Guide to Funeral Directors in Derby

Traditionally the county town of Derbyshire, Derby is a fascinating historical city and one of the birthplaces of the Industrial Revolution. From the 19th Century onwards, Derby grew from a market town into the centre of British railways and train manufacture, as well as an industrial hub of the north.

Serving a population of approximately 250,000 are around 21 funeral directors operating from 40 funeral homes. With a good variety of independent, family-run, or national companies, residents of Derby should have a good choice of local funeral directors.

According to the most recent data, Derby’s population comprises almost one-quarter BME (black and minority ethnicity) communities, including people of Pakistani and Indian heritage. Consequently, after Christianity and non-religious beliefs, Islam and Hinduism are the most common religions in Derby. As a result, you can expect most Derby funeral directors to be experienced in providing funeral services befitting a range of religious beliefs and cultural traditions.

Derby City Council is responsible for managing six cemeteries across the city, with new burial plots available in Nottingham Road Cemetery and Spondon. Burials in reopened graves or the interment of cremated ashes may be accepted at Uttoxeter Old Road, Normanton, Chellaston and Mickleover cemeteries. In additional, Markeaton Crematorium has facilities with two service chapels and a Garden of Remembrance.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

Excellent service couldn’t fault them. They are very professional, caring and understanding. I have used them both in Nottingham and now in Derby.

Mel Wilson 2020-01-14 00:51:25

The help and support from Michelle, Mick and Wayne was absolutely outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble despite the difficult circumstances we were faced with. The care and compassion shown was second to none. Our heartfelt thanks for looking after our loved one after his sad passing and helping us give him the amazing send off he truly deserved.

Lesley Needham 2020-01-12 20:38:02

From the moment we first made contact  with A W Lymn we felt heard, supported and respected. Every thought and wish we had for my parents funeral was honoured by them. The staff were wonderful, thoughtful and intuitive which at a sad and difficult time is so very important. The chapel of rest and ease of access to it was so very special.  My parents had a beautiful send off,  and we can do nothing but highly recommend them.

I wholeheartedly commend A.W. Lymn of Spondon for their organisation and their respect during a very difficult time for my family throughout the preparations for the funeral of our son. In particular I would like to thank Kevin and his team for their thoughtfulness, sincerity and absolute attention to detail both before and during the funeral at which they accommodated 220 mourners at Risley Church.
