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 the 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 Mike Kanigowski 27th May 2022

    Very impressed with Kirby throughout from start to finish. Her attention to detail was excellent.


    Everybody at the funeral share this sentiment and am sure if my Mother was looking down she would be suitably impressed.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you Mike for such kind words. It was a privilege to help organise just the right service for Mum. I’m so pleased she would approve of us incorporating some of the Greek Orthodox rituals into the committal. Sending my best wishes to you, Georgette and your family, Kirby.
  • 5 Catherine Low 1st May 2022

    We were very impressed with the service we received from A.W Lymn. Our funeral director Jack was very caring and attentive and answered all our questions, nothing was too much trouble.
    I feel they cared for my dad with dignity and respect. 
    Everything was well organised and I would recommend Lymns without hesitation. 

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you, Catherine, for your very kind review. It was a privilege to be able to get to know dad through yourselves, and to have the opportunity to support you through this difficult time. My very best wishes to yourself and Jean. I’ll be on the lookout for a bookies jacket! Jack.
  • 5 Rosie Coverini 26th Apr 2022

    We were absolutely blown away with the professionalism, care, love and thought put towards my father's funeral.
    From the moment we stepped into the funeral office, everything was made easy and we were listened too, nothing was a problem and you went above and beyond to make things go smoothly.
    Kirby applied such compassion and thought to helping us plan everything and Jack was so efficient and helpful with every query.
    We will never forget all your kindness at such a difficult time and we managed to have such a special day because of this.
    Judy and family

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you Judy for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to meet and look after you and your lovely close-knit family. I know how hard you all worked to make a truly personal service for your father, I think everyone was delighted to receive those little gifts in his memory on leaving the chapel. I’m glad I could help things go just right. Sending warmest wishes to you, Rosie, Fabio and the boys. Kirby
  • 5 Ian Tegart 22nd Mar 2022

    The service we received from Jack Pestell was fabulous, very person centred, patient and nothing was to much trouble, from the order of service to the very pleasant staff on the day of the funeral made everything perfect.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you, Ian, for your kind review, it really was lovely to meet you all and to chat about yours and Pam’s life together even under the circumstances. I think her send off encapsulated everything that Pam was, you should all be very proud of what you did for her. My warmest regards to you all, Jack.
  • 5 Amanda O'Hara 12th Mar 2022

    Amazing !

    Jackie Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you very much, well done to your two small children they behaved impeccably well throughout the sad proceedings.
  • 5 David Fisher 19th Feb 2022

    I'd not needed a funeral company for over 15 years when we last used Lymn's and two more times before then. My memory was of most helpful people in sad times.
    When I suddenly needed help in January 2022 I called upon their services again.
    They swiftly responded sympathetically and had most respectful members of staff with me the same afternoon. I can't say it was a pleasure to watch them deal with my departed mother, but I can say that they handled her and spoke to her throughout, just as we did. Most reassuring.
    Conversations with Kirby and Jack then followed as the medical paperwork arrived. Both were professional, but appropriately friendly. The helpfulness I'd remembered was as good as ever and the funeral arranged to our families requirements with advice and explanation from both Kirby and Jack, on a wide variety of matters.
    Our funeral went most smoothly with several members of Lymn's staff being involved. All showed respect throughout and were helpful and understanding.
    When you see how hands on Kirby is you can understand why the service is so smooth and reassuring.
    Thanks to all involved. Our family appreciate how you undertook your duties.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Dave, words cannot express how grateful we are to receive such a wonderful review or how much your kind words mean to both myself and Jack. I’m pleased Jack could take care of Mum from the very beginning, bringing her into our care and then assisting me with all of the arrangements to ensure her day went perfectly. It was a privilege to support you all through this difficult time. Sending our best regards to you and Joy, Kirby.
  • 5 Kevin & Dawn Smith 8th Feb 2022

