Professional and understanding service from start to finish. Thanks for your part in making a difficult day run smoothly.

Grazia Ventrella 6th Sep 2017

My husband passed away in the home and Lymn handled my beloved with care and empathy. The funeral directors came out to speak about the funeral arrangements and dealt with everything in an acceptable manner. My only gripe would be the handling of the coffin to see these guys deal with many a day, it wasn't carried out in a great fashion. Russell was with us throughout the arrangements and funeral - very professional, respectful. Great to have a familiar face throughout. Well done and thank you.

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.

  • 5 Andrew Roussos 30th Jul 2017

    Nigel and the team did our daughter justice. Everything was perfected to the last detail. They brought us back home wanting nothing more. Can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Andrew and Lisa. This is a funeral that we really desperately wish that there had not been the need to arrange and conduct. The circumstances of the death are so tragic and nobody can express the sorrow that we all feel. Both of you were amazing with your strength and your wish that Saffie-Rose achieved international fame. In my time as a funeral director, now approaching fifty years, I have never experienced such emotion as that expressed in the short video clips produced by Saffie-Rose's friends, many only of her age. What a beautiful girl who, at such a young age, has made her mark on this world. My family, staff, sister Jackie and I were all saddened but immensely privileged to be involved with your family on this sad occasion. Nigel
  • 5 Christine Hickey 19th Jul 2017

  • 5 John Scruton 8th Jul 2017

    The personal service, preparation and care in arranging the funeral for my mother was exceptional. The owner and staff of Lymns could not have been more helpful or considerate at what is a very difficult time. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Mr Scruton. Thank you for your very kind review. I am sorry that my son Matthew who knows your son Ben was out of the country and unable to oversee the funeral arrangements for you. I am however pleased that the services provided by Julia and I in his absence proved to be to your satisfaction. Thank you. Nigel Lymn Rose.

    Outstanding company. Faultless service and support from our first telephone conversation with Lymns to the end. Nothing was too much trouble or a problem for them. Every wish was tendered to and they took care of my mum, and us with the utmost care and professionalism. Our Funeral Director was Julia Carty and she was amazing, supportive, caring and professional. A true credit to her profession. Thank you so much.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

    Jackie Lymn-Rose was very professional and understanding at all times. Nothing was too much trouble, helpful suggestions were made for our family's emotional needs and all of our questions were answered respectfully, quickly and with plenty of detail. We knew what to expect at every stage of the process and we were taken through all aspects of our services at the appropriate times. There is a level of professionalism, empathy and attention to detail with A W Lymn that would be difficult to find elsewhere.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Jackie offered great support and guidance at this difficult time to enable you to make informed decisions and understand what would be happening at all times and she joins me in thanking you for this lovely review.

  • 5 Vicky Lamb 21st May 2017

    Outstanding service from lymns. Professional at all times always go that extra mile to make your loved ones last journey perfect. A proper family feel to the service they provide. 

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Vicky. Thank you very much for your kind response. As you know John’s relationship with our family business goes back nearly fifty years. He was, throughout most of his working life, a loyal and much loved colleague and friend of the people we serve in the local community. I thought that the letter that he wrote for all the family that was read at the funeral was so moving. In so many ways John’s life touched others when they were at their lowest ebb and for the help, support, care and friendship he gave in those situations he will always be remembered with such high regard. Thank you.
