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 Jacqui Petrovic 12th Mar 2017

    The compassion and support given by each member of the team during this difficult period in my life has exceeded any expectation I may have had. The respect shown towards the living and deceased was genuine and sincere. Following the funeral service I have received numerous compliments from family and friends on how professional, yet personal the service provided by Lymn's was. In the nicest possible way I do hope that I will not have to call upon their services for a while but when that time comes again I will not be looking for an alternative company to take care of my loved ones.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We would like to thank you for this kind and detailed review. We are pleased that you found every member of the team to be compassionate, supportive and respectful, and that others in attendance also commented on the professional yet personal service provided. We would further thank you for your recommendation and hope that it is indeed some considerable time before you require our services again.
  • 5 Simon La Roche 12th Mar 2017

  • 5 Angela McLaren 12th Feb 2017

    A W Lymns were absolutely amazing during the recent death of my 29 year old daughter. They were compassionate, understanding and kind they saw to every detail and made sure that everything ran smoothly. They way that Andy was with the deceased 9 year old daughter will stay with us for ever. They truly were amazing and we can't thank them enough for helping us through such a difficult time in our life's. They have never once demanded payments or requested money, even after the event. They have gone out their way to ensure we have the appropriate time to get our heads straight following a series of sad events. We have nothing but love for lymns and would highly recommend them to others should they need to use such a service. Our heart felt thanks to Elaine, Andy and all the team at Lymns you are truly a fantastic team and amazing and the job you do. With love Angela, Hayley, olivia and all the family of the late Rachel Louise Burton xx

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Angela, Hayley, Olivia and family. Initially we would say how sorry we are that it has been necessary for you to require our services for the funeral of someone so young.

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.
