A.W. Lymns were excellent from start to finish, we cannot fault the service provided. From our initial meeting with Megan through to the funeral service and burial nothing was too much trouble. The funeral went smoothly and was a fitting tribute to our father. Special thanks go to Barbara who attended to all our special requests and to Andy Bruce who conducted the service beautifully. 

Valerie Stephens 13th Mar 2019

Well coordinated from start to finish  Megan kept us updated at every stage, and was available when we called

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.

    Funeralzone is a brilliant idea. Not sure  how to advertise more to the friends and families in order to leave messages or donations. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We appreciate your positive feedback particularly in regards to the FuneralZone system and can assure you that our staff do all they can to highlight the merits of the system to our clients. We do however share your concern that others are not aware of the system and this is something that both us and the site themselves are trying to address. Thank you.

    A respectful and excellent service.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Angela. I have known members of your family for many years and indeed your niece worked with us over twenty years ago and is still fondly thought after. It was therefore with added sadness that our family firm was called upon to undertake the funeral of your late husband. I am sure it was a help to see so many of the Italian community in the Cathedral and I am pleased that the service we provided was to the high standard you expected. Thank you. Nigel Lymn Rose

  • 5 Margaret Taylor 18th Nov 2018

    From the very first phone call I made to A.W.Lymn everything was handled professionally and smoothly by Alan Matthews. A funeral for a loved one is very difficult to arrange but Alan made things so much easier and straight forward. His communication with me (Pete Sheridan) for every detail and every step of the planning was first class. So from the initial phone call right through to the burial everything and everyone including the bearers were first class and very professional. ......Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for this very kind review. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with as you knew exactly what you wanted and had almost all aspects of the funeral decided beforehand. You went out of your way to be contactable for the various choices and decisions that needed to be made throughout. I am so glad that everything went well and as you had envisioned. Kind wishes to you all. Alan.
