Couldnt fault the service and the attention to detail for my husbands final send off.

Nicola McLean 30th Nov 2021

Tracey, you have been an absolute diamond! Myself and my brother found it so comforting to be able to sit with you (and have our lunch) whilst talking everything through and it was all made that little bit easier because of the relationship you had with Mum through all of life’s troubles that were thrown our way as a family.  Thank you to you for making such a devastating event so much more bearable with your compassion, deducation and sheer beautiful personality xx

About Us

Opened on 19th April 2021 Half Crown House on Derby Road is run by funeral arranger Tracey Sweeting-Rowe.

The new funeral home was originally an old bank and was ideal ‘blank canvas’ for a funeral home. It is now fully equipped with two chapels, onsite car park and an extended mortuary. The move follows the need for more space and easy customer access.

The fifth-generation family business first arrived in Stapleford in 2003 as part of the group purchase of the Ilkeston Co-op Funeral Group, taking over six funeral homes. Previously located at Parker House on Church Street, the company has since gone above and beyond to help local families through every step of the funeral process, offering support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The office is open Monday to Friday, from 9.00am to 5.00pm and on Saturdays from 9 am to 12.30 pm, but can be opened after office hours by appointment or you can speak with a funeral director 24 hours a day by calling our telephone number.

The branch serves all of Stapleford and its surrounding area including Bramcote, Chilwell, Sandiacre, Trowell and further afield.

Nigel Lymn Rose, former president of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD), along with his sister Jackie and son Matthew, manage A.W. Lymn The Family Funeral Service.

    It was my absolute pleasure to look after you and Mandy during this very sad time, having supported Mandy on several occasions when arranging family funerals with her and now with supporting you in arranging hers. I was also pleased that you had Donna, as a familiar face, on the day itself. Please remember I am always here if there is anything further I can help you with or simply to call in for a chat and a cuppa. Thanks and take care, Tracey.

    The care and attention to the details of what we wanted for our dearest Pete has been remarkable, there was nothing that this team would not do to make his memories special from the music to the Silver Land Rover. They are the best and as someone who organises Events and quite Picky that says a lot. Special thanks to Tracey, for her patience, co-ordination and to Julia who ensured the day was smoothly orchestrated. Denise, Paula, Liz and Anne

  • 5 Paul Newton 13th Feb 2021

    Tracey at the Stapleford Branch of which has looked after my Brother has been more than excellent. Tracey has gone the extra mile in caring for Richard and throughout the process from day one has been caring, supportive and understanding towards my whole family. In the current climates of UK Law, I could not have asked for a more personal and caring company to accommodate us.  AW Lymn have been wonderful throughout and even now are continuing to be supportive.  I personally feel Tracey deserves a lot of recognition for her work. She is a great asset to the company, I personally will never forget Tracey for the way she has cared for me, my family and my brother.  Thank you  Paul Newton 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied

    I have no hesitation in highly recommending A.W. Lymn. The personal care which was given to my mum and our family went above and beyond. At a difficult time and also being Christmas and the current situation with Covid, every effort was made to make my mum's funeral perfect. I have to make a special mention to Tracey Sweeting-Rowe of the Stapleford Office for her personal care, professionalism and genuine help, you are a credit to A.W. Lymn's. Thank you from all the Harrison Family.

    The team at Lymn’s were not only very professional, they went above and beyond at a very difficult time. Sensitive, compassionate and understanding, they took the time to not only deal with the obvious grief, but were also interested in our loved one, who had passed, having the most fitting tribute to a life well lived in the most dignified manner. Thank you from all the family!

    Mrs Mott, thank you for your kind comments about the service provided by our family company and Tracey at this sad time.

Thank you for your high appraisal of our service.