    From first contacting Jack at the Wollaton office he showed kindness and understanding, his professionalism for a young man is exceptional.  On the day of the funeral Kirby supported me and my family impeccably at what was a very stressful time.  I have no hesitation in recommending Lymn’s as they give a professional and personable service which you need at a difficult time

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you very much for your kind words and review, it was lovely to be able to look after both mum and you during this difficult time and offer you our support. You created a truly personal celebration of her life. Myself and Kirby’s warmest regards and best wishes to you, Kevin and your family.
  • 5 Karen Buckland 4th Feb 2022

    The service provided was excellent throughout. Kirby and Jack were professional, considerate and respectful in every aspect of the funeral from our first contact through to the day itself. I cannot recommend them highly enough and thank them for calmly dealing with any issues that arose.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Karen, thank you so much for your kind words. Jack and I really appreciate you taking the time to leave your review. It was a privilege to support you through this difficult time and ensure Dad’s service went perfectly. Best regards to you and your sisters, Kirby.
  • 5 Mary Daws 29th Jan 2022

    Thank you Jack and Kirby for the wonderful way in which you ensured that my Dad's funeral was so fitting. You enabled all the family to be so much a part of it. We very much appreciated the attention to detail and the kind and considerate way you conducted this professional service.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you, Mary, for your kind words, it has been such an honour to guide you through this process and celebrate the life of a remarkable man with many a story to tell. My best wishes to you all, Jack.
  • 5 Margaret Stanley 18th Jan 2022

    Cannot fault any of the service we received.  Service was excellent.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you Margaret for another positive review and the kind words you sent in your card. Although it was sad to see you all again so soon after Mum’s funeral, I’m glad I could support you through your brother’s service and make things a little easier. Kindest regards to you, Glenn and Paul, Kirby.
  • 5 Camille Periton 14th Jan 2022

    With Sensitivity and kindness but also very professional. A W Lymn  can be highly recommend. 

    Jackie Lymn Rose replied
    Mrs Periton
    Thank you for your very kind comments, the service was so beautifully planned by you and your family, the attendance on the day was certain testament to a much respected, husband, father, grandfather and colleague .
  • 5 Dale Wright 11th Jan 2022

    Jack was very helpful and understanding in the preliminary steps, and Kirby did an excellent job in directing the later stages, especially with an unusual funeral. Can not thank them enough for all the help, very professional but personal, great team, really good at what they do, felt very much at ease around them, should be very proud. 

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you Dale for your kind review, I’m so sorry that we had to meet again so quickly. Dad’s service was truly unique, there was no more fitting a way for him to travel than on his lorry. He would have been proud. Kind regards, Jack.
  • 5 David Wood 2nd Jan 2022

    Excellent service from start to finish

  • 5 Karen Bailey 30th Nov 2021

    We met Jack under the most horrible circumstances following the death of my wonderful mother. He was caring, compassionate and dealt with the situation very efficiently but with care. Over the next 5 weeks we worked with Kirby to make arrangements and she was absolutely brilliant. We didn't want a traditional funeral and they helped us organise the most wonderful celebration of my mums life and we could not be more grateful for their help and support. Thank you to Dave and Peter for helping the day go off without a hitch.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Karen, thank you so much for your lovely words. As a family you worked so hard for Mum’s special day, Jack and I are so pleased we could support you through that. It really was a celebration of her life, a unique and beautiful tribute and something we will never forget. You should all be so proud. With our kindest regards, Kirby & Jack.
  • 5 Christine Cunningham 30th Nov 2021

    As always the funeral service was of the highest quality, always the family touch and attention to detail.

    Thank you Christine for your kind review, and thank you for entrusting us to look after Danielle. She was a remarkable woman and getting to know her through you was an honour. Jack.
  • 5 David Whittaker 29th Nov 2021

    We have used Lymns a few times, they are professional from start to end. Staff come across as very caring and they all do a really good job in helping through a tough time

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
