Richard Edwards 30th Nov 2019

They made the best of a bad day, this was the second funeral they have conducted for us in 5 months so that speaks for itself.

Kelly & Simon Bartles 26th Nov 2019

Alan at the Wollaton branch was fantastic. Caring and helpful when I wasn't really sure what I was doing. I'm sure my grandma would have been happy with the service at the crematorium and all the Lymns staff involved. Thank you.

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.

  • 5 Linda Shaw 18th Nov 2019

    A W Lymn of Wollaton provided excellent service for my mother's funeral last week. Everything was organised perfectly with great attention to detail, and it was all done in a very thoughtful and caring way. Alan and Julia helped so much, both with the arrangements prior to the funeral, and also on the day, ensuring that everything went smoothly - I cannot praise them enough.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    A truly lovely family. It was a great privilege to serve you. Julia and I are extremely delighted that everything went smoothly and we wish you all the best. Thank you, Alan.

  • 4 David Martin 25th Oct 2019

    The most important thing was that everything was absolutely right on the day , when Julia Carty handled everything impeccably, including the Rolls Royce on our return from the crematorium. There were one or two superficial misunderstandings during the days before our mother's funeral, but the head office systems and supervision must have all worked very well.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are very pleased that everything was absolutely right for you at the time of the funeral and that Julia in particular looked after you so well. We are however sorry that there were a couple of superficial misunderstandings and if we were involved in any way we would welcome the opportunity to discuss these further with you so please feel free to contact either Alan, Julia or Head Office should you wish to do so. Thank you.

  • 5 James Smales 14th Oct 2019

    We cannot fault the excellent personal service, advice and help given to the family in planning Stephen`s funeral at such a difficult time. The promptness in changing things at our request, communication and keeping us up to date with the arrangements being made on our behalf, was really good. On the day of the funeral, we were given time and not rushed when getting in and out of the funeral cars. After the lovely, sensitively led service, we had time to speak to people. The day went so smoothly and nearly everyone who attended the funeral sent messages later, with really positive comments. Thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are absolutely delighted that the whole service went well. You were all so nice and deserved only the best. Thank you so much for your kind words. Alan.
  • 5 Bev Jowett 6th Oct 2019

    The services of A. W. LYMM at Malcolm Billington's funeral was of the highest quality, although the pall bearers struggled a little with Malcolm being such a big chap, but all in all the treatment of the mourners by the staff was very good.

  • 5 Graham Morton 21st Apr 2019

    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.
