Karen from A.W. Lymn in Sutton-in-Ashfield was incredibly helpful and respectful through the process, and the service provided was seamless from beginning to end. Chris

Louise Law 5th Jul 2022

We were dealt with compassionately and  efficiently throughout , no detail was left unchecked and  our wishes followed to the letter  This enabled us to celebrate Dads life with a day that was organised and executed to perfection We cannot thank Karen, Steve and  the team enough 

Gillian Brewin 28th Jun 2022

I can’t thank the staff of AW Lymn especially Karen Horton for all the help and support they gave me arranging the funeral for my Husband. I would not hesitate recommending them to friends.

    MICHAEL PARSONS

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    I'm so pleased all the arrangements we discussed for Jeanne went just as you wanted. Certainly, it was very clear to me that Jeanne was a special lady and I think the service reflected that. She holds a special place not only in your and James’ hearts but her family and friends also. Thank you, Karen.
  • 5 Nick Elgar 25th Apr 2022

    Karen, Jonathan and the rest of the team from Lymns at Sutton were excellent.  The arrangements for the funeral were made professionally, with empathy and understanding.  The general advice offered helped to begin the process of dealing with the death of my wife was invaluable.  The funeral itself went perfectly with exactly the right amount of guidance and support being offered.

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review that was awaiting my return from holiday. It was my pleasure to support you and your family through this sad time and I am pleased everything went exactly as we planned on the day. Thank you, Karen.
  • 5 Sharron Brown 13th Feb 2022

    Very happy xx

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you Sharron for taking the time to leave this positive review and for calling into the office to thank me in person too. I am glad that the celebrant, Chris Ibbs, got the service "spot on" for you. Karen.
  • 5 Malcolm Price 4th Dec 2021

    5 Stars are not enough. Karen could not have done more to help us through this very sad and difficult time, she went above and beyond. Every challenge I put to her, she came through with flying colours. She alone became a part of our grieving family . Anja, our Celebrant was more than Excellent. She made us cry and she made us laugh as she took us through the ''Celebration of my Dear wife Pat's Life'' No, 10 Stars is nearer the mark . My Family and I would like to say Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to your team for everything you have done for us. Kindest regards, Malcolm Price.

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for leaving this review at this difficult time. I’m so pleased we gave everything required (and beyond) for the arrangements of Pat, a much loved Wife and Mum who is dearly going to be missed. I can’t take all the credit as we worked as a team with Becky from Rainworth, who helped with the visual tribute, David while I was annual leave and of course Mansfield Crematorium and Obitus. I saw Anja 3 days after service – this is also a service that she was honoured to officiate and will remember for a long time – in times of sadness she is so pleased she met and now knows you, Paul and Karen. Thank you again, Karen.
  • 5 Marie Dixon 10th Nov 2021

    A professional and compassionate service which helped us greatly through this very  difficult time. 

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    I would like to thank you Marie for taking the time to leave this kind review. Steve was a very well respected policeman, friend and more importantly a dad and Husband and I am pleased the arrangements made, funeral service and knowing where I am if you ever need me are a comfort. Karen.
  • 5 Fiona Stirton 27th Oct 2021

    A W Lymn (Sutton) provided an excellent, kind, conscientious service, supporting us all the way and made the process of funeral planning etc as easy as possible. At such a sad, difficult time it really helped to have such dedicated professionals by our sides. Special thanks to Karen Horton at the Sutton office for keeping us on track throughout and for being our point of contact, listener, provider of tissues, hot drinks and everything else in between.

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    From the bottom of my heart I thank you Fiona and your family for taking the time to thank us for our support and guidance. I am so pleased everything that was arranged was a fitting tribute to Mandy, she clearly was a much loved lady by all that knew her. Karen.
  • 4 Francis Newenham 12th Oct 2021

    Generally the service from Lymm’s has been excellent. The reason for not giving the top grade is that I feel Lymm’ s should have saved me from getting upset by the attempt by Sandiacre parish council to charge an extra £150 for the hiring of a skip to remove excess soil when their  rules ( supplied by you) and signed by me when booking the burial plot, clearly state that excess soil would remain on site.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Mr Newenham, Initially I would thank you for your kind comments and overall appraisal that the services provided by our family company and Karen were excellent. I am grateful you have raised the issued of Sandiacre Parish Council and am sorry that this caused concern for a few days.

    This has allowed us to rectify matters with them and to point out that their published rules did not allow for the £150.00 additional charge they intended to make that has not now been paid. Thank you for your kind understanding.
  • 5 Jane Parke 8th May 2021

    Excellent professional and caring from our first contact and at all times. Karen at the Sutton In Ashfield office was so attentive and helpful.
    Thank you

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you Mrs Parke for taking the time to leave such a lovely review at this difficult time. I am so pleased that all the arrangements that were made went as expected. I have passed a message to the Funeral Director & Celebrant explaining how pleased you were with the service as promised and more importantly that your late father in law had a ride in a Rolls Royce! Now the funeral has taken place, as I mentioned before, you know where I am if I can help with anything in the future. Karen.
  • 5 Lesley Bignell 4th May 2021

    Kindness and compassion at a very difficult time. Kept me informed all the way. Professional and respectful. Quality of service, from the uniforms to the cars. Thank you.

