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.

    A beautiful goodbye. Respectful and courteous. Deepest gratitude for our treatment at this incredibly difficult time.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    It was a privilege to be involved on the day of Susan’s funeral particularly as your grandfather and grandmother had been involved with our family firm some thirty years ago and given that you remembered me from when you were a child. I am pleased that Julia Carty and the team provided such respectful and courteous service and I am very sorry that you are having to use our services again already. Thank you. Nigel

    It was a privilege to be the funeral director conducting the funeral of Sharon Marks last Friday. The family were an inspiration to others and I was very pleased that they had found the services of our funeral arranger Megan to be flexible and accommodating of their wishes. There was a lovely feeling in the service conducted by a family friend at Wilford Hill and there was a warm welcome on arrival at the Trent Vinyard church. Thank you. Nigel Lymn Rose.

  • 5 Nigel Blackwell 13th Feb 2018

    A first rate service by thoughtful, sensitive and experienced people who provided excellent advice especially in relation to the order of service and advice to have a celebrant.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Nigel, thank you very much for your kind comments about the staff at our family company and the advice about the use of the celebrant Keith. As you know Penny and I, and indeed all our family, had been close friends of your Dad, John. Although very saddened we were all privileged and honoured to be involved in his funeral and we thought that your address and the lovely comments you made about John’s life were so apt. Thank you Nigel (Lymn Rose)
  • 5 Julia Penniston 11th Feb 2018

    I cannot praise the staff at Lymns funeral services during the time leading up to my dad’s funeral and on the day. They were helpful, professional, organised, adaptable. They never got in the way but they helped us all during a difficult time. Nothing was too much trouble and help was there 24 hours a day if needed. Thank you so much. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Nigel and Jackie were very pleased to have been able to have served your family, particularly as they had known you all for so many years. I am particularly pleased that the services of Megan and the team in our Nottingham office proved helpful and that they were able to provide the help, support and assistance you needed without becoming obtrusive. Thank you for your very kind feedback.

  • 5 Anne Morrell 19th Dec 2017

    The funeral involved repatriation and a considerable delay before cremation, both of which Lymns handled with the utmost professionalism and efficiency, but also with great compassion.  Nothing was too much trouble. We got exactly the right balance on the day of the service too. Given the complications, we would have expected to be faced with a very large bill, but that was not the case. Can't recommend Lymns highly enough.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this very kind and detailed review. At what was obviously a difficult and stressful time for you we are glad that Jackie's professionalism, efficiency and compassion made things a little easier. We are also glad she was able to support you in creating a personalised service and we would thank you for your recommendation.
  • 5 Mark Fletcher 18th Dec 2017

  • 5 Loretta V. Lewis 30th Oct 2017

    Stacey was incredible organising Dads funeral. Barbara was our day to day contact and she was nothing short of perfect. She handled the constant revisions for the order of service, and she authentically comforted family members on the day of the viewing (she went above and beyond with my wife as no request was denied). On top of that, she supported me wash and dress my Dad. She was patient, sensitive and warm. I can not sing her praises enough. On the day, Matthew was a class act. He rolled up his sleeves and participated in the burial of Dad, and many times could be heard singing the hymns louder than anyone else. He navigated the very hard job of being invisible whilst at other times actively participated and added to the celebration of Dads life. He was more than a funeral director and he was a great source of strength. He also looked after my Mother with TLC. Everyone from your company made a very difficult time easier. I'd go as far to say that your company will allow us to look back on the day and smile. Thank you

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Irving Jnr, I cannot thank you enough for your warm and positive review on behalf of your Mother, Sister and yourself. Stacey, Barbara, the entire team and I are appreciative of your feedback, and take great comfort in knowing that our contribution to Dad's day made it a little easier and memorable for you and the family. Best wishes, Matthew.
  • 5 Shireen Graham 8th Oct 2017

Everything was taken care of, staff were very kind and considerate. the funeral was more than what we could have hoped for, with special thanks to Joules, Dave, Nev (special thanks from your passengers) Tony, the motorbike driver and all who helped us in our time of need.  Thank you from Trish and family Bless x

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Julia and the rest of her team would like to thank you for taking the time to leave this kind review. She is pleased that she was able to take care of everything for you and make you feel at ease during this difficult time. Thank you.
  • 5 Anne Farnsworth 3rd Oct 2017

    I would like to sincerely thank Matthew for his professionalism.  His attention to detail resulted in my mother's funeral being as good a day as we could have hoped for; my mother would have loved it. Megan was also great; an asset to the company.  Thank you. 

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Anne, you are really too kind. Thank you for your comments about Megan and I, it was a lovely way to celebrate a long life, well lived. With my best wishes, Matthew.
  • 5 Marcus and Pauline Wakely 1st Oct 2017

    Everything was very competent and professional, dignified and kind. Made things easy for us, with no hassle. So thank you. The 12 year old twin great grandsons still talking about their ride in a magnificent Rolls Royce!

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    It was a privilege to be involved in this funeral and I am pleased that the service of the staff at our family company, and in particular Megan, helped the family with their sad loss. I am pleased that the great-grandsons were able to focus on the journey in the Rolls-Royce. I thought that the service both in church and at the crematorium had a lovely feel and it was particularly touching that the grandson remembered his grandmother’s wish of twenty years ago and was able to spontaneously play the special music on the organ at the crematorium. I am grateful to Father Marcus and all the family for their kind words about the service we provided. Thank you. Nigel Lymn Rose CEO
