Thank you Jackie for your help and support through this sad time. You were passionate and professionally throughout our meeting and really explained everything to us. We left feeling relieved and content with the service that is being held on 15/10/21

Peter Warren 1st Oct 2021

They were superb from first contact to the whole arrangements, they arranged everything to suit what Lynn wanted and had asked for. Jackie and Andy at the Shirebrook branch made it special with little details that mattered to the family cannot thank them enough for what they did and their help and guidance.

Carolyn Best 27th Sep 2021

Having used another service last year for another family member A W Lymn was a far better value for money and we hasd far more extras on this occasion. Felt very supported throughout what was a difficult time. Would definitely recommend

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.

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.
