The service we received from AW Lymn was exceptional. We were kept informed every step of the way and everything went very smoothly on the day of the funeral. Theresa and Courtney at the Ruddington office we’re very helpful. 

Virginia Hannah 20th Nov 2019

Absolutely outstanding service from start to finish. Louise and Teresa looked after us and nothing was to much trouble. The guys on the day of the funeral, driving the cars and pallbearers, were amazing, professional and courteous. The whole team made an awful experience more bearable. Thank you!

Christine Pullen 12th Nov 2019

Funeral director Teresa Spencer is in charge of the funeral home, assisted by funeral arranger Gary Cook. Teresa and Gary will be more than happy to help in person Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm and on Saturdays from 9 am to 12.30 pm. You can also schedule an appointment to be seen after hours if it is more convenient for you. To do so, please call our telephone number, which is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

The office covers all of Ruddington and its surrounding areas including Bradmore, Bunny, Burton on the Wolds, Costock, East Leake, Hoton, Keyworth, Kingston upon Soar, Normanton on Soar, Normanton on the Wolds, Rempstone, Sileby, Stanton on the Wolds, Sutton Bonnington, West Leake, Widmerpool, Willoughby on the Wolds, Wysall and beyond.
