Excellent service, friendly staff very professional. Wonderful.

Robert Finney 19th Feb 2019

 The service overall was very professional and caring. Colum O’Shea at Ollerton provided an excellent service and attention to detail was very good, assisting us every step of the way. The only thing that was a little disappointing was that we had included a pair of earrings to be with mum with her outfit. Unfortunately these were missed and were not with her when we came to see her. Colum however sorted the situation promptly and professionally explaining what had happened and assured us that they would be with mum the following morning.  The standard of service Lymns had provided was excellent and we thank you for making this difficult time an easier process.

    Wonderful, professional, caring service. Arranging a funeral for the first time can be quite a daunting experience. However, the help and advice I received was just fantastic. I can’t thank you enough.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this kind review. We appreciate how daunting an experience arranging a funeral can be, particularly when it is the first time someone has had to do this, and so we are glad that Colum's professional and caring service and great advice helped support you throughout. Thank you.
  • 5 Helen Braben 17th Dec 2018

    Colum is a very kind, gentle and considerate gentleman who was always able to make time to discuss our needs and wishes. He went out of his way to help with extra arrangements we required for my husband’s funeral and wake. The service provided on the day by Lymns was excellent with Colum making sure that everything was as we wanted it and allowing us the time to do things at our own pace. I could not imagine anyone being able to do such a good job as Colum and his team both in advance of and then at the funeral itself. Thank you for making such a difficult time a little easier to bear.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It is really wonderful to read the kind words you have written about Colum and the service and support he gave to you and your family during this sad time. Colum has said that he is pleased everything was as you wanted and has asked me to convey his personal thanks to you for your kind words.

  • 5 Jo Garrigan 6th Jul 2018

    The service was exemplary from the collection of John's body to the burial in his final resting place. The funeral itself led by Stacey Bentley ran like clockwork - organised, efficient and unobtrusive.  Similarly, her professionalism, empathy and advice in the previous week was much appreciated. At a time of great stress and sadness it was reassuring to feel that she was well in control. Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Stacey professionalism, empathy and advice made this sad and stressful time a little easier for you, and that the rest of her team provided exemplary service throughout. Stacey joins me in thanking you for your kind words and this positive review.
  • 5 Margot Rhodes-Ellis 8th Apr 2018

    All members of staff have been so professional and supportive. As I have had to deal with arrangements for my Mum by myself, Darren has been especially patient and helpful as there have been times when I have been very much overcome by emotion with regards to making arrangements. He has gone the extra mile. People have said Mum's funeral was beautiful and that she would have been proud of me, but I would not have been able to do it without the help of AW Lymn. Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this lovely review. We are pleased that Darren's patience and support helped guide you during this difficult time and enabled you to create a personalised and beautiful service for your Mum. Thank you.

  • 5 Michelle McNamara 26th Jul 2017

    At such a sad time, I felt both my Mum who had passed away, and myself were treated with the utmost respect. Darren explained everything carefully, and tactfully, and we were even able to have some lighthearted moments reminiscing about my Mum. I felt as though he wanted to know about her and her life so he could provide the best service for her. Mum's burial was some distance away, but this caused no issues at all, and everything on the day was run exceptionally well by Andy and his staff. All-in-all, a perfect funeral for a perfect lady. Thank you so much for what you have done, and for offering continued support, this means a lot to me.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words about Darren and the support he offered to you during this sad time. We are pleased he took the time to listen to your wishes and help you create the funeral that your Mum had wanted and are glad that Andy took care of you on the day. Thank you.
