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.

Andrew Rutherford 11th May 2020

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

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.

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 and Funeral Arranger Alan Matthews

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.

    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 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.

    What an absolutely lovely family and it was my privilege to help you through such a sad time. I was particularly pleased with how the order of service and the keepsake cards came out. We all wish you well. Thank you, Alan.

  • 5 Julie Page 15th Jan 2020

    I want to say a huge thank you to Alan and Julia at the Wollaton branch. I was treated with compassion and kindness and they made a sad and difficult time bearable for me and all the family. The funeral was professional, dignified and incredibly well run with a large helping of human kindness. We had the funeral on a Saturday and viewing of mum specially arranged for Saturday morning to accommodate relatives flying in from Ireland. Nothing was too much trouble and I am so very grateful. Thank you again.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    Thank you for taking the time to leave this positive and detailed review of the service provided by Alan and Julia. We are glad that their kindness, compassion and professionalism made this difficult time a little more bearable for you and that the ability to view Mum and have the funeral on a Saturday made a difference for your relatives travelling from Ireland. Thank you.

    The whole experience from the start of organising to the funeral itself was  seamless with great attention to detail. We were guided along every step of the way by Alan Matthews with his obvious expertise. The funeral director on the day, Julia, was perfect as was our driver and other staff in attendance.

    A wonderful family who deserved, and received, only the best from us all. It’s so nice to receive such lovely words and sentiment. It really drives us forward. Thank you so much. Alan.

We note that on this occasion you have given a 4* rating, and if there was anything further we could have done for you to improve things for you then we would welcome this feedback. Thank you.
  • 5 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.

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are all pleased that we lived up to our reputation for delivering a quality service for your Grandma. Thank you so much for being a lovely family. You deserved only the very best help and care and we’re so glad you allowed us the opportunity to provide it. Best wishes from us all. Alan.

  • 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.

    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.
  • 4 Gordon Carrington 19th Oct 2019

    Very kind and considerate to myself and family at this most stressful time 

    Chloe Lymn Rose replied
    We are so pleased that everything went well and all my heartfelt and kindest wishes are sent for everyone. Thank you, Alan.

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.
