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 the funeral 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 the 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 at any time on the telephone number to arrange an appointment – you will then be able to arrange a meeting 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.

    Michelle was excellent, she made the whole process very easy, and chosing Tracey has the celebrant for the service was a fabulous decision. Everything ran smoothly and we'll remember the day for a long time. Thank you

    A.W. Lymn, Cotmanhay Team replied
    Dear Darren and Amanda, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. Having met your mother when she arranged the pre-paid plan it really was a pleasure to look after her when she passed, she really was a lovely lady. I’m really pleased the celebrant Tracey was a good match and that we were able to give mum the send off she deserved. It was lovely to hear you were all dancing at the end of the service to mums’ favourite song Penny Arcade, a song, when arranging the funeral, she said she loved and was adamant it to be played in her service. On behalf at us all at Cotmanhay Thank you again.

Options were discussed, without being pushy, we really could not have asked for better support throughout. The receptionist was always helpful, the staff on the day was amazing and Nothing was too much trouble for them. On behalf of the Turner family I wish to thank you all for your professional services and care given towards my wife.
