This is the second time in just over a year I've used Lymn's funeral service. Their service cannot be faulted, they made what has been a very difficult time much easier to bear with their compassion, kindness, efficiency and attention to detail. Both my parents had the send offs they deserved. Thank you.

Excellent service from all the team

From my very first call I have received impeccable service from A.W.Lymn. Karen has a very gentle , caring nature and at all stages of the procedure has kept me informed of what was happening and if I didn't understand anything she took the time and patience to explain until I did. I found all their staff to be very professional and courteous and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Kathleen Marston

    I am glad that despite the current restrictions I was still able to make Mum's funeral as similar as possible to your step-father's and I was once again honoured that you asked me to take care of you and your family during this sad time. Thank you, Karen.

    Thank you Kathleen for taking the time to leave this lovely review as I know this was a very difficult time for you with Geoff sadly passing away very quickly and only a few days after your wedding. I am glad I was able to give you the time you wanted with no pressure and a listening ear. It was lovely to meet you on the day chapel was arranged, knowing that everything was as you wanted for Geoff. Thank you, Karen.

  • 5 Christine Alexander 1st May 2020

    My Mums funeral was held right in the middle of the peak of the Covid-19 crisis. It was a really difficult time and the funeral was so restricted....most friends and family were not able to attend due to them being over 70 years old. Karen and her team at Lymns in Sutton in Ashfield were truly extraordinary. Karen was attentive, thoughtful and really very clever in helping me to find innovative ways of 'marking' Mums death in ways that I would never have thought of. I really cannot praise her enough for the help, guidance and attentive kindness during the whole process..... simply extraordinary.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are really grateful to you for taking the time to leave this wonderful review, particularly in regard to the innovative ways Karen ensured your Mum's service was a fitting tribute to her. Thank you also for the lovely letter you sent to Karen, she really did appreciate this.

  • 5 Janine Wortley 31st Mar 2020

    Excellent from start to finish and especially under current difficult circumstances. Karen at Sutton office was efficient, sympathetic and very helpful. Keeping us informed at all times. Would highly recommend. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Janine for taking the time to leave a lovely message, at not only a time of your loss but as you explained difficult circumstances also, where services had sadly been withdrawn, it was imperative to me that I kept you informed of the updates on guidance we were receiving and I thank you and your family for understanding. Karen.
  • 5 Margaret Stone 19th Jan 2020

    From the moment I walked through the door for the first time Karen has been absolutely lovely and really helpful. She kept me upto date about what was happening all the way through the process. Was so patient with me when I changed my mind about things. Then on the day of the funeral Andy was lovely and helped us through the day. As a family we cannot thank them enough!

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am so pleased I was able to guide, help and arrange everything you wanted - and am glad that my frequent phone calls so you could come in to check things helped. Thank you, Karen.

  • 5 Lesley Chapple 28th Sep 2019

    The service provided by Karen in your Sutton in Ashfield branch was exceptional, Karen couldn’t have been more professional, kind and understanding in all aspects related to Ruby’s funeral . On the day of the funeral everything was carried out to perfection.  The only thing we were slightly disappointed with was the wreath which was provided in with our funeral package, the quality left a little bit to be desired .  Thank you all for your kindness .

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely review, particularly in regard to the care, kindness and understanding shown to you by Karen during this sad time. We are glad that everything was carried out to perfection on the day but are sorry that you felt disappointed with the quality of the flowers supplied as our floristry department is generally so highly rated. We hope that the donation we have made to Dementia UK in memory of Ruby suitably marks our regret regarding this. Thank you.

  • 5 Gill Phillips 22nd Mar 2019

    Excellent service from initial contact right through to the actual funeral. Communication was superb and at no time did we feel we were being hurried or asking silly questions. Advice was freely given without any pressure and we never felt that we were being steered to pick more expensive options. Would wholeheartedly recommend A W Lymn in Sutton in Ashfield for a respectful, professional service for your family.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words and recommendation. We are glad that Karen gave good advice and helped you create the service that you wanted for your Aunt without any pressure to select options that were not for you. Thank you.
  • 5 Trevor Gill 13th Feb 2019

    They could not have done better than they did this is probably the wrong word to use but it was a perfect service from start to finish, and that has been told to me by many of our large family that live locally as well as by many friends. I thank Karen Horton the Sutton Branch Manager, and Andy and his team on the day as well as Andy's visit to me in the early stages of planning the funeral. Excellent all round and 10 Stars out five is the only way I can put it.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this wonderful review, both Karen and Andy are delighted to read the kind words you have written about the service they provided and the comments you have received since from both family and friends.
  • 5 Lynne Dennis 9th Feb 2019

    The service was excellent and we would highly recommend. From the first meeting with Karen at the Sutton in Ashfield branch, who treated us with such kindness and gave all the advice we needed, to the staff on the day who were so thoughtful and professional. Thank you for giving my sister the dignified send-off she so deserved. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Lynne for taking the time to leave this kind lovely message. I am so pleased everything was arranged to your family's wishes and we were able to create a dignified send-off for your sister. I also thank you for your recommendation. Karen.

  • 5 Chris Sumpter 27th Jan 2019

    Thank you very much for the professional funeral service you provided for mum. Right from the beginning we found you to be caring, supportive and professional. Nothing was too much for you. You took the time to listen to family wishes and took time to look after mum. When times are difficult it is the kindness of people that help us to get through a very difficult time.  Thank you, you really made a difference.   Chris and Mel X 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I understand from Karen that you had to wait some time for Mum's funeral due to the sad circumstances, but we are glad that throughout this time Karen treated you with care and kindness. Thank you.
