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 fourth generation 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 funeral home is staffed by funeral directors Kevin Browne, and Philip Wilson, funeral arranger Megan Rosier and Luke Mellor and receptionist Lucinda Pallett.

The opening times are Monday to Friday from 8 am to 6 pm and Saturdays from 9 am to 12.30 pm. Staff are also available to meet with you after office hours. Please call the 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.

A.W. Lymn's 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 Lynne Crooks 3rd Mar 2024

    At such a difficult, upsetting and stressful time the service we received from AW Lymn was excellent from the first point of contact to the end of my mum’s funeral.  Philip was brilliant he immediately put us all at ease and helped us when deciding on what we wanted for our mum.  He did exactly what he said he would and contacted us promptly. I would highly recommend Philip and the other staff members we came in contact with.

    Thank you, Lynne for this kind review. It was an honour to arrange your mother's funeral and hear the stories of her life, and I'm glad everything went exactly as we had planned. Philip.

Philip our funeral director done an amazing job in keeping my very large family in order and guided us through the day. Its all the little touches that makes such a sad day that bit easier to deal with. From bowing everytime they walked past my dad to the hand warmers given to us by our driver. Thankyou so much you are truly amazing

  • 5 Conrad Gilbert 3rd Feb 2024

    Absolutely superb Funeral service I would like to thank all staff at Nottingham for their kind caring compassionate understanding in our time of loss of our wonderful adorable mother Shirley Gilbert. Nothing was ever to much the staff were always on hand with their advice and truly comforting words. I wish to make special mention of Kevin Brown from start to finish he guided me and was an absolutely wonderful human being. I would also wish to say thank you to Lucinda on Reception, who greeted me regularly with kind words understanding and a reassuring voice. My mother's funeral service was conducted impeccably by Kevin and all the staff. Many Thanks to Father liam for carrying out a lovely service instructed by AW lymn on behalf of ourselves an excellent choice. I finally wish to pay to tribute to AW lymn God bless all the team Kindest thoughts Conrad

    A.W. Lymn, Nottingham Team replied
    It was a privilege and an honour to be able to guide and support you Conrad in the making of the funeral arrangements for your beloved Mother, from the initial discussions in December 2023 to the day of the service itself. I thought the service, led by Father Liam, was a truly wonderful tribute to a lovely lady and am pleased that the support of Lucinda and all the team at Nottingham helped you all through this challenging time. Thank you, Kevin.
  • 5 John O'Connor 2nd Feb 2024

    Lymms provided my Father, Sister, and me a service that was filled with empathy, compassion and patience. A truly individual service that ensured that my mum had everything she wanted, and a send off that was befitting of such an amazing and wonderfully inspirational woman. Philip was the consummate professional and always available to answer any queries and provide the support that we needed from ensuring the chapel of rest was available for relatives arriving from overseas to the release of doves and provision of additional orders of service post the service. Thank you.

    A.W. Lymn, Nottingham Team replied
    John, thank you for your kind words. It was a privilege to assist you all at this difficult time, and I'm glad you were pleased with all that I did for you.
    Kind regards, Philip
