A.W. Lymn praises trainee exam success

Qualifications have been awarded to Ethan Hickey, Isabel Walton and Charis Bull all part of the four-year trainee programme at the funeral directors

A.W. Lymn is celebrating the recent exam success of its trainees, who have passed the British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons (BRAMM) fixing exams.

Qualifications have been awarded to Ethan Hickey, Isabel Walton and Charis Bull all part of the four-year trainee programme at the Nottinghamshire funeral directors.

The fixing exam requires the trainees to demonstrate they are competent in fixing a headstone with the help of an assistant.

Hickey has now moved to the Stonemason’s office to learn about the administrative part of the role, while Walton has moved to the A.W. Lymn’s Nottingham funeral home and Bull has moved to the business’ mortuary.

Pete Clarson, A.W. Lymn’s commercial director who oversees the trainees, said: “We are thrilled that the trainees have all passed the BRAMM exam.

“They are all doing so well and we’re looking forward to watching them flourish as they progress through the rest of the programme and gain the relevant experience they need for long and successful careers in our profession.”

He added: “It’s great to see young adults who have an interest and passion for the funeral industry, which aligns with our objective of helping those wanting to pursue a career.

“Often people think that a job in funeral care means working with the dead – but that isn’t always the case, it’s more about looking after the living at a difficult time, which is what we like to demonstrate to our trainees.”
