Jackie gave excellent service from the moment I walked in.. Very high standards and very sympathetic...  Andy who was the main pall bearer,  was so understanding and conducted my brothers final resting place to the highest standards. These two people are such a massive credit to the shirebrook company  Thank you on behalf of my family for your excellent service 

Angela McKiernon 21st Nov 2020

I cannot recommend A.W. Lymns highly enough! At every stage, they were very professional, respectful, compassionate and understanding. With their professional support and guidance, I was able to honour my husbands final wishes, in the way that he wanted.

About Us

Started by Andy Askew in the early 1990’s, this funeral home was incorporated into the A W Lymn group in September 2004.

Andy has remained as a funeral director at A W Lymn and has conducted many of the funerals in Shirebrook, becoming very well known in the community. Nowadays, Andy is based in our Mansfield Woodhouse branch, so Jackie Potter currently arranges most funerals at Shirebrook.

Jackie can assist you Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and also in after-office hours by appointment.

The branch features private parking, visiting rooms, a reception area, family rooms and cold room facilities.

The office covers all of Shirebrook and its surrounding areas including Berry Hill, Blidworth, Church Warsop, Clipstone, Forest Town, Harlow Wood, Ladybrook, Mansfield, Pleasley, Rainworth, Ravenshead, Warsop, Warsop Vale and beyond.

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

    I’ve never organised a funeral before so felt a massive pressure to get it all right. Jackie guided me through the process, and Andy was an angel. Together they both helped me make sure it was the send off my grandma deserved.  Very communicative, respectful and understanding. Nothing was too much trouble and they couldn’t accommodate me enough. I am grateful to them for everything. I got the best of service at the worst of times.

    My dear mum's funeral was superbly organised right down to the finest detail and everything went off without a hitch. All the staff were very professional, sympathetic and helpful and I would not hesitate to recommend AW Lymn to my friends. The offices at Shirebrook are lovely, the cars too and we are so pleased that we chose Lymn's to organise mum's funeral.

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.
