I would just to like to say thank you so much for your professionalism and for giving Jamie the best funeral I could of hoped for. The coffin was amazing all of the guests could not believe their eyes they had never seen anything like it. Also thank you for taking such good care of Jamie you did everything that was asked of you and I felt a great comfort knowing he was being so well looked after.

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.

    From initial telephone calls, through meetings to the day of the funeral, our funeral director, Mick Scholefiel, was wonderful. When making arrangements his advice and patience was really appreciated. The day of the funeral went very smoothly and greatly helped to relieve the stress of these occasions. I would recommend A W Lymn, Cotmanhay, to anyone wanting an excellent service from a funeral director.
