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.

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.

    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.

    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 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

  • 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 Kevin Blake 28th Apr 2020

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Kevin for taking the time to leave your heartfelt message, it is very well appreciated in these difficult times. In arranging the funeral details, from the conversations we had and telephone calls I have received your mum was a very well loved lady and will be sorely missed. Karen.

  • 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.

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. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

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?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