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you Mrs Bignell for taking the time to leave such lovely words at what was such a difficult time for you, I am truly grateful. Karen.
  • 5 Gweneth Hall 13th Mar 2021

    Everything from beginning to end was conducted in a sympathetic but highly organised way. This meant that the day was much less stressful. I would highly recommend their services.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you, Mrs Hall, for taking the time to leave such a kind review at a difficult time, and especially for your kind words on the bespoke Order of Service and the Floral Tributes. I have also passed your personal “thank you” to the team. Karen.
  • 5 Christopher Stammers 10th Mar 2021

    The whole process of arranging a funeral was made much easier by Lymns at Sutton. Karen was ever helpful and sympathetic through the whole process and communicated with us at each step of the way and she certainly went the extra mile. Everyone at Lymns were exceptionally professional and the comprehensive brochure was a great help when communicating with distant relatives. We felt that the help given lifted a lot of the weight from us at such a sad time. I would recommend using their services to anyone.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I would like to pass on my heartfelt thank you to you and your family for this wonderful review. I’m pleased I was able to help you at this very difficult time so you could concentrate on other matters and not have to worry about any of the arrangements. Please remember I am always here if there is anything else I can do to help you. Thank you again, Karen.
  • 5 Nigel Patrick Walters 2nd Mar 2021

    Could not have wished for any thing better to all the staff at A W Lymn for looking after me and my wife gena thank you so much

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Mr Walters, without a doubt Gena would have approved of what you arranged for her and it was lovely that her friends, who were able to attend the service, also commented how “perfect” everything was. The sun even shone for you! Thank you, Karen.
  • 5 Paula Brocklehurst 1st Mar 2021

    The service we received from Lymns was of a very high standard and professional at all times.

    Karen was lovely in helping us arrange everything and patient. She was friendly, understanding and caring throughout the whole process. On the day of the funeral everything was exactly as we had wanted.

    Adam Humphries whom held the service at the crematorium gave a thoughtful, personalised, moving and very well presented service. A big thank you goes to Adam for this too.

    We were pleased with all aspects of the funeral on the day. It was a difficult day for sure, however a fitting tribute to Kath which made it special.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and use Lymns services again in the future.

    Thank you so much for supporting our family and providing a second to none service.

    Mr & Mrs Brocklehurst & Family.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am absolutely delighted to read this wonderful review and to hear that you were so pleased with all that I did to support you through this difficult time. I am so glad that with my guidance you were able to create a service which was a fitting tribute to Kath. Please remember that I am always here to help you should you need me. Thank you. Karen.

Thank you again Karen.
  • 5 David Garbett 13th Dec 2020

    A funeral plan for my father Jonathan was prepared with assistance of Karen at AW Lyman Sutton earlier this year, which was the best thing we did as my father made all his own choices for the eventual arrangements.
    When he died , from initial contact with Karen at AW Lyman the whole funeral process  and arrangements  were excellently arranged with constant communications from Karen along the way.
    On the day of the funeral everything went as smoothly as necessary without any issues .
    Our whole family would like to thank Karen for her excellent care and professional assistance throughout.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    David, thank you & the rest of the family for taking the time to leave the lovely review, I am so pleased the funeral went as planned. We we last met you mentioned how well everything went, from the civil celebrant Michael Elliott, to the music, flowers and even when you returned home, and I am glad that I was able to assist you in creating this. Thank you, Karen.
  • 5 Gordon and Janet Fisher 24th Oct 2020

    I was very impressed with the way Karen dealt with us .She was very supportive and sympathetic and everything we organised for Gordon was completed successfully despite last minute changes. I would definitely recommend your services.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely review particularly your kind words about Karen and the sympathetic support she gave throughout. We are glad that she was able to arrange for Adam Humphries to step in and oversee the service for you when the original celebrant became unavailable. Thank you.
  • 5 Gillian Taylor 12th Oct 2020

    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.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    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.
  • 5 Sue Wordswo 30th Sep 2020

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that everyone looked after you so well during this difficult time. Thank you.
  • 5 Kathleen Cotton-Marston 19th Sep 2020

    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

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    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 Brian DODDS 10th Aug 2020

    Attention to detail and a very caring and professional approach by the staff made a difficult time more bearable.

    We are glad that Karen's attention to detail and caring nature made this sad time a little easier for you and she joins me in thanking you for your kind words.
