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.

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.

  • 5 Lynn Elaine Desforges 20th Jul 2018

    Cannot fault anything about them, from our first phone call the service from Lymn at Mansfield Woodhouse was outstanding. Special mention must go to Jonathon W. Baker who was so respectful and diligent, an attentive genuine professional who is an absolute credit to himself & this family business. Nothing was too much trouble; everything was dealt with in a respectful sensitive manner from Jonathon. A particular mention to Elaine who was so kind and supportive at every step ensuring we were all taken care of. All the staff went out of their way to make sure everything was just how we wanted it, a thank you also to include Ben & Mark. The drivers & cars too were immaculate and the standard and professionalism of the team was just truly exceptional on the day. At such a sad time the care shown to Marion, our Mum & Gran, was truly memorable for us. Thank you to one and all for taking care of us. We highly recommend A. W. Lymn, we would ask them to provide the funeral services to our loved ones in the future. A. W. Lymn, you can be exceptionally proud of the amazing team you have at Mansfield Woodhouse. Lynn Desforges & family

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    From the initial contact to the completion of the funeral you and your family were a pleasure to serve. On behalf of Elaine, myself and all the team that made the funeral happen, we thank you for your kind comments and are glad that the funeral was a fitting tribute to Mrs Smedley. I will always remember with a smile the music that we left the crematorium chapel to, which was the theme tune to Mrs Smedley’s favourite television programme, (if you want to know what it is, to paraphrase the famous Home Guard Captain, the answer would be ‘Don’t tell ‘em Jonathan’) It is always very gratifying when a family takes the time, at such a difficult period in their lives to thank us, and it is greatly appreciated. Jonathan.

    Can’t praise them enough. Everyone so kind and helpful and reassuring. Jonathan is so professional and caring he makes you feel so safe. Jonathan looked after us like we were his own family. This is the 4th time we have used A.W.Lymn for mine and my husbands parents and we would not even think of using anyone else, the service gets better and better. Thank you Jonathan and the team for making a very hard day’s easier x

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind and detailed review, it really is appreciated when a family takes the time to pass on their thanks in this way. Jonathan and Elaine have also asked that I pass on that it was their privileged to have served you again and it is always very gratifying when they receive such heartfelt thanks from a family that they have helped and built up a relationship with over the years.
  • 5 Philip Anthony Goodall 28th Nov 2017

    We would like to take this opportunity to extend our thanks to the team at AW Lymn at Mansfield Woodhouse, with regard to the funeral organisation for my mother. The process from start to finish was carried out with professionalism,sensitivity and efficiency which is so helpful when the bereaved are working whilst at their most vulnerable. In particular we would like to mention the small things that give added value to the process. Availability for advice at all times, phone calls from Lymns to check that all is in order the day before the funeral and,of course, the adherence to the small points of respect shown to the deceased throughout the funeral. All members of the team are valuable to the finished product, and our thanks must be extended to all, but we would like to mention the service provided by Elaine throughout the organisation and the sensitive, respectful and efficient service given by Jonathan and his team on the day. Thank you again. Philip and Janet Goodall

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this positive and detailed review, we are glad that you felt so well looked after throughout. Elaine and Jonathan are also pleased that the arrangements went as requested and are grateful to you for your kind words. It is their privilege to serve such a nice family, and although they were doing what they were there to do, it is very heartening for them to hear that the funeral was a fitting tribute to Mrs Goodall. Thank you.
