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 arranger Karen Knighton.

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.

  • 5 Victoria Bailes 12th Apr 2020

    I had to organize my mum’s funeral at a distance during lockdown here in Italy and I couldn’t have wished for a kinder or more sympathetic person than Karen. Punctual and understanding in the telephone appointments at a really difficult time for everyone. She guided me through each phase and provided all the necessary information for florist etc.  A big thank you

  • 5 Michaela Breen 6th May 2019

    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. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Many thanks for your kind words, we are glad that we could make this difficult time a little easier for you. Thank you, Dan.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
