We entrusted our son Desmond into the care of your company. From the minute he left our house with Wayne and Rebecca who handled the whole situation with sensitivity and respect. We immediately felt that he would be in safe hands. I will be forever grateful to Michelle Ibbett for her kindness, empathy and understanding, we had no idea about the.process of funerals and she explained everything in detail to us, sometimes several times as we weren't taking things in and couldn't believe our beloved son had died.We were supported by her to visit him as many times as we wanted, made to feel comfortable, offered tea and a genuine listening ear. Her professionalism and organizational skills were evident on the day of his funeral. Making it a beautiful stress fee final journey. Mick was a credit to his profession, ensuring everything ran smoothly a really lovely gentleman. Thank you all Clare and Des Ball

About Us

In 2003, the Cotmanhay branch joined A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service. Before then, it was the headquarters of the Ilkeston Co-op Funeral Service, which opened in 1979.

Bennerley House, the beautiful building where our home is located, originally belonged to a local carpenters and includes a reception area, family rooms, visitation rooms, cold room facilities and garaging for part of our fleet of Rolls Royce hearses and limousines.

Mick Schofield is our funeral director responsible for this office and is assisted by funeral arranger Michelle Ibbett.

The opening times are from 9 am to 5 pm from Monday to Friday, but you can call us at any time on our telephone number to arrange an appointment – we will then meet with you at your convenience.

The branch covers all of Cotmanhay and its surrounding area, including Awsworth, Cossall, Eastwood, Heanor, Langley Mill, Loscoe, Shipley, Smalley, Stanley, West Hallam and further afield.

A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service was founded in 1907 and is now managed by Nigel, Matthew and Jackie Lymn Rose.

    Thank you Ray for these lovely comments and kind words, It’s a shame I didn’t get to meet you again as we had to communicate via the telephone, but it was an honour to take care of your Grandad and help with the arrangements for his funeral. It was lovely to see so many people attend the funeral and Mick has asked me to also pass on his thanks to you, from Michelle and all at Cotmanhay

  • 5 Mary Murkin 3rd Feb 2021

    I just wanted to put into words how grateful we were for the wonderful funeral service which AW Lymn provided for my Mum. Everything went so smoothly from beginning to end.  We didn't know anything about A W Lymn before Mum passed away, other than the fact that there was an office near where she lived, and we relied on Google to make the decision about which funeral director to use. We are so glad that we made the right decision!  When my Mum passed away the thoughts of arranging her funeral were daunting, to say the least. However, Michelle at the Cotmanhay office, Richard the Civil Celebrant and Mick, who led the proceedings on the day, guided us through the process, not only professionally, but also with care and compassion. Thank you so much. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was a pleasure to arrange the funeral for your late mother and I am pleased we were able to help and guide you through this difficult time. It was lovely to hear mums journey in life and her passion of trains and the railways, as with all your family, which helped me personalise the service for her - one fitting for a truly remarkable lady. The flowers on the day were as lovely as I had expected them to be and I’m please you all got to enjoy them afterwards. Mick and Richard have asked me to send their personal thanks and best wishes to you all. From all the team at Cotmanhay Thank you and take care, Michelle.
  • 5 Christine Webster 20th Jan 2021

    From the first time I contacted you the process was very smooth, nothing was too much trouble, and everything was explained to me. On the day of the funeral, which ran very smoothly, everyone was very nice and explained how the funeral would go. Family and friends who attended said how very impressed they were and how nice the service was. Thank you Michelle, Michael and your team for doing a great job.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Christine, On behalf of Mick and myself we cant thank you enough for the kind words and taking the time to leave such a lovely review.

It was a privilege to help guide you through the arrangements and for Mick to look after you on the day. Thank you. Michelle.

  • 5 Rhiannon Jenkins-Tsang 4th Jan 2021

    I had to deal with a sudden bereavement as the only next of kin. Michelle was fantastic- supportive, compassionate and professional from the first phone call in the midst of the initial crisis. She kept things moving but always had time to talk- a rare skill. I would highly recommend her and the team at Cotmanhay. Nothing was too much trouble. They understand the emotional aspects of a bereavement but also hold your hand through the practicalities from organising the funeral to signposting how to register the death and what happens next. THANK YOU

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Rhiannon, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review.

Your kind words are very much appreciated, All the best to you all - Michelle.
