Excellent service from initial contact right through to the actual funeral. Communication was superb and at no time did we feel we were being hurried or asking silly questions. Advice was freely given without any pressure and we never felt that we were being steered to pick more expensive options. Would wholeheartedly recommend A W Lymn in Sutton in Ashfield for a respectful, professional service for your family.

Trevor Gill 13th Feb 2019

They could not have done better than they did this is probably the wrong word to use but it was a perfect service from start to finish, and that has been told to me by many of our large family that live locally as well as by many friends. I thank Karen Horton the Sutton Branch Manager, and Andy and his team on the day as well as Andy's visit to me in the early stages of planning the funeral. Excellent all round and 10 Stars out five is the only way I can put it.

Lynne Dennis 9th Feb 2019

The service was excellent and we would highly recommend. From the first meeting with Karen at the Sutton in Ashfield branch, who treated us with such kindness and gave all the advice we needed, to the staff on the day who were so thoughtful and professional. Thank you for giving my sister the dignified send-off she so deserved.

  • 5 james valentine 19th Oct 2018

    the funeral and arrangements were above my expectations. the only fault I could find on the day was the inside of the personal cars could have been a little more time spent on cleaning. no disrespect to the driver or company but as a person that was in the same line this could have been a bit better.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to review the service provided by the team at Sutton, we are pleased that they exceeded your expectations. We are however sorry that you were a little disappointed by the presentation of the vehicles and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss this further with you. Thank you.

  • 5 Ian Smith 24th Sep 2018

    Everyone in the Lymn's office in Sutton in Ashield was incredible. They are so caring and human and also very professional. My mum's funeral happened just as we had planned it and went off without a hitch. The people involved were so respectful towards mum and very concerned to please the family and I. I would not hesitate to recommend Lymn's to anyone and will certainly use them in case of future need. Ian Smith

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Mr Smith for taking the time to leave such a lovely comment and for your recommendation.
