Sharon Scaniglia 12th Nov 2019

The whole process was carried out professionally with care and attention from the phone call at 3 am in the morning to the funeral service and then collecting funds for our chosen charity and care of the ashes. I was comforted to have a women come to the house to collect my mothers body and then have contact again with her at the funeral, just knowing she looked after my mother was reassuring. Thank you to Jackie Lymn Rose and her team, an excellent company to lead us through this experience at a difficult time in our lives.

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 director Tony Knowles, funeral arrangers Megan Rosier and Alan Matthews, office administrator 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.

Thank you, Nigel.
  • 5 Adriana Hurt 25th Aug 2019

    Can I thank Jackie personally for her work. Everything went well, the flowers were beautiful. Nothing went wrong, everything went to plan Thank you Jackie. Also the gentleman that drove us to Wilfred hill was very friendly, to all my family, he was very careful putting my nephew in and out of the car in his wheelchair. He felt very safe. Also he was very kind in showing me my sister and two brothers how to carry my Mam correctly. We were so pleased that we could carry Mam it meant a lot to us.  Thank you A W Lymns 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely review. Jackie is glad that everything was just as you planned as that you thought the flowers were beautiful. I have also passed your kind words to Wayne as it is always lovely when a member of staff receives special praise for their care and kindness. Thank you.
