I would recommend Lymns funeral services after our recent experience with the funeral of our father. From the first phone call there  professionalism and caring approach was highly apparent. We were guided through the process with care and empathy. Advice and guidance was given throughout.  June.

  • 5 Joanne Milne 17th Jul 2018

    Mark Collishaw at A.W. Lymn Carlton was excellent from start to finish in helping me to arrange my sister's funeral. He is so professional and came up with some good ideas when I was struggling to decide what to do with certain things. Mark is very personable and nothing is too much trouble for him. He even hand stuck 450+ diamantes to my sister's coffin and helped me come up with a bespoke design. I went to see a couple of funeral homes before deciding and none came close to A.W. Lymn. Mark, the Funeral Director on the day was also very good and they even arranged for someone to look after my sister's dogs because I wanted them to walk her in to the Crematorium. Mark Collishaw even took time after work to attend my sister's celebration of life at Colwick Hall because we wanted him to attend part of the day, as he had put so much effort in. There were a couple of things on the day of the funeral that were slightly disappointing (seats not reserved as requested which meant older family members were standing at the back as so many people came and the car used for family had minor dust layer on dashboard and window ledges). I also didn't have a very positive or warm experience with City Flowers which is a shame as they are part of A.W. Lymn and in the end I opted for a separate florist. However, overall I would not hesitate to recommend A.W.Lymn at Carlton and cannot thank Mark Collishaw enough for his support during a very sad and difficult time.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Jo, thank you so much for taking the time to leave this lovely and detailed review, particularly in regard to the exceptional service, support and advice you received from Mark. He has asked me to pass on that it was a privilege to help you arrange Wendy's funeral, to see a sad occasion become a celebration of life and in a small way to get to know Wendy's personality. We are however sorry that there were slight issues with regards to seating in the chapel and dust in the cars and both of these matters have been discussed with the relevant staff so we can learn from them. We are also sorry that you felt that you did not receive warm or positive service from the staff in City Flowers and we would welcome any additional feedback or information in relation to this so we can look into it further for you. Thank you once again for both your kind words and your recommendation.

  • 5 Lynn Hickling 2nd Jul 2018

    Mark Collishaw was excellent in meeting our needs sympathetically, he was supportive when required & gently advised us when we asked for his help, funeral was excellent, my Dad would have been proud, everything perfect & smoothly operated from our perspective as customers though I'm sure behind the scenes was a different story to ensure my Dad had a beautiful service Every problem Mark was there to sort out & available whenever we called, nothing seemed too much, the staff scheduled to support Dads funeral day were superb, courteous, respectful & patient, thank you for helping make our last goodbye as special as we wanted it to be Daughter Karen & wife Lynn
