Excellent service and attention from the beginning. Nothing was too much trouble. Have used Lymn’s for over 20 years for other Family funerals and they get more professional as the years go by. There Limousines are the best  in the County, probably the Country. Perfection at its best. Thank you.

Jill Smith 3rd Oct 2017

 Big thankyou to Jonathon Nita Andy and Elaine for looking after us and making a difficult time more bearable, the flowers from city flowers were lovely , through the sadness we managed to have a little laugh with you which my dad would have seen the humour in as well . Once again thankyou from all of Arthur’s family X

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 Kathryn Alison Mabbott Bennett 26th Jul 2017

    Extremely professional service and staff. Elaine made arranging the service so easy, guiding me through the options with no pressure and making me feel at ease at a very difficult time. Their attention to detail meant that the funeral ran smoothly. All the staff we met were professional, yet warm and friendly. The compassion and support given by each member of the team was reassuring as was their respect for both the living and deceased. Do not hesitate to order the flowers from City Flowers, part of their group, ours exceeded expectations and I am an ex florist so very fussy. They were truly beautiful and very reasonably priced. I have recommended A W Lymn to several people since my Mum's funeral and will continue to do so.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you very much for your kind words and recommendation, particularly your high appraisal of the tribute provided by City Flowers with this being your area of expertise. We are glad that the team at Woodhouse looked after you so well during this sad time and that Elaine was able to make the arrangements easy for you by guiding you through the process without any pressure. Thank you.

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.

Read more: How to arrange a funeral

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.

Read more: What are disbursements

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.
