About Us

The Wollaton branch originally belonged to the Ilkeston Co-op Funeral Service before being incorporated into the A W Lymn group in 2003. The funeral home was formerly based on Arleston Drive in Wollaton, but was moved in late July 2014 to a purposed designed site on Wollaton Road called Deer Park House.

The new premises has off-street car parking and a beautiful visitation room with its own private waiting area.

The office was formerly a police station and features a large, bright, modern client reception, as well as state-of-the-art rooms.

Senior funeral director Richard Marshall is responsible for the branch and is assisted by funeral arranger Alan Matthews.

Richard and Nicola are available at the office Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and on Saturdays from 9 am to 12.30 pm. You can also make an appointment to see someone after hours via our telephone number.

The branch covers all of Wollaton and its surroundings including Bilborough, Bramcote, Nuthall, Strelley, Trowell, Watnall and beyond.

A W Lymn The Family Funeral Service is managed and owned by the Lymn Rose family. Nigel, Jackie and Matthew Lymn Rose are the directors of the company.

    AW Lymn Wollaton could not have done more.  Everything went to plan and on time. The Funeral  Director on the day managed every last detail with care and compassion. Family and guests were able to focus on what mattered and not worry about anything. The family were looked after from the very beginning with costs and options made clear and in writing. Any questions and queries, both initially and during the intervening period to the funeral were dealt with promptly and appropriately for the situation. I have no reservations in recommending AW Lymn Wollaton.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It is really lovely of you to give us such praise. It underlines our desire for attention to detail, and the empathy that we put into each arrangement to give every family the absolutely best funeral service for their loved one. You really did deserve the best. Kindest wishes from us all. Alan.

    the 2staff at wollaton we’re the most professional personable and genuinely caring i have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I didn’t feel like a customer, more like a member of a family and planning and carrying out my dads funeral was made easy because of it. they explained everything to me step by step and ensured the attention to detail was done without me having to do it in such a traumatic time. i cannot thank them enough. it takes a certain type of person to do that job and they carry it out with ease empathy and care Thank you x

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    My team and I were all delighted to have helped you provide the funeral that Malcolm deserved and it is so heart-warming to receive such kind praise. Thank you very much, Alan.

    I feel from start to finish I have received a professional and friendly service from all of the staff at the Wollaton Branch in particular Alan who I saw on several occasions to discuss the arrangements for my dads funeral. Alan was fantastic! He was very patient and understanding and Nothing was too much trouble. He assisted with arranging for additional photographs to be printed in his own time which was above and beyond his daily duties and very much appreciated. The staff were always polite and offered lots of advice,  guidance and support  throughout this difficult time.  The service and burial went smoothly and everything I asked for was adhered to with lots of reassurance and support from Julia who was brilliant  on the day of the funeral.  The staff at the Wollaton branch were exemplary throughout the process and I am extremely grateful for the service I received. I cannot Praise the staff enough for there help and good service. They continue to uphold the excellent reputation of AW Lymn and I would highly recommend this branch and AW Lymn to any friends or family. Thank you all once again. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was truly a privilege and an honour to help such a wonderful family. We had several meetings to go through and clarify different areas of the funeral and I was extremely careful to ensure that nothing was lost in the translation. I am very grateful for my colleague Julia’s help. There was certainly a lot of detail to get right and I was very happy to bring an element of my graphic and photo manipulation skills to bear in sorting out some family photos for you; I was very pleased with the results and I’m very happy that you were too. Again, with the help of Julia conducting the funeral, I’m delighted that everything went off without a hitch. Thank you, Alan.
