    Scott is the ultimate professional, and deals with every situation in the correct manner. This is unfortunately our second funeral in a few months. The minute we walked back in, not only did he recognise us, he acknowledged the situation and took his job to the next level. Thank you Scott for looking after our family so well. Richard.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending Scott and the team at AW Lymn in Ilkeston.  Funeral arrangements were made with care and discretion which made things so much easier for the family at a very difficult time.  Scott was always available to answer any questions we had and also put us in touch with an excellent funeral celebrant who wrote a wonderful service.  Many thanks for your help.

    Scott was brilliant from start to finish couldn't have asked for a better person to help us through this difficult time.I can't remember how many times we just nip in to have a chat sort things out but he always had a smile and time just to sit and talk.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Scott was always available to talk things through and offer help and advice, and he joins me in thanking you for the kind words you have written about him and the support he offered.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

  • 5 Lyn and Charles Newton 22nd Jan 2018

    Impressed by everything, but was a little disappointed with the flowers for the top of the coffin. For £100.00 it didn't look anything like the double ended coffin sprays in the brochure, nor did it seem 3 feet in length. However we were thoroughly impressed with the cars and service provided by the drivers and bearers, and Scott for his compassion when sorting out the arrangements. The vicar was excellent, clearly spoken and everyone said at the end that they thought the service was a truly beautiful one and that we had done Joan proud.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your high appraisal of the service provided by Scott and the rest of his team at this sad time. We are glad that you were impressed by everything and Scott will also pass on your review to Reverend Halliday so he can see the kind words you have written about him. We are however sorry that you were disappointed with the floral tribute that was provided. As the flowers were included as part of one of our packages there was no specific value attributed to them but they were detailed as being 3 ft. in size and so this will require investigating for you. I will therefore ensure that the photographs of the tribute are found and looked at, and someone will be in contact with you directly once this has been done. Thank you.
  • 5 Graham Lacey 20th Jan 2018

    Nothing but praise for this company, a classy job just as requested

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your high appraisal, we are glad that everything was handled as you requested and would thank you for your praise.
  • 5 Ann Eedy 15th Jan 2018

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this kind review, we are pleased that everything went well for you and that you father was treated with dignity throughout. We would also thank you for your recommendation.
