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.

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.
