About Us

Although A W Lymn’s head office moved to Robin Hood House on Robin Hood Street in 1977, many people in the area still refer to this office as “Lymn’s on Bath Street”.

The head office, built by George Rose in the late 1970’s, has several in-house funeral directors to help families with their funeral needs, and also houses most of the company’s administration staff.

The office is staffed by funeral directors Tony Knowles, Mark Collishaw, funeral arranger Megan Rosier, office manager Sharon Draycott and receptionist Barbara Williamson.

The opening times are Monday to Friday from 8 am to 6 pm and Saturdays from 9 am to 12.30 pm. Our staff are also available to meet with you after office hours. Please call our telephone number at any time to arrange a convenient appointment.

Besides the administration and reception area, the premises have a coffin showroom, family rooms, visiting rooms, cold room facilities, a full fleet of hearses and limousines, a vintage fleet, stone masonry services and a florist.

Our head office serves all of Nottingham city centre and its surrounding areas including Bobbers Mill, Colwick, Hyson Green, Mapperley, Radford, Sherwood, Sneinton, St. Ann’s, The Meadows and beyond.

A W Lymn is owned and managed by the Lymn Rose family. Nigel Lymn Rose, one of the company’s directors, was president of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) during its centenary year in 2005.

    A huge thank you from all my family for the sensitive and caring way you managed this sad time for us all and for looking after our mum/grandma Barbara.  Kathy and David Worthington 

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Kathy. Thank you for the kind review. I was pleased to be told on the funeral that you were very satisfied with the help and advice given by my colleague Megan in the time before the funeral. I was also privileged to oversee your Mother’s funeral and felt at the end of the service that I was sad that I had not known her personally. I was pleased to be able to assist particularly after the way your daughter Kate had helped me by cutting my hair during my recovery from cancer some years ago. Thank you.

  • 5 Joy and Bella Otim 3rd Aug 2020

    Our funeral director Mark Collishaw has been so amazing from the first day! He made it all so easy for us to cope and plan. He has been reliable and always has a smile on his face. He is so well spoken and gets to know his clients needs so as to give the best service possible. My brother stayed with you for over two weeks but he always looked smart! The funeral was personalised and well planned! Everything we asked we got! We can’t thank you enough for all the support you! Want to say “I would definitely use your services again” but oh hell no!!’

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are sorry that it was necessary for your to require our services due to such tragic circumstances but we are glad that Mark's support, care and guidance made this difficult time a little easier for you. It is also good to hear that he took the time to get to know you so that he could offer appropriate suggestions to allow you to create a truly personalised service in memory of your brother. Thank you.

  • 5 Ian Hardy 27th Jul 2020

    Everything was done in a truly professional and compassionate way. An awful time was made so much easier thanks to A.W Lymns especially Mark Collishaw who was the main person we dealt with. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Lymns again but hopefully not for a long time.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Mark offered a professional and compassionate service throughout. We are also grateful to you for your recommendation but not for a long time! thank you.

  • 5 Guy Massey 9th Jun 2020

    Both professional and caring. A WONDERFUL company would recommend to every one.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Having known Adrian for over 45 years it was very sad to be called upon to oversee his funeral at a time of such restrictions. I was pleased that we were able to take him to the "yard" en-route to the crematorium and I am pleased that the services of our funeral director Mark, myself and the team proved helpful to Pat and you, your brother and all the family.
  • 5 Kevin Michael McCormick 8th Jun 2020

    I have nothing but praise for Nigel Lymn rose and his team. our wonderful son Harry died in Melbourne, Australia on April the 19th 2020. Nigel worked tirelessly to arrange his repatriation, even taking calls from Australia at three in the morning. I work closely with Nigel, Sharon, Richard, (The Celebrant) and the rest of the team, to provide a wonderfully crafted sensitive send-off for our lovely boy. Nobody could have done a better job of holding our hands and giving us comfort, throughout the process. I should add that during this period. We lost my mother in law. Once again Lymn's, in the person of Joanna, at the Clifton branch, guided us through an incredibly difficult time to leave us with some lovely memories. Sam and I thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Kevin, It was very sad to be called upon by you and Sam following the loss in Australia of your son Harry. This was a particularly difficult time for you in so many ways and I am only grateful that Sharon, Megan and all the team here were able to assist you and I in bringing Harry home to his native Nottingham and to provide a service that had a warm feeling in spite of the pandemic restrictions. Thank you for your accolade and thank you for the comments regarding Joanna at Clifton in regard to the death of your mother-in-law.

    I am glad that even with the current restrictions on funeral numbers those who knew your mum were able to pay their last respects before the service and that we gave her the send off she deserved. Mark.
  • 5 June York 11th May 2020

    Have used A W Lymn service before and was happy with their service which is why I used them a second time.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are glad that you were once agin satisfied with the service we provided and we thank you for taking the time to review our services.
  • 4 Julie Walsh 10th May 2020

    Due to the current circumstances with COVID-19, AW Lymn were unable to provide what we would have wanted for my Dad. This is no fault of theirs as there is only so much they can do under the current restrictions. Everything they were able to provide was very good. Funerals are extremely sad anyway, but to have to say farewell to a loved one this way, was heartbreaking.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are truly sorry that the restrictions in place as a result of Coronavirus meant that you were unable to create the service you would have wished for your Dad during this very sad time. We are however grateful to you for this kind review and we hope that in the future you are able to celebrate his life. Thank you.
  • 5 Karina Watson 9th May 2020

    The care and compassion shown from Mark Collishaw and Victoria Corder has been exceptional during the organising of the funeral, especially at this sad time of the overwhelming loss of a loved one. Thank you to everyone from A.W Lymn, Nottingham, that supported us.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for your kind words. We are glad that both Mark and Victoria have treated you with great care and compassion throughout this difficult time.
  • 5 Helen McDonald 24th Apr 2020

    Thank you to Mark and his team. He made the arrangements go easily, especially in these uncertain times. I could fault a thin

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was my honour to look after you during this sad time and I am glad that I was able to create a good passage for Georgina. Thank you, Mark.

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.
