This is the second time in a year that i have used Lymns. There support throughout the process is dealt with compassion patients  and empathy.  Their guidance throughout this difficult and stressful time takes the pressure from the individual, who’s having to deal with their loss. I can’t thank lymns enough and a real special thanks to Dan Barnes and Kevin Hall for their help and support though such a difficult time.

About Us

Our Derby office was originally established and opened by our funeral director David Meek, who remained at the office until his retirement in 2012, but who still continues to work on a casual basis. This funeral home became part of the A W Lymn group in 1986 and the premises are located in the City Centre, at Derwent House, on Becket Street.

The office features garaging for a new fleet of Rolls Royce Phantom cars and also displays a hearse from the 1890’s. Derwent House includes a reception, off-street parking, a family room, a visitation room, cold room facilities and washing facilities for Asian and African / Caribbean funeral rites.

Kevin Hall, our senior funeral director who manages the surrounding area, has been with A W Lymn since 2003 and is aided at the branch by funeral director Derek Twigg. Derek is also a licensed reader for the Church of England.

Our opening hours are 9 am to 5 pm from Monday to Friday, and 9 am to 12.30 pm on Saturday. You can call us anytime of the day, seven days a week to schedule an appointment outside of these hours if you would prefer.

This branch covers Derby city centre and its surrounding areas including Allestree, Alvaston, Belper, Breadsall, Chaddesden, Darley Abbey, Duffield, Littleover, Mackworth, Markeaton, Osmaston, Pride Park, Sinfin, Spondon and beyond.

Nigel Lymn Rose along with his son Matthew and his sister Jackie own and manage A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service.

    Lymn in Becket Street Derby provided a very professional and caring service. From the first contact with Dan everything was very efficient. At a very unpleasant time in my life it was a great comfort that Mum’s funeral was just as I wanted it to be. I was particularly pleased with the order of service and the ease of choosing the music i wanted. Thank you very much to the whole team.

    Having worked in the industry although for a rival company, I found them very professional,courteous,and very sympathetic. I would have no hesitation going back having both my mother and fathers funerals with A W Lymns

  • 5 Karen Davies 15th May 2018

    At a very upsetting time, Lymn's have been sensitive, helpful and caring.  Dan was patient to the last, helping us to come to the final decisions, explaining everything along the way. On the day, the whole funeral was conducted in a professional manner, which our Father would have been impressed with. We were treated kindly and directed like a finely tuned play. Excellent service. Thank you to all who helped the day go so well.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Dan’s kind, caring and patient manner helped support you during this sad time and that everything went well for you on the day. We would also thank you for taking the time to leave this positive review.
  • 5 Julia GIACOBBE 1st May 2018

    Kevin Hall & all the staff have been amazing. Sadly for us,this is our third family funeral in less than two years. On each occasion Lymns have helped & supported us through all the preparations.  On the day of the funeral, the staff were respectful & attentive. They had large umbrellas & made sure that everyone was dry & comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend Lymns, when a loved one passes away. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It has been an honour to be chosen each time to make the arrangements and carry out the service on the day for your family and I am grateful to you for taking the time to leave this lovely review of the service I provided. Thank you, Kevin.
