David Barrington. David’s story is best told in his own words: “I was brought up around the funeral business, our family home was where the cars were parked so when growing up I spent most of my time playing in limousines and hearses and for a young boy these cars were quite exciting. However whe...

The Leverton family has been arranging funerals for people in this part of London since 1789. Yes, they’re now into their eighth generation; they’re steeped in heritage, drenched in history. This makes them an attractive-seeming proposition. After all, a good old family business is exactly what m...

Edward Towner, Dip FD. Fifth generation. The business was started by his great-great grandfather in 1875. Masses of heritage here, but absolutely none of the nothing-to-learn attitude which besets many such family affairs. Those vocational impulses Edward experienced when he was a teenager all gu...

Richard Ward. Still fairly recently established in Enderby, but with 30 years of funeral service behind him. It all began for him at 17 when he was waiting to be old enough to train as a nurse. The Youth Opportunity Programme asked him if he wanted to be a trainee embalmer for six months and, bec...

James Showers (50s). Onetime ad-man, James’s has been a life journey of rich variety and varied vistas. A seeker after truth and beauty. Drawn to the dismal trade by “my father’s appallingly perfunctory disposal ceremony, and my mother’s funeral, which was excellent due to our strong insistence o...

Oliver and Toby Holmes. Sons of David Holmes (who founded the company and who attends 99% of funerals as a driver / bearer), Ollie and Toby are quite extraordinarily lovely young men. We met Toby only briefly, as he was busy with the business of the day, but spent quite some time with Ollie, the ...

Andrew Smith. Found himself drawn to be a funeral director when he was a young man, but a period of work experience with an uncaring funeral director put him off and he went to work in insurance. His dream did not die, however. It grew in strength as did his resolve to become the very best a fune...

A.W. Lymn is a large family firm founded in 1907. This isn’t necessarily a good thing. Family businesses can run out of steam and get very complacent. Big businesses can be faceless and impersonal. This is not what you want from a funeral director. But Lymn’s has admirably and triumphantly avoide...
