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 Kevin Browne, Paul Richardson, 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.

  • 5 Caroline Khera 24th Jan 2021

    From the first contact with A W Lymn made me feel calm, I spoke with Megan and then met to discuss the funeral of my wife. She was so caring and thoughtful and respectful. She listened to my ramblings and still organised everything with respect. They take the personal touch and made me feel that they would take great care of my wife. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. They care, I can never thank them enough for what they did and how they made the worst experience of my life into a feeling of how not to forget all the memories and laughter my wife left me. From start to finish they were truly amazing.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased you felt that your wife was in safe hand when you entrusted her to Megan and that the care and guidance given by her throughout made this terrible time a little more bearable for you. We are also grateful for this very kind review, thank you.

    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.

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.
