So helpful, caring and are with you every step of the way. Wouldn’t use any other 

Janet Smith 20th Jul 2021

I cannot thank Jackie and her staff members for everything they did for us. My mums funeral went so well. I cannot thank the staff enough for the kindness they showed me whilst i sat with my mum the whole day before her funeral. Jackie went above and beyond what she needed to. that is why AW Lymns are the top of their game. Once again a massive thanks on behalf of all my family.

Teresa Anne Hornby 7th Jul 2021

Fantastic service from start to finish. Cannot thank Paul enough for all his kindness and help

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, Danny Doherty, funeral arranger Megan Rosier 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.

    Thank you Lymns for the assistance given to us over this sad time of losing Joe.

Our best regards, Marilyn, Ian and Claire

    It was a great privileged and an honour to assist you and your family with these arrangements and pleasing to note that, despite the ‘impersonal’ impact of the COVID regulations, arrangements by Zoom and many phone calls, we were still able to provide a personal and compassionate service. Thank you, Kevin.

    The service for my mother was lovely, really well organised by Paul and Jackie, they were so respectful and gave us lots of time! They were in touch from the start to help us do everything even in covid times we felt we had plenty of support. Arron was our celebrant and did such a good job, again kept in touch lots and guided us through what needed to be done, spoke like he'd actually known her. Very happy with Lymns

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.
