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.

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.

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 with the assistance of Funeral Arranger Jack Pestell.

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.

    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

    From beginning to end the service was impeccable. Kirby treated us with kindness and respect and her knowledge was invaluable.

I send my upmost thanks to everyone concerned.

    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.

    Thank you so much Christine for your very kind words and for allowing me to support you through that difficult time. I hope you raised those sparklers to Auntie Wyn. Sending you my best wishes for your new chapter, Kirby.

    Our contact at the Wollaton Branch was extremely helpful and professional in arranging the funeral of my father, Harry, at Bramcote Crematorium.

We are extremely grateful for the help we received and would not hesitate to recommend Lymns to anyone looking for funeral services.

    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
