A.W. Lymn has announced it will be offering financial support packages and advice for those who are struggling to afford funeral costs, with “fully attended funerals” from £1,650 and for those that require unattended direct cremations the prices are “considerably less”.
The fifth-generation family run business has been helping the bereaved for more than 100 years and now operates 27 funeral homes throughout Nottinghamshire and South Derbyshire.
As part of their financial support offering, clients can purchase vouchers which can be used as a contribution towards the cost of services provided by any division of the A.W. Lymn group.
The directors also offer support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, alongside an array of services to help with financial needs, including loans, vouchers and even help with DWP claims.
Nigel Lymn Rose, company chairman at A.W. Lymn, said: “Our unique loans system offers a lifeline for those who are faced with an unexpected funeral bill. It takes the stress away and you can see the relief on peoples’ faces when they know everything is being taken care of.
“We have thought of every possibility and devised a payment plan accordingly. Each home also has a close relationship with a local firm of solicitors, so we are able to assist with any procedures if needed.”
He added: “We know people want a personal service, a friendly face to recognise in the streets, all while knowing the financial situation is all dealt with, and that’s the exact service we continue to offer.”
