I was very happy with my dealings with your company. The advice and help given by Kirby Cranshaw was very good and the Celebrant, Mr. Richard Marshall did an excellent job. City Flowers also did me proud.

Sylvia King 17th Nov 2020

From beginning to end the service was impeccable. Kirby treated us with kindness and respect and her knowledge was invaluable. She recommended a lovely lady minister ( Kerry ) to lead the service because she thought  she would reflect my mum’s personality and beliefs and she was perfect. I send my upmost thanks to everyone concerned. 

Christine Jamieson 9th Nov 2020

Kirby was professional in every way and carried out her duties perfectly. She was with me every step of the way on one of the saddest days of my life. She also showed great empathy and encouraged me every along the way and said she was proud of how I had read the poem and dealt with the pressure of the day. She is surely a cherished member of the team.

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 Jill Kelk 17th Oct 2020

    Our contact at the Wollaton Branch was extremely helpful and professional in arranging the funeral of my father, Harry, at Bramcote Crematorium. She always hit the right tone in all our contacts with her - and that was really appreciated at such a stressful time. We are extremely grateful for the help we received and would not hesitate to recommend Lymns to anyone looking for funeral services.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Jill for your kind words and lovely review. I am so pleased I could help and guide you through this difficult time. Best wishes to you and the whole family, Kirby
  • 5 Amanda Cliffe 10th Oct 2020

    Thank you so so much for making my dads final farewell so lovely. It was so important to me to make it perfect in every way possible for him and you made my wish achievable. You worked so hard with all my requests and most importantly of all, you looked after my precious dad for me whilst he was in your care. There is absolutely no one I would have rather taken care of him for me. All in all, you made organising my dads funeral as stress free as at all possible. You were so kind and knowledgeable about absolutely everything! You have been a real help to me throughout this whole horrendously sad time. You all achieved the farewell I wanted for my dad and delivered him so seamlessly to his final resting place. I will be eternally grateful to you all for coordinating this very important day for my dad and myself. It was so perfect. You are all true professionals thank you.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Amanda, as you already know it really was a privilege to take care of your Dad and help make everything just right for his service. Although current restrictions tamed things slightly, you worked tirelessly to ensure Storming Norman got the perfect send off. Thank you for entrusting me with the arrangements and inviting me into your family to guide you through. Your kind words mean so much to me and I will cherish them. Sending you, Craig and the girls my warmest wishes, Kirby.
  • 5 Amanda Dring 3rd Oct 2020

    Thank you so much to Russell and Kirby, from Wollaton, for the organisation of my Father’s funeral. My family and  I have been overwhelmed by the compassion and professionalism shown to us during a very sad time. It was appreciated very much. Also, thank you to Malcolm, the celebrant, who spoke of my Father as if he knew of him personally. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    I am so pleased that all went well for you and the family and that the service we provided, including Malcolm Barham the celebrant, was all professional and compassionate. Thank you for your kind words. Russ.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Jean & John, thank you for taking the time to leave your review and for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you both and help you through the arrangements for Maurice. I’m pleased we could help Aunty Daisy attend and hope it was of some comfort to her. Best wishes to you both, kindest regards, Kirby.
  • 5 Jane Bartrop 18th Aug 2020

    I felt very comfortable discussing issues and raising any questions with Kirby at the Wollaton Office. Her manner was lovely. When she was not there her colleagues also provided an excellent service. The opportunity to have the service streamed and then a recording on the obituary page were much appreciated. The Covid safety measures were good. It was very much appreciated that Nigel found time to be there for us at the chapel.

    Nigel Lymn Rose replied
    Jane. Thank you for your very kind and complimentary review of our family company and in particular the support given by Kirby at Wollaton. Your father being my personal tutor at school over 50 years ago very much played a part in my formative years and for that I am very grateful to all your family, and it was a privilege to be able to assist at mother’s funeral. Thank you.
  • 4 Catherine Eyre 16th Aug 2020

    Kirby Cranshaw was very caring and dealt with all a large families questions very professionally. The horses and carriage were beautiful and the reflections coffin better than we could have hoped for. Thank you again.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for these kinds words. We are glad that you were so pleased with all the personalised elements you selected and that Kirby was very caring and professional.

