Thank you for your help and support, guiding us through this difficult time. Special thanks to Karen Horton for her compassion and arranging a truly memorable funeral for my husband.

Heather Atherton 12th Apr 2024

We can't thank A W Lymn Sutton In Ashfield enough for their care and compassion during this difficult time after our dad passed. Karen looked after Dad and every aspect of Dad's care and funeral. A phone call, an email or a chat was never too much. Dad's funeral was everything he would have wanted and he would have been very proud. So thank you for making his final wishes a reality. Many thanks to all the staff, especially Karen, Wendy, Jonathan and Andy. And lastly just to say, Karen doesn't just do her job to the highest of standards..... she becomes a well trusted friend. Thank you so much x From the family of Don Lancashire

  • 5 Julia Chalkley 25th Mar 2024

    From our first meeting we felt at ease and that our Son and Partner would be well cared for.The fact he had to be repatriated was not a problem to Lymns.On the day of the funeral all members of staff showed care and compassion  Thank you to you all 

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you Julia, Neil and Paul for such a lovely review – I was so pleased that the Repatriation from Barbados went with ease and we were able to get James home as soon as the authorities gave us the go ahead. Karen.
  • 5 Karen Hook 10th Mar 2024

    All staff were kind and considerate and very sensitive to our needs. Courteous and polite and went that extra mile to ensure that everything went smoothly. The staff who collected my mum‘s body were very sensitive to the family’s distress. Even though I feel we challenged Karen to change some things which were difficult, she rose to the occasion and accommodated our needs. Jonathan was informative, super smart  and kind. Coffin bearers were excellent and manoeuvred perfectly. Compared to other funeral directors that I have used, A W Lymns were the absolute cream of the crop. I will be definitely recommending them to everyone I know. Thank you so much, you did everything perfectly. This meant a lot to the family.

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you to you Karen and to Gill & Val for taking the time to leave this lovely review! We are glad that the funeral was a fitting tribute, Barbara was obviously a well loved and special lady. Karen, Jonathan and all the Sutton Team

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you very much for your kind words. It was a great privilege being asked to look after you and the rest of the family in caring for Aunty Pat. A lovely funeral service during which family and friends could take time to remember Pat’s kindness, care and selfless nature. Thank you again, Colum.

    I thank you, Jane, for taking the time to leave a review at this difficult time, especially with it being Christmas. It was a sad day, but everything was perfect. Jackie.
  • 5 John O'Neill 28th Nov 2023

    Karen was very helpful from start to finish and the information provided made our efforts very easy.

    the only snag was that order of service and donation envelopes arrived with the hearse and were hurriedly distributed to the mourners who were already in church

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this 5* review. I am sorry that traffic on the day of the funeral meant that the drivers were unable to collect the order of service to arrive at the service ahead of time, but am grateful for your kind understanding surrounding this. Karen.
  • 5 Allison Sanderson 30th Oct 2023

    The service has been excellent right from making the difficult first phone call. We dealt with Karen at the Sutton in Ashfield branch and she was fantastic. She was sensitive, empathetic and so helpful with everything, guiding us through the difficult process. Nothing was too much trouble. 
    On the day of the funeral too, the team that looked after us were brilliant and professional.
    Thank you all for your help at such a difficult time. 

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you, Allison, for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. It was a privilege to support and arrange everything you wanted for your mum.  We’re so pleased to read that “Marina’s” service was what you wanted for her – Thank you Karen & Andy.
  • 5 Martin Wright 8th Jul 2023

  • 5 Lee Bromley 13th Feb 2023

    The whole team were totally professional throughout what was my first time arranging a funeral. Karen couldn’t have been more caring and helpful and made a tough situation much easier to cope with. Thanks to David Coombs and Mark Andrew for what they did on and before the day of the funeral. I will be forever grateful for this. I would recommend AW Lymn in a heartbeat 

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you, Lee, Margaret and Nigel, for taking the time to leave such lovely words. It was so nice to see your family supporting each other, and may I say, it was a privilege to look after you all following the sad loss of a dearly loved Husband and Dad.

    From first contact to collecting Dad's Ashes, the service received from all the Staff was first class which is what Dad deserved.

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    We thank you Julie, Helen, Fiona and all the family for these kind words. The funeral was a team effort with Andy making the arrangements and looking after you on the day, and my support in between from the office so I am glad that you felt well looked after by both of us. Karen.
  • 5 Susan Lloyd 22nd Jan 2023

    A.W. Lymn funeral services arranged the funeral of our late mum, Mrs Sylvia Mary Morrell who sadly passed away in December 2022.

    The professionalism, empathy and respect not only to the relatives in bereavement, but also for the deceased in the overall attention to detail of the whole services given was impeccable from start to finish. Every need and individual requirement was attended to, enabling you to give your relative the funeral they deserve.

    Our thoughts and thankyou's go out to all personnel including those behind the scenes who you never meet. Special heartfelt thanks and credit for there services are Karen at the Sutton office who went out of her way to ensure you were looked after and Johnathan who guided us on the day from pick up until he dropped us off after the service.

    We would also like to say a thankyou to the celebrant Katie Page who held the beautiful service ensuring every detail of our wishes was perfect, which it was.

    A last and massive thankyou to you all.

    Susan, Dave, Ian and Heather. (Sylvia's family).

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you Susan for taking the time to leave such a lovely detailed review – it was a pleasure to look after Sylvia and all of your family, and to deliver (beyond) what you required. I felt truly honoured to assist in arranging this fitting and beautiful service to Sylvia. Thank you, Karen.
  • 5 Alan Wardle 5th Nov 2022

    The service provided by Jonathan and Karen was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble in making sure everything was as I wanted to be. Karen made Eileen look so at peace in the chapel of rest. The flowers were perfect. Johnathan was his normal calm unflappable self. Many thanks for making my day. John Wardle. 

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you, Mr Wardle, for taking his time to leave such an overwhelming review, we were both honoured to assist in arranging a fitting and beautiful tribute to Eileen. I have also passed your kind words to Fiona our florist for the wonderful Rose coffin spray colour idea, she certainly delivered what she said, they were beautiful!! Thank you, Karen.
  • 5 Janice Chrich 29th Oct 2022

    Firstly I would like to thank Karen at AW Lymn,Sutton in Ashfield for her guiding hand in arranging my husband's funeral. We received a first class service from the first time we visited Karen. The order of service that she produced was absolutely amazing.
    I would also like to thank Karen for pairing us with Mark Andrew the celebrant, his service was absolutely perfect in paying our respects to my husband Rob,it showed a true portrayal of his life and sense of humour,we couldn't have wished for anything better, it made a very difficult day so much easier to bear.
    The cars,flowers,drivers and pall bearers were second to none. First class service from beginning to end.
    Thank you all so much.

    A.W. Lymn, Sutton Team replied
    Thank you Janice for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. I have sent a copy of the email to the celebrant Mark Andrew and as like ourselves here at A W Lymn Mansfield Area team – he thanks you for such lovely words too. I am so pleased that everything went as it was arranged creating a service that honoured Rob. As for the service stationary, I can’t take all the credit Janice, as you provided the photo for the idea. It is very clear that Rob will be dearly missed but very much loved, not just by his family but by all that knew him. Thank you again, Karen.

    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.

    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.
