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.

The office is run by Funeral Director Kirby Cranshaw.

The funeral home is open 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.

  • 5 Collette Shanahan 2nd Apr 2021

    Very professional service. The lead for the coffin were very respectful walking in front of the coffin, quite old school with a top hat a walking stick which is the type of thing we wanted without really knowing it. The hearse was very prestigious without the price tag one would expect so I was very pleased my mum went out in style 

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you Collette for taking the time to leave a lovely review. At A. W. Lymn we take pride in still offering these respectful traditions and I’m pleased that this helped add to Mum’s special service. Kind regards, Kirby
  • 5 Lesley and Charlie Benson 29th Mar 2021

    Kirby Cranshaw, the Funeral Director at Wollaton was very good, gently leading us through the process, up to and including the funeral itself. She made it seem almost effortless, along the way. We thank her very much for that.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you so much Mr. Benson for your kind comments. I’m pleased to have guided you through all of Michael’s arrangements and help make that journey a little easier for you. Best wishes, Kirby.

    A.W. Lymn Wollaton branch has provided a excellent service to us. They were very welcoming and became part of our family, sharing our feelings and thoughts. Kirby went out of her way to ensure all our late fathers wishes were met. The staff looked after our tiniest needs and requests. They even looked after my son while we peacefully performed our rituals at their branch. I can't thank them enough they have really helped us ensure the funeral went smoothly and peacefully. Thank you very much Kirby and Team.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Hemangi, thank you for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review. I’m so pleased we could help you create just the right environment for Dad’s service. I will be sure to pass on your thanks and kind words to everyone involved. Best wishes, Kirby.

  • 5 David Beidas 18th Feb 2021

    A W Lymn handled our mother's funeral with complete professionalism and courtesy. The ever helpful Kirby at the Wollaton office was extremely organised and efficient, taking all our requests (and changes of mind) in her stride. We felt the service went off perfectly and was a fitting tribute to our mother.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    David, many thanks for your kind words. I think you and the whole family created a wonderfully personal service for Mum and it was a privilege to help you through. Best regards, Kirby.
  • 5 Paul Roper 17th Feb 2021

    A W Lymn's service was in every way excellent nothing was too much trouble and they did everything in their power to make a difficult situation as comfortable and easy as possible. I would certainly recommend their services to anybody in the future. They might not be the cheapest funeral service but they are certainly the best.

  • 5 Bruce Foster 17th Jan 2021

    From the very first phone call I was confident I had chosen the right people to look after my dear wife and that proved to be the case. I had carefully planned what I wanted and Kirby and Julia made sure that everything was executed perfectly. A truly professional service delivered with care and empathy. The online obituary facility along with the online viewing of the service were used and appreciated by a large number of friends and family, truly excellent additions to the overall service provided. Thank you so much for helping to make such a sad day so memorable. Bruce Foster

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are truly grateful to you for taking the time to leave this wonderful review.

We are further glad the the online facility proved useful during these challenging COVID times. Thank you again.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
