About Us

The office, known as The Old Farm, is located in one of the oldest buildings in Mansfield Woodhouse, a former farmhouse that has recently been completely refurbished. It is set in lovely rural surroundings and has a beautiful service chapel, family rooms, visiting rooms, cold room facilities, washing facilities for specific funeral rites, plenty of parking and a full fleet of hearse and limousines.

Cyril Welsh Funeral Directors, who previously had offices at the premises, was incorporated by the A W Lymn group. The branch has most of our north Nottingham fleet on site, including a Rolls-Royce Phantom VII hearse and matching limousines.

Jonathan Baker is the area manager and the office is staffed by funeral directors Andy Askew, Stacey Burman (who is currently on maternity leave) and funeral arranger Wendy Walker, who will be more than pleased to assist you during our office hours which are Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5pm and on Saturday from 9 am to 12.30 pm.

If you need assistance outside of these hours, please call our telephone number at any time and the office can be opened for you at your convenience.

The branch serves all of Mansfield Woodhouse and its surrounding area including Berry Hill, Blidworth, Church Warsop, Clipstone, Forest Town, Harlow Wood, Ladybrook, Mansfield, Pleasley, Rainworth, Ravenshead, Shirebrook, Warsop, Warsop Vale and beyond.

Nigel, Jackie and Matthew Lymn Rose manage A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service.

  • 5 Barbara Elaine Hall 27th Feb 2021

    It was a wonderful time from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble for Jonathan and I was made to feel relaxed about the whole thing. The video we had made was fantastic and I’m so pleased that I used this service. It was wonderful to watch afterwards and for family members from afar who could not attend to be able to watch the whole ceremony. Everything was just perfect and dad would have loved the whole thing. We really did him proud with Lymns  help,care and advice. I could  not have wished for more. What could have been a traumatic time turned out to be a wonderful, warm experience. Thankyou all so much. Elaine Hall

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Elaine, we are really grateful to you for taking the time to leave this kind review. It was a privilege to be asked to help you and your family through this difficult time and I am particularly pleased that you were delighted with the video service. Thank you and take care, Wendy & Jonathan.

Leading up to and on the day of the funeral the family received excellent support. The friendly and professional service made a very difficult time more manageable. Thank you to all the team for your kindness and help.

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.