  • 5 Andrew Collings 4th Aug 2020

    It was such a difficult time for me to loose both parents in a matter of days. From start to finish the care , Patience and professionalism shown towards me were exemplary  Special thanks to Kirby ( Wollaton) who just made the whole dreadful process so much easier! Huge thanks . Regards, Andrew Collings 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Dear Andrew, thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review. I’m pleased I could help you through such extraordinary circumstances. I hope Mum & Dad’s joint service was fitting for them both, especially the floral contributions from their allotment friends. It was testament to your hard work in making it just right for them. Best wishes to you, Kirby.
  • 5 Linda Ahern 24th Jul 2020

    What can I say. Kirby at the Wollaton office is amazing she is so professional friendly and caring. Without her knowledge and caring way we would not have been able to have the service we wanted for Beryl nothing was too much trouble and we were kept informed all the way. Beryl is being buried in Stockport which is a long way from Nottingham and we thought it would be a lot of organising we needn't have worried Kirby did everything for us and we thank her so much. I have used this funeral directors for my own parents and have found them to delver exceptional service before and after the funeral. I would go to no other funeral directors

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Linda, I can’t thank you enough for your kind words. It was a privilege to be able to help Beryl to her rightful resting place with her husband. It was lovely to meet you and your family, guiding you through the arrangements. Warmest wishes to you and Mike, Kirby.
  • 5 Neil Minton 13th Jul 2020

    Was so impressed from start to finish. It was an excellent send off for my mum who I’m sure would have been proud.  Kirby and the team were very professional.  Many thanks Neil Minton. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you Neil for your lovely review. I’m pleased I could help you all make everything just right for Mum. Best wishes, Kirby
  • 5 David Foster 12th Jun 2020

    First class service from start to finish. Was most impressed by the kindness and consideration shown at all times. Most professional. Highly recommend them. Many thanks to all.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you David for such a kind review. It’s lovely to hear you were impressed with our team here at Wollaton. I am pleased I could help you through all of the arrangements for your Aunt. Kind regards, Kirby
  • 5 Patricia Rowson 9th Jun 2020

    During Lockdown arrangements for the funeral were made via phone and email but still I felt there was someone ‘holding my hand’ and guiding me through every step.  Julia, at Wollaton,  was patient and supportive and the service was perfect.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are pleased that Julia was able to make you feel like she was holding your hand throughout the arrangement process even though this had to be done remotely due to COVID-19 and we are glad that the service was perfect.
  • 5 Sally Jenkins 4th Jun 2020

    I cannot fault Kirby, Julia and team. They provided an excellent service and were always friendly and supportive. Most of all though, they care about their customers at a very difficult time. That care shines through in everything they do and makes the whole experience more bearable for the bereaved family and friends. Thank you. Sally

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Sally, it was a privilege to take care of Mum and I thank you for sharing your stories with me. I am so pleased I had the opportunity to help you and your wonderful family through this time. Sending my warmest wishes to you, Dad and Matt as well as “virtual hugs” from Julia. Thank you, Kirby.
  • 5 Martin Ingram 1st Jun 2020

  • 5 Elaina Howe 30th May 2020

    I would highly recommend using this funeral director, they were professional and extremely friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure the day was perfect and went as smooth as possible. Kirby was the lady that looked after us and her customer service skills were just amazing! Such a lovely caring person. Thank you so much :-)  Elaina & Helen x

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    You all worked so hard to make sure everything was perfect and that all of Lee’s family were included. I enjoyed hearing the stories about Lee and getting to know you all better. I’m so glad I could help make the day just right for you. Thank you, Kirby.
  • 5 Phillip Evans 17th May 2020

