Penny Harding 4th Aug 2019

Apart from the upset at not being able to see the body of my husband to say a final goodbye, everything else passed off smoothly. We were treated kindly and with consideration. The arrangements at the crematorium all went according to plan. So a grateful thankyou to all concerned. Penny Harding.

Zaphron Parker 10th Jul 2019

Outstanding service from everyone we meet at Lymns. It felt like they went above and beyond for our family and helped us all the way through at such a hard time for all of us. Lesley at long Eaton was so respectful to my mum who passed away. We had never planned or thought about a funeral before but she guided us all though what happens and there services no pushing us to have the most expensive service it was always what we wanted. From the moment we first met with the funeral home until mum had her funeral they was so helpful. The respect they shown my mum was phenomenal. Her funeral was one of the hardest things I will ever had to do but Lymns made the day go with such ease. Thank you so much for helping us with one of the toughest times of our life. From Zaphron and the family

About Us

Our Long Eaton office is located at Lime Grove in Long Eaton, which is in peaceful surroundings inside the cemetery gates at West Park.

The site was purchased from Dick Webb funeral service in 1981 and opened as an A. W. Lymn funeral home in June 1982.

The building was the local public mortuary and features an unusual copper roof. As well as a large reception area, the premises features family rooms, visiting rooms, funeral cars from our fleet and parking on the outside, and it was completely refurbished in 2013.

Richard Marshall is the area senior funeral director and the office is run by funeral director Louise Cook. The office is open Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm. If you need assistance or to meet with a funeral director after hours please call our telephone number, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The branch covers all of Long Eaton and its surrounding area including Breaston, Castle Donington, Chilwell, Draycott, Hathern, Kegworth, Sawley, Sutton Bonnington, Toton and beyond.

Nigel Lymn Rose, along with his sister Jackie and his son Matthew, manages A. W. Lymn The Family Funeral Service, ensuring all families receive excellent care at all times.

    Dear Zaphron, Nathan and family, it is always a special privilege to know that we have helped your family at this incredibly difficult time. We are thankful that you felt guided through the arrangements and you were able to have the service that you felt was fitting for your beloved Mum. You showed a strength of character that I’m sure she will have been so proud of. ‘To live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die’ by Thomas Campbell. Take good care of yourself, thoughts and best wishes Lesley and all the team at A W Lymn.
  • 5 Jeanette Rao 9th Jul 2019

    My father who passed away luckily had bought a prepaid funeral from lymns 13 years prior to his death . I was absolutely ecstatic with the way the funeral was managed from start to finish . The care and support of lymns staff and management was of the highest standard and they helped the process to be  so much easier for all of us . Their ideas and experience helped us make the send off for my father a very special event and nearly every mourner who attended the funeral complimented me on the service and organisation on the day . I was that impressed I will use them for my own send off (not too soon I hope)  but am going to put something in place soon .thank you again lymns for making this a very special day and giving dad the tribute he deserved 

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Jeanette. I know that this was a particularly difficult time for you and your siblings. I am so pleased that with the help of Louise in advance and Louise and myself on the day of the funeral everything went as you had hoped. I am pleased that you realise the benefit of a prearranged plan but there really is no rush to put that in place. Thank you for your accolade. Nigel Lymn Rose, Company Chairman
  • 4 Roger Day 8th Jun 2019

    I was very pleased with the way Lymn at Long Eaton handled my mothers cremation arrangements. I would have given five stars apart from one error that occurred. I was most impressed with the way the issue was handled in both the speed to rectify and their communication. No apologies or trying to hide the problem, open and honest. During the planning there was no pressure to buy the most expensive. I had said it was to be kept simple and they obliged.  I would recommend this service.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Mr Day, we appreciate you taking the time to review the service provided by our team at Long Eaton. We are of course very sorry that the error arose with regards to the flowers but we thank you for acknowledging our efforts to both minimise the impact on you and your family at the time of the funeral and accept responsibility for it happening. We are glad that we were able to create the simple service you wanted and thank you for your recommendation.

    Louise at Long Eaton could not have been more helpful even when we wanted to change things, which she sorted out very efficiently. She made us feel that nothing was too much trouble and we felt that she really cared about giving Dad a good send off. She treated our lovely Dad with great care, both before and after he died.
