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.

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 Roger Holwell 23rd Sep 2021

    We recently entrusted my Wife's funeral and cremation to Lymns and they handled all the arrangements faultlessly. We were met by the Wollaton Branch Director, Kirby, who expertly helped us to plan out a fitting celebration of my Wife's life, on a non-religious basis which we required, guiding us through every possible aspect and proceedure, to provide exactly what we wanted to achieve. The Celebrant who they recommended, Richard, planned and conducted the proceedings excellently. Our gathering of about 40 Relatives and Friends felt that they had said "good bye" to my Wife in the most memorable way. Well done and thank you, Lymns.

    A.W. Lymn, Wollaton Team replied
    Thank you Mr. Holwell for taking time to leave your lovely review. Your kind words are very much appreciated. I am so pleased we could, together, create Rita’s celebration of life just as you wanted. It was a privilege to take care of you all. Best wishes, Kirby.
  • 5 Vale Johnson 14th Sep 2021

    Thank you Vale for your kind review, to look after Gordon and yourselves was a real privilege and I wish you all the best for the future. I hope the betting slip was a lucky one. Jack
  • 5 Tony Hogg 7th Sep 2021

    Both Kirby and Jack were wonderful. They guided the family through such a difficult time. They provided a first class service, showing true professionalism, care and dedication throughout. We are so thankful that even in death our beautiful mum was given the best care. A further thank you to Nick Sharp the layman who gave my mum a wonderful send off. He was both dignified and uplifting, capturing the very essence of a wife, mother and Nannie.
