The standard of service was excellent. Skye guided me through the process with patience and compassion ensuring that all aspects were considered and giving me the opportunity to think carefully when planning the funeral. I would thoroughly recommend Lymns to anyone facing the most difficult time in their life- thankyou very much for your kindness

Janice Taylor 12th Dec 2023

Nicholas Lowton 12th Dec 2023

Kirby has been absolutely incredible with both my Grandad and now my Nanna’s funeral. Her kindness, compassion and professionalism are second to  none. The whole funeral ran smoothly and it was just how we had hoped it would be. Thank you Lymns x

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 help of Funeral Arranger Sky O’Neill.

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 Rita Oldham 10th Nov 2023

    Perfect service from start to finish, myself and my family have never arranged a funeral before so we didn’t know where to start! Everybody at A.W. Lymn were professional, supportive, knowledgable and understanding and we couldn’t have got through this without them. My mum got the send off she deserved thanks to these guys. Thank you!

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you Rita for these kind words. It was an honour to assist you with Mum’s service and I am so pleased the send off was fitting for her.

  • 5 Parul Jani 21st Jun 2023

    My sister and I could not have asked for a more caring, respectfully thorough and kind person than Skye O'Neill at Wollaton, to support us mentally and emotionally whilst guiding us through the Funeral processes for our Mother.
    Skye moved mountains and helped us bridge administrative chasms, supported by her manager, and managed to book and organise a Hindu cremation service a week to the day of Mummy's passing.
    Everyone else involved at A W Lymn also enabled this expedited service, and they all also have our own and our families' grateful thanks.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Parul & Jay, thank you so much for taking the time to leave this beautifully worded review, it honestly means so much. I am so pleased we were able to fulfil mums wishes for the service and I could ease your stresses slightly in this difficult time. I would also like to thank you all, for welcoming me so openly into your family while also teaching me your traditions along the way. It was an honour to assist you, I wish you both & all the family the very best for the future. Skye & The Wollaton Team

    All 3 are a credit to the Team.

    Thank you, Angela, for taking the time to leave this review. It was our pleasure to assist you all and an honour to help with dad’s beautiful service and be welcomed so openly by all your family.

  • 4 ALISON BUTTERY 4th Jun 2023

    The funeral directors were recommended by neighbours and were friendly and professional. There were some last minute changes but on the whole these were substitutions for the better and made a difficult day easier to navigate.

    My Mum had been clear on the Order of Service she wanted and we were able to fulfill her wishes and likewise with the scattering of her ashes.

    I would recommend A W Lymm as a supportive service during an heightened emotional experience.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    I am glad that we were able to meet your Mum's specific requirements with the Orders of Service and her ashes, and we thank you for this kind review and for your recommendation. Skye & Kirby.
  • 5 Annette Sivers 28th May 2023

    Thank you, Annette, for your kind words. It was an honour to assist with Dad’s service and have a insight on his remarkable life.