    AW Lymn (Wollaton) have been warm, friendly, respectful and easy to deal with from the start. Alan and Julia were helpful, kind and professional following the loss of our beloved Heather. With the current crisis over everyone, nothing was ever too much trouble and we were able to give Heather the send-off she would have wanted and deserved. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to deal with someone else's loved one.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are really pleased that desipte the current restrictions the team at Wollaton were able to help you create the send-off that Heather both wanted and deserved. Thank you.
  • 5 Andrew Rutherford 11th May 2020

    Caring and kind thank you for all you have done kindest Andy 

    Matthew Lymn Rose replied
    Thanks for the kind words Andy, sorry I wasn't with you on the day but I hope Kirby and the team looked after the family in the way you would have expected them to. Best wishes.
  • 4 Fiona Minney 24th Apr 2020

    The team in the Wollaton branch worked really hard to help me give my Mum the best send-off possible, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, for which I will be forever grateful. They offered me advice, support and comfort at one of the most difficult times in my life in a professional but personal manner.  The staff provided me with compassion and time when I struggled to make decisions or got confused about things due to my extreme tiredness, and endeavoured to satisfy all my requests. I felt my Mum’s physical being was treated with dignity, respect and loving care.  I felt she was safe with them and I trusted them with her.  When I went to visit my Mum in the chapel of rest there was an overwhelming sense of peace in the room. The only reason I haven’t selected ‘Excellent’ was due to very last minute (as in within the 2 hours prior to the hearse arriving at my Mum’s bungalow) telephone calls regarding the length of the funeral service and me having to choose what to omit from the order of service in case we ran out of time.  There was also a last minute notification that I would be unable to witness the charging of the coffin - but was then fortunate enough to actually be able to do this anyway. Overall I would highly recommend A.W.Lymn and would like to thank them for everything they have done for me and my Mum. I will be using them again for my Mum’s memorial service when the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was indeed a pleasure in helping you and your family through what was a traumatic period for you all. We all put our hearts into caring for both your family and your Mum, and I can only sincerely apologise for the last-minute hiccup in terms of timing and scheduling of the service. We were delighted that we were able to schedule the witness charging of the cremator as a final send off. Please accept our warmest wishes to you all. Thank you, Alan.
  • 5 Anne Hazard 31st Mar 2020

    Losing our mother was devastating   But trying to organise a funeral Due to the outbreak of The Coronavirus was was difficult and only added to our grief    However , thanks to Alan and his team Everything went as well as could be expected ...given the circumstances. and we were  so very grateful for that . Thank you x

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Our heartfelt thanks to the whole family for such lovely words. We are grateful to be able to help you through such a difficult time. Thank you so much. Our thoughts are with you all. Alan & Kirby.
  • 5 Elizabeth Hughes 24th Mar 2020

    Excellent service, thank you. Alan Matthews in particular was very professional and extremely helpful as we put together Dad’s funeral during all the chaos of the coronavirus restrictions. We still managed to do Dad proud despite all the obstacles fate threw into our path.  Many thanks. 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    It was an absolute delight to serve you. With all the many restrictions coming into play it was certainly a challenge. Nevertheless, I’m heartened to know that the funeral arrangements were the best they could have been. As always, these things are a team effort and I’ll pass these kind words onto my colleagues. Thank you, Alan.
  • 5 Linda Allen 23rd Mar 2020

    The team at A W Lymn Wollaton were so professional, caring, kind and organised that I cannot say enough about how impressed I am. Kirby was excellent in every way, she is certainly perfect for her role which must be quite difficult at times. Alan too was always helpful, pleasant and welcoming every time we visited the premises. I am sure my Mum, Marjorie Hutchinson, would have been so pleased that she chose A W Lymn to look after her. With thanks for everything. Linda Allen

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Linda, It felt like an honour to look after your Mum for you and I sensed from you that things were just as she would have liked. I felt very proud to have arranged and conducted this service and am really grateful to you for your very kind words. Thank you, Kirby.

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.
