  • 5 Gill Turton 11th Oct 2018

    I cannot adequately express my gratitude to the Stapleford branch of A W Lymn following the sudden, tragic death of our son. From the moment of our first visit - without appointment - we were treated with nothing but kindness and understanding.  They all went out of their way to help us through the most painful time of our lives. Our thanks go to Natalie, Julie and Deanna and, in particular Tracey who went over and well above the call of duty with her help, not only to my husband and me but also to our granddaughter and daughter.  We are so grateful for this and for her patience and empathy before and after the funeral. Thank you so much.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your wonderful review and 5* rating. We are pleased that the team at Stapleford and Tracey in particular showed kindness, patience and empathy to you and the rest of your family and offered great support to you all during this difficult time. Thank you.

    Lymns - excellent. Celebrant - not so good, stumbled over a few words and i had to write her whole script for her

    All the arrangements for the funeral were handled in a very professional manner. The funeral from our house to Bramcote Crematorium was handled with great dignity as was the interment of ashes at Beeston Cemetery. We couldn't have asked for better service and our thanks go to Tracey Sweeting-Rowe who arranged the funeral for us.

    Both Tracey and I would like to thank you for these kind words. We are pleased that she and Derek provided professional service and that everything progressed with great Dignity on the day. Thank you.

  • 5 Beverley Anne Cameron 27th Sep 2017

    The funeral arrangements for my Dad Bob Cameron were handled superbly by Lymn's. They listened to us and interpreted our wishes perfectly. They put no pressure on us and their excellent staff gave us great comfort and support in the days up to the funeral and on the day itself! Nothing was too much trouble we customised the funeral a little to reflect Dad and they arranged it all. The order of service was professionally done, the flowers were gorgeous and they handled the charity collections very professionally. Dad ended up with a tasteful send off that truly reflected the man that he was and gave support and comfort to all the family. I cannot praise the staff enough. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone. Bev Cameron

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that Tracey's support, guidance and attention to detail helped you to create a tasteful and personalised service for your Dad, and that you got great comfort from her and the rest of her team. Thank you.
  • 5 Barbara Ann Corbett 8th Sep 2017

    Everything about the service we received was excellent. Every member of staff, from Tracey in the Stapleford office to Richard and the drivers made a sad time tolerable for all of the family.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this nice review. We are pleased that the service and support offered by Tracey, Richard and the rest of their team made this sad time tolerable for you. Richard has also asked me to pass on that it was his privilege to care for you and your family and that he is grateful for your kind comments.
  • 5 KEVIN CURTIS 11th Aug 2017

    Tracey was so easy to deal with, she had a very kind nature and nothing was to much trouble. During the funeral Richard explained everything and took me through every step of the way, not rushing us after the cremation allowing all the morners to come and offer their heart felt sympathy, when you consider there was about 150 attending it took a considerable time.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Richard offered support and guidance at the time of the funeral and allowed sufficient time for you to speak with the mourners afterwards. We are also glad that you found Tracey to be kind and caring and would thank you for this lovely review.
