    All due care and respect were provided. We were very pleased with the care and attention given to my deceased mother and especially the time we were allowed after the funeral to speak with the people attending, given the covid restrictions at the time.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased to see that you were satisfied with all that Courtney and Jane did to help you and your family though this sad time, but are sorry that the current COVID restrictions meant that you were unable to have all the element of the service that you would have ideally wanted for your Mother.

  • 5 Adrian Ancliffe 24th Mar 2021

    Mum had a pre paid funeral plan, so a simple phone call from the nursing home where she passed away to the local West Bridgford branch of A.W.Lymn started the process. The whole thing was dealt with in a highly professional manner. Special praise go to Courtney, the funeral arranger and Richard, the funeral Celebrant, both of whom were very thorough and caring. The funeral itself could not have been better, a perfect send off. Beautifully presented cars arrived on time with Paul, our driver, doing an excellent job in difficult circumstances. Everything about the service, the Order of Service booklets, the poems and delivery by Richard was excellent. The whole thing was beautifully coordinated by Jackie, our Funeral Director on the day, who looked after everything in a very professional and sympathetic way. Everyone who was allowed to attend agreed that it was a lovely, fitting funeral for my Mum. Thank you to all concerned. Adrian Ancliffe

    A.W. Lymn, West Bridgford Team replied
    Adrian, it was a privilege to take care of you and the rest of the funeral at the time of your Mum's funeral. The service was a fitting tribute to her and she clearly lived a long, full and fascinating life. Richard and Courtney also join me in thanking you for your kind words. Take care. Jackie.
  • 5 David Walton 21st Mar 2021

    Thank you for the sensitive way you handled our father’s  funeral  It felt vey personal despite the difficult times  David Walton

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that despite the difficult circumstances you were treated with sensitivity throughout and received a personal service. Thank you.
  • 4 Frank Mitchell 20th Mar 2021

    The service was in general very professional. However I think the lead person could have been more proactive in the detail organization over the phone. Answers were always forthcoming but only as a result of specific enquiries, which at stressful times such as bereavement are not always obvious to the client. I understand the restrictions imposed by the Covid virus, which makes the telephone contact vitally important to ensure things are not missed or overlooked. I make these observation in a constructive way, not as a complaint

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Mr Mitchell, I was glad that I was able to personally oversee this funeral for you given our mutual friend and would thank you for this kind and balanced review. The current pandemic has made funeral arrangements very different to what we are used to and it is certainly more difficult to discuss all the elements of the service in a telephone call rather than during a face to face arrangement conversation. We have however taken your comments on board and will ensure that we learn from them. Thank you again, Jackie Lymn Rose.
  • 1 Anita Thompson 16th Mar 2021

    The way that we were dealt with from the beginning up until the actual funeral was extremely poor. There was a total lack of communication from the staff in the West Bridgford office. I cannot go into detail as it is too painful to discuss. I have registered an official complaint.

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Mrs. Thompson. Thank you for getting in touch and sharing your concerns with me about communication between the West Bridgford Office and yourself. I am grateful for the time you have spent going through the detail, and very pleased to hear you describe the funeral on the day as being perfect. Thank you.
  • 5 Margaret Belcher 8th Mar 2021

    Very helpful

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that you were pleased with all that we did to support you, thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?
