From the beginning to the end we were treated with sensitivity. Everything went well on the day and most importantly we had nothing to worry about as everything was taken care of  Many many thanks

Outstanding. From the upsetting moment I had to call them out in the early hours of the morning, to the funeral and after support, Lymns have simply been oustanding. The team at Hucknall manage to balance being professional, efficient and organised with being friendly, empathetic and caring. They sensitively guided me through the right choices for my mum and the day ran so smoothly, it was just right. Special mention to Caroline and Catherine, at no point did I ever doubt everything would be anything but perfect, due to their care and attention. Thank you. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them.
