The staff at Lymn were so helpful and thoughtful throughout arranging my husband's funeral. Special thanks to Kirby who guided us through the process of making the decisions and liaising with other agencies. Everything ran perfectly on the day.

SIMON CLARKE 28th Mar 2023

Perfect. Kirby, Skye and team could not have been more helpful. They ensured that the entire process from start to finish was as easy as it could be. Hugely supportive, they kept us updated throughout and made what was a daunting task, a smooth transition. Thanks to all at Wollaton Lymns.

David Johnson 27th Mar 2023

This is the second time we have made use of Lymns services. We were very happy with their services when they took care of my mother and no less so this time when they took care of my sister. So happy that we are going to transfer our funeral plans to Lymns own plan. D & T Johnson.

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.

    I and my Daughter and Family would like to say how fantastic the service provided by Kirby at the Wollaton branch has been .. she and all the staff actually have gone over and above to help and provide us with an absolutely 💯 seamless service .. from just an hour after Patrick passed away to the final trip for us to the “ Wake” Kirby was no less than superb .. my Grandson who is just 8 has now many “ good” memories of his Grandfathers funeral… so important at this age , and I would recommend Llyms and especially Kirby and Cary’s with complete confidence.. thank you from Judi and Sarah Riley

    The only possible improvement would be to have the orders of service delivered when received so that they could be given to the church ushers before the thanksgiving service.
