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 the 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.

    Alan. Thank you for your kind review and in particular for the nice comments about Tracey and myself and the team on the day. It really is sad when called upon to oversee a funeral of someone so young. It was however a privilege to be involved and it was lovely that so many hundreds of people attended and that you were allowed to have personal music and that you and Jack and George were able to make such precious comments in your eulogies. I am pleased that the crematorium was able to accommodate our change in time of arrival. Again thank you. Nigel

    I have nothing but praise for the caring, sensitive and highly professional service provided by Tracey and the rest of the team. Her willingness to help and support me through the process of arrangements made everything so much easier to understand and the calmness of her approach provided a safe place for me at a very difficult time. The funeral itself proceeded at the Crematorium in a very unobtrusive and helpful manner and I felt respected and supported throughout.many many thanks!

    Everything worked really well. Lymn’s were very helpful & we managed to incorporate lots of ‘special’ things that meant a lot to us (eg a Scottish piper’)

    It was a pleasure to look after you, Mr Mountford, and the arrangements for your mum, Zoe. I was very pleased to hear that everything went smoothly on the day of the service and that all your family were happy with our arrangements, and I'm glad the planned route with a pause outside Mum's care home for her carers to pay their respect was well received. Thank you again, Tracey & Louise.

  • 5 Danny Kinney 1st Apr 2023

    We couldn’t be happier with the funeral director’s especially Tracey she went above and beyond to make us all feel welcome and helped is all to deal with the passing of my mum. She’s 1 in a million and would 100% recommend Lymn over any other funeral directors
