    We had previously had Lymn's for my dad's funeral four years ago, and were so impressed then, that we decided to have them again for mum's yesterday. They are extremely friendly, kind and sensative, and very professional. David Combe, at the Mansfield branch, always has time for you, never tries to rush you, and goes through every aspect of planning the funeral with you, with great care and understsnding. I would highly recommend them.
